If you want one of the best one of these there is, then this piece
should enter your equation.
Yes, it is considered a "killer" investment grade example by us
even though it has 3 very faint "iridized over" thin, line like, tool
indents down in the inside center area of this piece.
They are much fainter then they appear in these photos shown to
the left, in fact, in person, you hardly even take notice of them.
They are from the original making, so they will never be
considered as damage to this sensational showstopper piece.
This is a true Imperial "purple shiner" example with the best
electric purple iridescence we have ever seen.
The photos to the left are completely unmanaged, with the
iridescent colors being just as you see them.
This example is a complete color bath of a myriad of electric
colors throughout the entire inside of this eight ruffle bowl.
The exterior is the standard "Arcs" pattern which is also nicely
iridized; however, the outside iridescence can't hold a candle to
the inside totally electric color show.
You name the color, and you can probably find it somewhere on
It's simply an extraordinary color show throughout!
Other than the 3 faint tool "line-like" indents that are completely
covered with iridescence, the piece has absolutely no other

A "Killer" Investment Grade Red Fenton Holly 8-9 " ruffled bracket edged bowl in mint
|Fenton Holly 8-9" bracket edge ruffled bowl in
beautiful true red! This is a premium "killer
investment grade example from the Poucher
Collection. It's one of the best true red examples
we have seen in a long, long time. Don't miss a
very rare opportunity to own one of the best
Already sold to "Race II" down there in Georgia!
Here is one fabulous Fenton 8-9" bracket edge
ruffled Holly bowl in rare true red. Aside from
having a bright red base glass, it also has a
beautiful satin finish colorful iridescence that
includes reds, yellows, greens and purples. Just
look at the photo to the left and we think you'll
agree, this bowl is simply magnificent.
Moreover, the back side of this beauty has a
wonderful very shiny radium finish iridescence
dominated by red, orange and yellow. It's like
looking into a colored mirror. See the photo of
the back side below, to see one of the best
mirror radium finishes we've seen in a long
time. Our photos were all taken with our old 5.0
megapixel camera, so the photos really don't
show the vivid colors this bowl possesses. It's a
We've owned quite a few of these red Holly
ruffled bowls in our 43+ years of collecting
vintage carnival glass but not many have been
comparable to this undamaged, no issues
"killer" investment grade example. It has
everything it needs to light up your display or to
be your best stand alone piece. It will gain
everyone's attention and certainly bring all the
compliments & adulations you'd expect from
even the most discerning onlookers. It's the
kind of piece that grabs the show!
If there is one thing that would hold this piece
from being called the "perfect" red Fenton
Holly bowl, it would be the slightly lighter coat
of iridescence applied to the inside center area
of the bowl. It's not that the iridescence is void
on the inside center, but rather, it's just not as
intensely apparant as it is on the rest of the
inside surface. See the photo to the immediate
left which depicts this lighter inside center
iridescence. This lighter colored inside center,
is a typical Fenton feature found on the great
majority of Fenton made vintage carnival glass
bowls. This condition is minimized on this
example because the base color of the glass in
the very center area has a yellow-red cast and
its colored background serves to "shore up"
any negative visual effects of the lighter inside
center iridescence. The net result is that the
bowl displays like the true showpiece it was
made to be!
We examined the bowl closely, and can find no
physical damage or obvious manufacturing
issues. It's a clean & colorful "gem" of a bowl
with super display appearance front and back.
It looks sensational in plain natural window
light, display cabinet lighting or even just plain
light bulb lighting. We have shown the piece
just as it appears in plain natural daylight
laying on a plain gray bath towel. All the photos
are unmanaged, just enlarged to help you see
the bowl better. If it looks this fabulous in plain
daylight, you can imagine how it would light up
in your display cabinet or lighted curio. Believe
us, no one would pass by your display venue
without taking notice of its presence.
So, we come to the part of the description
where we turn our attention to what this piece
will cost you to own it. As with any beautiful
piece of rare vintage carnival glass, the
purchase price becomes the bottom line final
consideration. You know, over our many years
of collecting carnival glass, we've found that
people are very unpredictable as to what they
are willing to pay for things in general. For
example, put a $50 pair of shoes in the right
high end store, and by gosh you can sell the
same pair of shoes for $200 or more. Put a
designer name or logo on a piece of apparel
and you can sell it for triple! It is just the way of
life we lead here in America. Marketing peer
In the vintage carnival glass selling business,
however, we found a different set of selling
circumstances. In this business, we find
collectors and dealers alike, search endlessly
for a high quality piece that they can garner for
a better price than the previous buyer paid for
a like piece. Then, you hear them at all the
carnival glass auctions, conventions and shows
bragging about how little they gave for the
piece they purchased. We've heard this
bragging for all the years we gone to such
events. But you know something interesting,
whenever these auctions begin, and the
auctioneer comes right down to selling the
pieces at hand, those same bragging buyers
have to "crap or get off the pot"! You either
beat the high bid or go home empty handed!!
The reality is there and now, with the bragging
about this buy & that buy suddenly taking a
silent back seat.
With this in mind, we are not going to become
some collector's future buying conversation,
where we become his or her victim for their
bragging purposes. This is a very high quality
piece for which we intend to receive a fair
price. If it doesn't sell at this fair price, we'll
keep it for ourselves and pass it on to our
relatives after we're long gone. It's that simple.

Photos of two tumblers that are included in this set

dot of iridescence that got on the top rim. It is from
the original making.

kind of piece... awe-inspiring, magnetic to any
eyes that set upon its material beauty. You could
put a label on it..."The best there is" And we feel
you would not have erred! It is the best!
Many collectors miss the subtle differences in
this pattern, from its cousin pattern "Trout & Fly".
Well, the two main things are the absence of the
fly by the mouth of the fish, and the three
background water flowers instead of just two on
the "Trout & Fly" pattern. Most of all, however, it
is a much rarer pattern to find examples by far!

The tumbler are all matching flared top tpye of
tumblers that match very nicely with the
iridescent coloring on the pitcher. They have no
rim or base damage which is very rare in itself
to find, since they are very thin & dainty glass.
The pitcher, meanwhile is totally undamaged
with not even a fleabite or pinpoint to the top
rim or the base of the pitcher. Moreover, the
iridescent coloring on the pitcher is simply
spectacular and without any missing spots or
faded areas. The attached handle does have two
or three tiny holding tool indentation faint lines
on it, but they are hardly noticeable when the
pitcher is on display. It is just a incredible work
of art, as is the entire water set.
As you know, complete mint condition water
sets in this pattern are very difficult to find
anywhere, and especially so, in the rare base
color green. This is a once in a lifetime water

the country. We will not give this set away for a
As we have said many time before... "You gotta'

With that in mind, and realizing just how rare
this set is in the carnival glass collecting world,
we are pricing the set very fairly at $ 2000.00.
Yes we saw the David Doty prices listed from
$1300 to $2400 for green 7 piece water sets. We
saw the $1300 set sell at auction and can tell
you honestly, 4 tumblers had top rim fleabites
and the pitcher had all sorts of base and top rim
fleabites and pinpoint damage. The set wasn't
even in the same league as this set is!
We did not see the $1800 set which David Doty
lists as selling back in year 1995 or the $2400
set he lists as selling back in year 2008, but they
were probably not mint condition either.
To find a set such as this is a once in a lifetime

You won't find a set like this at any carnival glass

down within their family. This is a old set from our 1981
Colleywood Private Collection, and we are telling you, it
is the best we've ever collected in 44+ years! You can
take that to the bank!
All tumblers are signed, and they all look like the day
they were made! No damage on any of them! Super
iridescent coloring in the super sheen finish. They
even are inside iridized in radium finish mirror
iridescence! Incredible! One tumbler, as shown, has a
couple of tiny color spots, which are from the original
making. So, what!!!! In the photos to the left, it is the
middle tumbler of the left row of the tumblers. As you
can see they are tiny color spots. Harmless! That's just
part of vintage carnival glass. The character of the set.
No chips, no nicks, no pinpoints, no fleabites, no heat
checks, no iridescent cooling lines, no big enclosed
bubbles, no missing iridescence, no epoxy glue
present, no repairs, no "nothin"!
You have to remember: "You gotta pay for the very
best".... and that is exactly what you are looking at with
this set. THE BEST WE'VE EVER COLLECTED IN 44+
