Federal Glass utilized Gay Fad Studios for their early hand painted patterns. This cold painted Rose Design is believed to be one of the early Gay Fad designs. This beautiful pink rose is very, very similar to the rose design that Fran Taylor (founder of Gay Fad Studios) is known to have painted on a lamp as a wedding gift for her brother in 1941.
The rose design remains mostly intact on this vase. The 6 1/4" Frosted Glass Vase carries the "F" within the Shield Federal Glass Logo on the bottom of the vase. No chips, nicks, or breaks found.
