Glen, please I need help again!

Hi Glen,  

As you know I have bought two pieces of carnival glass, one I managed to identify as Fenton acorn, but the other, the one I thought would be a doddle to find, is driving me mad.

I thought it was Fenton Dot pattern, but the dots are smooth and the edge of the dish is wrong, so I looked at Westmoreland and although the dots look OK once again the dish shape wasn't there, but it does look like the comport.  :?
Here is the dish/plate in question.

Hi Barbara - I believe it's a Fenton item. If you read through this thread you'll see the link I gave to a similar piece in my article on Candy Ribbon Edge pieces.

Hope this helps, Barbara.

Hi Glen,

Many thanks once again. I was so sure I was going to impress you this time and find both without help :D but not to be.

I did find the Northwood peacock and urn, only to get it home and find it damaged across the base, one of the casualties of that  :twisted: auction.
 Talk about "buyer beware" :cry:

Many thanks again,

Barbara

Oh Barbara - so sorry to hear about the damage. Still a lovely item though (to be carefully cherished).
