ITEM SPOTLIGHT: Fenton Grape Leaf Pattern Pink Milk Glass from the 1950’s

During the 1950’s, Fenton produced many patterns and pieces.  One of the patterns that was produced is called the “Leaf” pattern.  It comes in many colors like white milk glass and pink milk glass to name just a few.

The pattern was made for a couple of years, and one of the pieces that was made in this pattern was this footed decorative plate.  You can tell that it was made by Fenton is the fact that some pieces were marked on the bottom of the plate.  If it's not marked on the bottom, one of the dead giveaways that it's a Fenton piece by the styling of the handle and the edge that's on the plate.

Even though desert, salad, or even Buffalo wings are only a small portion of what you can serve on this plate; it was described by Fenton as a decorative plate, so most likely you will see this item displayed on top of a piano with either candy or potpourri.

You can see the plate in my Etsy shop here.  What kind of interesting pieces of Fenton Art Glass have you seen?
