I purchased this beautiful and very unusual set approximately 40 years ago at a fine antique auction. I had not seen such a set before, nor have I found anything like it since. I have found individual bowls, but never the matched pair with a serving rack.

Made by the Fenton Art Glass Company, both the patterns and the shaping are indicative of that company's lovely design style. The interior pattern of these bows is the Cherry Chain pattern, with the Orange Tree pattern on the exterior. These can be dated to the period between 1907 and 1914, since both the Cherry Chain and Orange Tree patterns originated in 1907, and Cherry Chain, we understand, was discontinued in 1914. The coloring of their iridescent glass has a soft and elegant depth that is representative of their high quality. These pieces are in a very nice satiny light marigold color. The consistency of coloring between these two bowls is remarkable in itself. The seem to be identical in every way.

Each bowl measures 6" across and about 2" high. They have small collar bases that rest in the circular openings of the serving stand. The sides have a ruffled shaping and a sawtooth edge as well.

The metal stand, or server, that holds these two lovely bowls measures about 10" across and stands 5-3/4" tall. I do not know the type of metal. It is not silver, because it does not seem to tarnish. The overall set is very well balanced and the handle has a unique shape, wide enough and shaped in such a way that you can easily hold the handle and pass the piece from person to person with ease. Someone put some thought into the design of this set.

Although these are approximately one hundred years old, they are in exceptionally lovely condition. I have not found any wear or damage. They came from an estate auction of very beautiful, and well cared for things, and I have guarded them during the past 40 years. It is my hope that this set will find a new home where it will be treasured for another 40 years.
