This is a magnificent handcrafted apple in plum opalescent glass. Fenton is the company that created plum opalescent and this apple was sold to me as Fenton, but there is no mark or signature, so I can't be sure. The base doesn't look like Fenton, so it may have been crafted by a glass studio that purchased post production glass from Fenton. At any rate it is extremely rare as I've never seen another one.
The deep purple color on the top of the piece meets the opalescent inspired berry color at the base in a vision of plum beauty. It measures 5 inches high to the top of the stem and is 4 inches wide. The glass has a whitish matte hue under and near the stem, where the base of the applied stem is also indented, but not chipped.
