Here we have, a beautiful, Fenton, purple slag glass large basket, in their Orange Tree & Cherries pattern. The exterior has the Orange Tree pattern, and the interior has the Cherry Chain Variant pattern. Both patterns were made in old carnival glass, and were sometimes used together like this. In carnival glass this would be called Cherry Chain Variant, seeing that the pattern was in the interior of the piece. The variant is due to the number of Cherries on each section of Cherries having six in each section. This is in excellent condition, with no chips, cracks, or repairs. Very nice, dark purple, and white glass swirled together. It has light purple streaks where the white and purple mixed together. Even the handle has the slag effect, as you can see in the photos. It measures 10 1/2" wide, 9 1/4" high at the handle, and has a 3 7/8" base. It is marked on the base with the Fenton logo, and the # 8, making is made in the 1980's. Very hard to find color, and also in a large basket. Great for a slag glass collection, basket collection or a Fenton collection!
