This romantic Jack in the Pulpit vase from Fenton reveals two of its innovative motifs: the “coin dot” and the ruffle. The ruffle, seen at the edge of the vase, was born in the 1930s and became the motif that makes Fenton instantly recognizable was born. This hallmark set Fenton apart in the art glass world, as only a highly skilled craftsman can spin an edge of molten color on a piece. The “coin dots” are clear spots among the opaque color. This vase has a "Silver Crest" ruffle. The creation of the company's “Crest” lines occurred during the 1940s. Opaque glass formed the body of such items, while a clear or colored border was added around the ruffled edge. Clear ruffled edges were called “Silver Crest,” bright green borders were called “Emerald Crest,” opaque white was “Snow Crest” and black was “Ebony Crest.”
