is a beautiful Fenton bell in ruby red glass for auction from my mom's estate. It stands 6.75" tall and 3.5" across the bottom. The clapper is a clear round glass sp on a silver-look chain. Very delicate. This bell has no cracks or chips and has never been repaired. I would say "mint" condition, but I am no expert appraiser; just an amateur appreciater. It may not meet collector-standard "mint" qualifications. I do not know what year this was made. I am sure in the 70's or 80's because that is when my mom and I were making our annual visits and tours of the Fenton factory. T are 4 medallion impressions around the body of the bell with a flower sprig under each medallion. The same flower with leaves winds its way up the handle, also. I cannot identify the flower. It looks like a rose to me. The medallions have no other designs inside of them. I have not found this bell in any of my Fenton reference books, but the pattern is similar to the madonna bell medallion. T are no markings on the bell, but I suspect that it was a sticker label that fell off years ago.

If you have questions, please email me several hours (or days) before the auction ends. I try to check the computer a couple times a day. And I still have dial up service, so a last minute response is almost impossible. We are cleaning our closets, so I am not accepting returns or offering refunds. You are buying the item "as is", although I cannot see any flaws in this delicate little piece. It would make a great gift for your favorite Fenton or bell enthusiast. The "word" on the web says Fenton will be closing in November. So this may be a rare chance to purchase this item before the holidays.

Payment is due within 7 days of the auction's end .

I prefer Paypal but also accept money orders and cashier's checks. I try to ship within 3 days of receipt of payment. Insurance is not mandatory, however, it is highly recommended due to this item being fragile. I am not responsible for its arrival conditon once it leaves my closet. I will pack it with the utmost protection, but t is never a guarantee as to how it gets handled. Buyer is responsible for all shipping, handling, and insurance costs.

I ship only to the United States.

Thanks so much for looking at my auction. I have a few more items currently listed, and will be listing a few more Fenton pieces from my mom's estate before Christmas, so keep your eyes open. Feel free to browse...and shop! Happy Bidding!
