Butterfly and Berry Bowls, Fenton

Butterfly and Berry was Fenton's most popular pattern and is found in a fair number of shapes. The pattern was used on the exterior of other Fenton patterns--Hearts and Trees, Fantail, and Panther. Fenton also whimsied some of their bowls. Above are a green bowl with typical shaping and a blue bowl with the sides straight up called a fernery. If these bowls are slightly cupped in, they're referred to a rosebowls. If the bowls are widely spread into an ice cream shape, the're called centerpiece bowls. Imported fake bowls are known in white and amethyst.

Mel and Lynne Dey of Canada sent me this photo of a black carnival glass Butterfly and Berry large bowl they had bought at an online estate auction. They point out that no light can be seen through it even with a bright LED lamp. I have never heard of a Butterfly and Berry piece in black carnival before. Most unusual.

Mel subsequently told me he discovered the bowl was a fake.
