The Vasa Murrhina cruet has a hand-engraved 'S'.

Flame S - used in the early 1990s 

Stars - (solid or outline) June 1996 - July 1998; a double star was used on seconds donated to charities for fundraising activities.

Critter Corner

By Becki Ann Selby

Fenton's 5225 puppy is 3.5" long and was introduced in 1987. The mould was created by Tony Rosena and had a smooth tail (pic. right).

The mould was revised in 1998 by Jon Saffell, having more defined fur and a bushy tail. Less than a dozen examples were made using the original mould.

At present, the mould is owned by the Fenton Gift Shop. They have had Mosser Glass press the mould providing puppies to decorate.
