Fenton Diamond & Rib Green Jardiniere
While attending the HOACGA (Heart of America Carnival Glass Association) auction on April 29th, 2017, I was checking out lot #58, the Diamond & Rib green jardiniere from the Christina Katsikas collection. She told me that she purchased at the 2013 Tampa Bay Club auction.
We already have one in marigold and a flared one in purple so this green one would fit in nicely. The bidding was kind of mild on this piece and in no time, it was ours. YAAY!!
The jardiniere is exactly the way it came from the glass mold and was never swung or shaped into the funeral vase that it was meant to be. It weights 4.79 pounds and stands just 6.5" tall.
Christina's photos, shown here, include this jardiniere and the funeral vase it was meant to be by its side for comparison, which I also bought at this same auction.
