|April Showers vases - Fenton|
|April Showers vases are found in only one base diameter, 3 1/2 inches, with a plain base. Heights vary from about 6 inches to about 13 inches. Fenton's Peacock Tail pattern is seen on the interior of most, but not all. Tops can be ruffled into a variety of shapes, including the tightly crimped shape on the right of the group photo. Note the scallops where the pattern meets the base as shown in the close up center photo.
Colors found include amethyst, amethyst opal, aqua, blue, green, ice blue, lime green, marigold, red, teal, and vaseline.
This pattern is often confused with the similar Fenton Rustic which has regularly spaced hobs, Fenton's Knotted Beads which has small hobs within circular or oval panels, and Northwood's Tree Trunk which has crescent-shaped lines around the hobs.
The photo to the far right shows a 4 1/2 inch tall squatty vase. An extremely short version, but it shows the unswung pattern very well. In addition, you can see the interior's peacock tail pattern.
