A gorgeous and very rare hand made bell by Fenton Art Glass' premier off hand artist, Dave Fetty. The bell is 7 inches tall and 3 1/2 inches wide at the base. The glass itself is Ruby glass, over which Favrene glass has been pulled in the Feather pattern, making this exquisite bell.
Dave worked with Ruby Favrene, also just called Red Favrene, in 2005' He made a batch of off hand pieces at that time. Some bells, apples, and a few vases. He has not worked with this combination of glass since, and it is unknown if they will ever make that particular color combination again since Dave is officially retired and doing less and less in the hot metal shop.
This bell has Dave Fetty's stamp at the top of the handle, which is 'DLF Fenton'. This is a first quality piece with no damage or repairs. It has the Fenton 100 years 2005 sticker on it.
