Peacock Tail, Fenton

Peacock Tail is found in a variety of bowl shapes and colors as well as bonbons (both stemmed and collar base), compotes, hats, and an occasional plate. Red bowls (above left) seem only to be found in 6-7 inch ice cream shapes and always bring exceptional prices. The amethyst square ruffled and crimped bowl is very rare. It measures 7 1/2 inches across (9 1/2 on its longest dimension) and is courtesy of Gale Eichhorst. Hats were sometimes used to make advertising pieces.
