Mosser is making vaseline opalescent on a pretty regular basis, but Fenton has not made it in a couple of years that I know of.  Cullet is tough to find right now for the small independent glass artists, as most of the cullet comes from a jobber, who got it from Fenton and that source has dried up.  IF anyone is making cranberry opalescent, it would be Fenton, but I am not up on their current line.
