Rare Fenton Art Glass Burmese Bear on a Font
This rare piece of Fenton Art Glass is a bear figurine which has not been cut off the font. Figurines are produced with this font during the molding process and then it is cut off. They never usually leave the factory on the font.
The glass color of this piece is also special in that it's Burmese glass, which is custard glass having real gold in the formula. The glass goes thru a special reheating process to bring out the pink 'blush' that is produced. This bear has a very nice all over blush to it which is very desirable. Fenton worked many years to come up with the Burmese formula for molded pieces such as this bear.
Besides all that, he's just adorable! He stands 6 1/2 inches tall and is in excellent condition with no damage, defects or repairs.
