Fenton Peacock and Urn Carnival Glass



I purchased this sick Carnival Glass plate for only $4.99 at the local thrift store.  We're talking about a piece of American hand pressed Carnival Glass made before 1920, in mint condition.  I believe this series was produced starting in 1911.  Ignorance is not always bliss, know what to look for!

Fenton's version of Peacock and Urn is perhaps the easiest to distinguish.  You will notice a saw tooth edge and the Bearded Berry on the back.  You'll also recognize the straight, stiff neck of the bird.  As with other Peacock and Urn patterns, there is a bee just beyond the beak of the bird.
