|Leaf Chain - Fenton|
|This is the same chain motif as Fenton's Cherry Chain, but instead has leaves in place of the cherries. The pattern was made with two different molds; one for the large plates and bowls and one for the small plates and bowls. The two rare examples above are a 9-inch plate in amethyst and a 9-inch ruffled bowl in aqua opal.
Small bowls are about 7 inches across and can be ice cream shaped, round or six ruffled. Small plates are about 7 to 8 inches across. Small bowls and plates have the Berry and Leaf Circles exterior. Both the small plates and bowls are predominantly found in blue and marigold, but other colors are known.
Large bowls are about 8 to 9 inches across and can be ice cream shaped, round or six or eight ruffled. Large plates are about 9 inches across. Large bowls and plates have the Bearded Berry back. Both the large plates and bowls are predominantly found in blue, green, marigold and white, but other colors are known.
