This unusual vase by Fenton is a rare example of their version of Peloton glass. It is made from their so - called "Blue Burmese" (in my opinion, it's not a bit like Burmese glass, nor is it blue...) which on this piece shades from pink to a muted mauve shade. The vase measures 13.2 cm tall, 10.5 cm across the wavy, loosely crimped top rim, & 4.7 cm across the base.
It has applied Peloton threads in red, iridescent blue, yellow, & white.
Dates from 1984 & was apparently made as a special order for the Fenton Art Glass Collectors Association.
As I have a great enthusiasm for Peloton glass, it interested me as being a late 20th century version of this relatively obscure decor. And it sits quite well with my Victorian glass.
