Just 'Cuz it Says Fenton...

By Anne Blackmore

Right:  Foreign-made black-edge basket, likely a recent Asian import.  Characteristics indicating this isn't a Fenton basket include a large amount of Crystal glass on the foot, no handler's mark, and the black crest is too thick.

Below left:  Northwood Ribbed Spatter pattern 5-inch pitcher.  It was produced by Nothwood in the early 1900s, along with a full-sized pitcher and salt and pepper shakers.

Below right:  New Martinsville Jade Perfume with Black Stopper.  This New Martinsville perfume, made in the 1930s, has the taller, more slender bottle and the taller narrow top.

If you know your Fenton shapes, you will be less likely to purchase a mis-labeled piece, and more likely to find a Fenton rarity!  Remember the late Tom Smith's mantra, "Know your shapes!!"
