Bunny Rabbit Figurine in VERY RARE Plum French Opalescent finish This is a solid pour (blown) art glass piece. This Bunny has a PERFECTLY placed bubble (from the hand blown, moulding process) in the right ear. The right ear is sticking up. See the bubble approximately half way, down from the tip of the ear.
Some people MIGHT consider this is a FLAW... However, THIS SHOULD NOT be considered a flaw.. This is PART of the Handblown, Hand moulded process in Art Glass production. I actually LOVE the way it was formed. I think it ADDS to the bunny!I have noticed that the Plum French Opalescent finish does produce these types of "bubbles" more often. Then in other French Opalescent color combinations.. I have seen other Plum French Opalescent Pieces Vases, etc.
Not JUST this bunny figurine listed with similar "bubbles". BUT unfortunately NOT so perfectly placed. It's YOUR DECISION & CHOICE.. The rich Purple Plum tones, mix in with the White French Opalescent. Creating VARIATIONS from deep purple plum, to a light lavender.Giving each of these sitting Bunny Rabbit creations a uniqueness all their own.. This piece "fades" to the French Opalescent Milky White on the tip of the right ear.. Accented by the "BUBBLE", mid ear... The simplicity of design with this Bunny figurine has a very contemporary feel.. Perfect for a MODERN Decor, as well as, a more traditional look.
This was NOT a piece offered to Authorized Dealers through the regular line and catalog. Low production gives this piece a "HARD-TO FIND" status. The "Sitting Bunny" Rabbit mould # 5162 is a VERY POPULAR style among collectors. PICTURED IS the actual piece you will receive!!
An Oval, with script Fenton Logo, is embossed into the mould for this piece. It is located just above the haunch on the left side of the figurine. This bunny measures 3 1/4'' tall, 3" long, nose to tail, and 2 1/4" wide, at widest point (haunches).NO chips, NO flaws SEE ABOVE CLARIFICATION STATEMENT , NO chips, NO breaks, NO flea bites, perfect condition!!! A great way to start someone collecting Fenton glass, a handcrafted, made in America bunny figurine! FENTON ART GLASS MADE IN THE USA. The Fenton Art Glass Company was founded in 1905 by Frank L.
Fenton and his brother John W. Fenton in an old glass factory building in Martins Ferry, Ohio. They began by painting decorations on glass blanks made by other glass manufacturers. Soon, being unable to get the glass they needed, they decided to produce their own glass. The first glass from the new Fenton factory in Williamstown, West Virginia, was made on January 2, 1907.During its 106-year history, Fenton introduced the first iridescent ware (now known as "Carnival glass") as well as classic patterns such as Hobnail, Burmese and a wide variety of handmade colored art glass as limited editions. Sadly, on July 6, 2011, the Fenton Art Glass Company announced that it would cease production of its collectible and giftware glass products. The company had faced financial challenges since its restructuring in 2007, and recent developments combined to force the shutdown of its traditional glassmaking business.
