|Peacock Tail - Fenton|
|Peacock Tail is found in a variety of bowl shapes and colors as well as two handled bonbons (both stemmed and collar base), compotes, hats, an occasional plate and a very rare breakfast set. Red bowls (above left) seem only to be found in 6-7 inch ice cream shapes and always bring exceptional prices. The amethyst square ruffled and crimped bowl is very rare. It measures 7 1/2 inches across (9 1/2 on its longest dimension) and is courtesy of Gale Eichhorst. On the right a typical tricorner bowl or plate--except that this one has some opalescence around the edge. Courtesy of Galen and Kathi Johnson.|
|The first two photos on the left show the two variations of the two handled bonbons. The marigold bonbon has a collar base while the amethyst one is stemmed and has an eight sided base.
Peacock Tail hats are mostly found in green but blue and marigold are also known. These have an octagonal base that is factory ground. Hats are bout 6 1/2 inches across at the longest point and are about 3 inches tall. Hats were sometimes used to make advertising pieces. These advertising hats are always found in green.
|On the left is a typical stemmed compote with a round base. This one is in green.
The two photos to the right show a rare Peacock Tail creamer in marigold. It is about 3 1/4 inches tall and has a 1 7/8 inch collar base. There is a photo of a green open sugar in Peacock Tail on Hooked On Carnival. The creamer and the open sugar would form a very rare breakfast set.
