Fenton Candle Bowls

These beautiful candle bowls were produced by Fenton in 1959. The Plum Opalescent is a rare find as there were only about a dozen made that year.

The color of the deep purple plum and the accent of the white opalescent finish make this one of Fenton's most strikingly beautiful bowls. Each candle bowl is about 3 5/8” tall and 8 1/4” wide and they look stunning with a candle glowing in them.

In 1959 Fenton had not started embossing the Fenton logo on their merchandise yet so these are unmarked. However, if you know Fenton Glass you can identify them immediately by the ruffled edges and the quality of the glass.

These are just another example of why Fenton is one of the leading art glass companies.
