Just a quick update. I took this comport back to Fenton this morning for another round of debate, and, from another hour or so of searching, and with your help we decided that we're going to call it an early 1970 Fenton piece. It is, because of the twisted base and smooth rim features, an anomaly of Fenton's normal production type. It might be that the craftsmen were still trying to figure out their new mold. In any event, it is rather unique, which may or may not add to any subsequent value, but it's still a very cool comport. Itâ€™ll be on eBay as early as tomorrow in the usual category.
Thanks to you all for your help. You havenâ€™t heard the last of me, I assure you! The next time though it will hopefully be with my sign on name instead of guest.
Thanks again, Mark
