April Showers vases, Fenton
April Showers vases are found in only one base diameter, 3 1/2 inches, with a plain base. Heights vary from about 6 inches to about 13 inches. Fenton's Peacock Tail pattern is seen on the interior of most, but not all. Tops can be ruffled into a variety of shapes, including the tightly crimped shape on the right of the group photo. Note the scallops where the pattern meets the base as shown in the close up photo. This pattern is often confused with the similar Fenton Rustic which has regularly spaced hobs, Fenton's Knotted Beads which has small hobs within circular or oval panels, and Northwood's Tree Trunk which has crescent-shaped lines around the hobs.
