|Waterlily and Cattails - Dugan, Fenton & Northwood|
|Both Fenton and Northwood produced pieces in the Waterlily and Cattails pattern, although Northwood's was limited to pitchers and tumblers (Dugan also produced a few pitchers and tumblers). In the left photo above, the Northwood pitcher, cone shaped, is on the left, next to a typical Fenton bowl-shaped pitcher. The tumblers have more subtle differences; the Northwood example above, on the left, has short horizontal lines just above the base while the Fenton version, on the right, has a small basketweave pattern near the base. Dugan tumblers have no pattern near the base. Any color other than marigold is rare as are spittoons making this blue tumbler a scarce item.|
|Table sets (Fenton of course) and their component pieces are quite hard to find in Waterlily and Cattails.
The whimsey shape in the center is often called a vase or a toothpick holder--but as it's 3 inches tall it's a bit small for a vase and a bit tall for a toothpick holder. Maybe it was intended for a match holder. They show up fairly often however.
Notice the unusually tall vase/match holder in the far right photo. Photo courtesy of Wroda Auctions.

It's rare to see any bowl in Fenton's Waterlily and Cattails pattern, but the one in the center is green, especially unusual for this pattern, courtesy of Arvin and Betty Wolfgram.
