Here is a blue compote made by Fenton Art Glass Company for the Red-Cliff Company. It is 6" high x 5" top x 4.5" bottom. This is only the second piece of Red-Cliff that I have ever seen and the asking price for the first piece was too high for me to even consider it. Not sure if this stuff really sells for that much. I paid $1.99 plus tax at a thrift shop for this one today.
The Red-Cliff Company was based out of Chicago, Illinois and recognized for their distribution of Fine China Dinnerware. All pieces with this signature were produced by the Fenton Art Glass Company, but sold and distributed by Red-Cliff Co. Production began in the 1960's through to the early 1970's. Patterns that were sold by this company and made by Fenton are the Grape pattern, Empress, Sydenham, Sable Arch and Knobby Bull's Eye (reproduction). When the company dissolved in the 1970's, Fenton then created glass bells from several of these patterns, that were produced and sold by Fenton Glass Company in the 1980's.
