Vintage Fenton Glass Blue Overlay Top Hat Basket #1923 Ruffled Edge Applied Handles c1940
A lovely little vintage basket by Fenton Art Glass in blue overlay c1943-1953. This top hat style basket has a ruffled edge and applied handle. It is in Very Good+ one owner estate condition with no flakes, cracks or chips to the glass. It has a gorgeous blue color somewhere between aqua and robin's egg blue. Our photos are true to color. This will look great with any vintage decor and it is a nice size to display alone or in a grouping. We have a little Art Glass Boot toothpick holder in our shop now that looks great with it.
The basket stands 6 1/2" to the top of the applied handles. It measures 4 1/2" X 3 1/2" across the ruffled edge with a 2" opening. The base measures 2" across. The only note we have to make is that there is a spot I could not reach on the inside of the basket to clean. I could not find my bottle brush, it is a simple yellow spot stuck in the curve of the inside of the basket. It will come out with a soak and something narrow enough to reach inside the groove - this does not show upon display. (see photos).
A lovely little piece of Fenton that is now between 65 - 75 years old.
