This Fenton cobalt cat is about 3.75" high x 3" long x 2.5" wide with a ground base. It has a Fenton mark on the back which has a mold flaw that obscures the center of the mark. I think I can just make out an "8" for 1980s at the bottom of the mark. I do not see much Fenton glass that has a ground base, since most of their glass was molded. I believe that ground bottom shows that this is a factory second, possibly due to the muddy Fenton mark. Thrift shop find for $1.00 today.
I went to three thrift shops and spent about $20 which netted me a surprisingly large pile of neat stuff I do not need. Two DVDs, were part of the haul, first was the complete set of the Kolchak: The Night Stalker TV series, which I think I already have somewhere, but for $1.99 it was a good insurance policy. The other was The Beiderbeck Affair, a 1980s English amateur detective series which I have never heard of. Also another Kosta Boda snowball candle holder and a pretty old Scovill oil lamp. I definitely don't need any more oil lamps but this one is really fancy molded glass and only cost $5 with its original Queen Anne No. 2 burner. Also four new boxes of Crayola crayons. I have put together a little chest of American made writing/drawing supplies, just because, No . 2 pencils, Pearl erasers, etc., chalk. crayons, etc., in case China puts some of these old American companies out of business. The chalk is actually real Hagoromo chalk which is no longer made.
