Just 'Cuz it Says Fenton...

By Anne Blackmore

Below top:  Federal Glass Sharon (aka Cabbage Rose) pink plate.  This is machine made, therefore is considered Depression Glass.

 

 

Below left:  Beaumont Daisy in Criss-Cross Blue Opalescent Pitcher.  The pattern dates back to 1895. 

Below:  Tiffin Black Grotesque Cat.  The Alley Cat came to Fenton from US Glass.  Tiffin was a division of US Glass. To distinguish a Fenton black Alley Cat from a Tiffin Alley Cat, examine the satin finish - the Tiffin finish is acid etched, therefore beyond smooth.

If you know your Fenton shapes, you will be less likely to purchase a mis-labeled piece, and more likely to find a Fenton rarity!  Remember the late Tom Smith's mantra, "Know your shapes!!"
