In this lot is a Fenton Amethyst Mermaid Carnival Glass Jardiniere Vase, ca. 1970s. This iridescent MERMAID pattern by Fenton Art Glass Company was made using an old Verlys mold which they modified to make it their own, fluted rim and raised mermaid and fish decoration. The pattern has six mermaids and three sea creatures in different postures. Fenton Art Glass made Carnival Glass originally from 1907 through to the late 1920s. In the 1970s, they revived the techniques of making Carnival and re-introduced Carnival Glass products that have become best sellers and known throughout the world. They used their own original moulds, moulds they had bought from other glassmakers that had gone out of business (such as Imperial), and many, many new moulds that they made in their own mould shops, or jobbed out to other mould makers. Fenton oval cartouche stamp on bottom of base dates production to 1971. This Fenton carnival glass piece was discontinued in 1973 after only 2 years production. This jardiniere vase is in good condition with minimal scratches on base edge, no other damages noted. Measures 6.5''H x 7.25''W, 5'' base
