Fenton Drapery(?) Bowl
« on: March 20, 2006, 01:32:39 AM »
Hi All,

Could someone help me with a date of production on this Fenton Bowl.  I believe the pattern name is Drapery.  Approx.  10" wide, done in a beautiful shade of dark cranberry with a very nice opalescent treatment.  Has the Fenton logo on the bottom, but almost unreadable and I can't find this particular pattern in any of my Fenton books.  Many thanks in advance.

I looked in my books also and couldn't find it.  It isn't in Compendium 1 or 2, the 1990s decade book or Special Order 1980-present.  So given that, it wasn't in the regular line prior to 1999 and if it was a special order, it wasn't from 1980-1999.  

With the darker cranberry color, I suspect it is newer.  They changed the formulation and the cranberry is much more intense in the newer pieces.  I would date it sometime in the 2000s but I am not sure which year.

Forgot to add:  It may be a QVC piece (in fact it looks more like what they sell on QVC) rather than a regular line piece. I would still date it to 2000+

Look at the logo under a loupe and if it has a "0" then it was made in this decade.

Thanks, Connie.  I have looked with a loop, but the logo itself is almost unreadable, let alone the number in the oval.
