The carnival glass of interest to most collectors is a iridized pressed glass that was produced from shortly after the turn of the century into the late 1920's. Starting in 1907, the Fenton Art Glass Company became the first company to produce this type of glass and became one of the leading producers.
This lovely scalloped compote on standard in the "Peacock and Urn" pattern was first produced in 1915. It measures 6" across; 5" in height. The marigold, ruffled top rests on a clear glass stem and round base. The interior motif consists of a peacock standing in front of an urn surrounded by blossoms and foliage radiating around the bowl. The exterior is a plain smooth finish. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; near mint. Wonderful fenton pattern.
