A Colonial Green glass handled basket by Fenton Art Glass. The basket measures 8 1/4" across and 7 3/4" from base to the top of the handle. The basket's base has a thumbprint pattern and crimped edges and the handle has bamboo impressions. The condition is pristine, with no chips, cracks, or evidence of use. This basket would look great on a bar cart filled with limes.
Fenton Art Glass Company was founded by Frank and John Fenton in 1905 and is best known for producing carnival glass, hobnail milk glass and practical housewares out of its factory in Williamstown, West Virginia. In 2011, Fenton ceased production of its traditional glass making and refocused its efforts on glass beads and jewelry making.
