Fenton Art Glass Company is the largest manufacturer of handmade colored glass in the United States. The Fenton Art Glass Company was founded in 1905 and discontinued most production in 2007 producing some of the most collected art glass items. They have since partially reopened the facility. This is a beautiful carnival 7" planter produced by Fenton from 1970 - 1972 known as the Mermaid Planter. This is a dramatic and desirable planter in amethyst purple made from a modified Verlys mold. The pattern is all exterior and features mermaids in different poses around the exterior of the planter. The planter has a scalloped top edge and beautiful irridescence. The planter is actually 6 1/2" tall and 7 1/4" across. The planter has a smooth flake on the base rim but is otherwise in excellent condition. The planter is marked the the cursive Fenton in an oval on the base. This is an extremely heavy item. A delightful addition to any collection.
