Perhaps JayHow could verify if this piece is a Fenton basket? It has a number registration for 1970's! Many thanks!

    Hi! Very interesting and unusual piece. The following is not your basket, but it contains a description of a similar item, and it also refers to a book that might prove useful to you.

    Hi, here's a link to the same basket. This is a definitely a Greener piece. The question remains whether or not Fenton reproduced your basket. I haven't seen the marks you refer to and don't know Fenton well enough to answer that question. Love the color and opalescence! Best wishes for success!

    miKKoChristmas11 - Thank you very much for all your time and effort! I have had a look at the links and will continue to chase up any information. The basket has a registration number beginning with a 9 which puts it into the 70's era. But it is identical to the one in the link as to its form, so will get on and try to find out if Fenton did reproduce it. Thanks again miKKoChristmas11 for all your help!!

    miKKoChristmas this is a Henry Greener Victorian Vaseline glass posy bowl from approx 1880 - 1890's. The Registered number does not relate to the general metal and glassware registration numbers, (as I thought) but to Greener ware only (96945). I checked with the seller of the identical basket to compare the number and then looked at Greener ware. Would never have got there without a pointer in the right direction. Many thanks!

    Thank you epson233! - I am still chuckling about your comment on Bellin and the the eating of crackers!!! Gem!!

    JayHow, just to add a little confusion, not long after I had attributed this basket to Greener, I saw on Twentieth Century Glass the very same one (same number) attributed to Davidson. So do not know what to think about that! If you turn anything up please let me know!¬)
