Fenton satin custard bowl
« on: October 25, 2009, 02:15:45 PM »
I know who but I would like to know when and what pattern name please. A Fenton uranium satin custard glass bowl with a grape pattern, conveniently marked underneath. Surprising thick and heavy. I have a pair of these and one is very poorly pressed - the pattern is very indistinct.

Hi Christine - it's modern Fenton, of course, but the pattern is the old Imperial "Heavy Grape" one. Fenton call it a "Grape Cluster" nappy. I don't know when Fenton made the colour that that you have, but if the Fenton trademark/logo on the base has a number in it, then that will give you the decade. The mould was certainly in use in the 1970s in Carnival.

Thanks Glen, no number, the no-so-good quality surprises me I must admit

If it's Fenton only within the oval, with no number, then it is most likely the 1970s.

A quote from a photo caption in Heacock's "Fenton Third 25 years": "Custard satin was introduced in 1972 and was still in the line in 1983".

The Carnival version of the pattern is shown in a 1971 ad and a 1973 ad (same book).
