Fenton Glass 1910's Green Carnival Nine Sixteen Spearhead & Diamonds Vase
The golden era of carnival glass was from about 1905 to the mid-1920's. The iridescent luster on this patterned pressed glass is achieved by spraying the hot surface with metallic salt solutions. A lot of pieces were produced and sold in the major stores of the time like Woolworth. Carnival glass was created to rival the iridescent glass of the time which would be Tiffany. Fancy glass for the common man. The most common color is known as Marigold with the green color being harder to find. Not all pieces were made in all colors.
Here we have a Fenton Green Carnival Vase that is referred to by two different names : Nine Sixteen and Spearhead and Diamonds. This vase is rather tall measuring in at 15 inches. It has a wonderful sheen and reflects the light very well. A very beautiful and scarce specimen. Displays well from all angles.
Exceptional vase in that it is undamaged, no chips, no cracks, no scratches. Any non-perfections are from the firing/manufacturing process. Dimensions are below.
