A bird of happiness figurine by the Fenton Art Glass Company in a deep plum color with a matte finish. Plum glass was discovered accidentally by Fenton when they were working with cranberry glass. It's the same formula, using real gold, but with a different reheating method. It was Frank Fenton's favorite glass color.
Most plum pieces were special orders and fewer were made. This bird was a special order for the National Fenton Glass Society, a glass collector club. Their logo is in the shape of a happiness bird and can be seen faintly etched at the base of this piece.
This little guy is 5 1/4 inches tall and in excellent condition with no damage, defects or repairs.
