I have a pink opalescent glass vase with a crimped top -  4 1/2" tall x 5" across the center. Can anyone identify maker and or pattern? Thanks.

Billings, 1999 p.151 suggests Fenton c. 1960s, but there's no example illustrated —

Spherical rose bowls with eight crimps that do not bear the Fenton star were made in several additional patterns, including ... cranberry opalescent vertical stripe (called "rib" by the company), ...

See p.129 and Fig.421 for what Johanna Billings has termed the "Fenton Star".

This is Fenton's No. 201 crimped rose bowl; it appears in our 1939-40 catalog and was available in various colors, including the "Cranberry Red" that collectors now call cranberry opalescent.

I'll try to post later regarding Billings and the Fenton "star."

Is anybody else having problems seeing Wolf's pictures? All I get is a blank screen with the link printed at the top.

OK for me Carolyn. Try right clicking and copying and pasting into a new window.
