I WAS A FENTON GOLD SHOWCASE DEALER AND SINCE FENTON HAS CLOSED IT'S DOORS AND I STILL HAVE QUITE A BIT OF INVENTORY, I WILL BE AUCTIONING SOME ITEMS AT CLOSE TO WHOLESALE PRICES SO CHECK BACK OFTEN.... THIS IS A VERY RARE LAMP DUE TO THE FACT THAT THE FLOWERS HAVE 5 PETALS INSTEAD OF 4.... In this design may lie the proof that the decorators in the Art Department were not Botanists!
Blue Dogwood on Cameo had been in production, with countless items painted, for several weeks before it was discovered that the flower used in the design had five petals, not the four of the regular Dogwood. However, in the designer's defense, according to Frank Fenton, the sales department named the design and then the decorators had to change the design to match the name.
Regardless, the design was quickly changed to the regular Dogwood Flower, leaving the items produced beforehand quite rare and desirable to own. In an interesting side note, I have seen advertising postcards for Blue Dogwood (and the 1980 Fenton Catalogue) picturing the design with the 5 petal flower boldly imprinted upon the pictured items. ONLY AVAILABLE IN JANUARY OF 1980. PART OF THE BLUE DOGWOOD ON CAMEO SATIN COLLECTION...THE SHADE IS THE BASKET WEAVE EMBOSSED PATTERN. I HAVE GOTTEN TO ENJOY THIS LAMP SO NOW SOMEONE ELSE GETS THAT PLEASURE... THE SHADE IS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION EXCEPT FOR A FEW NICKS WHERE THE SHADE FITS INTO THE BASE (THIS IS PRETTY NORMAL FOR A LAMP OF THIS AGE AND SOMETIMES EVEN NEW LAMPS).....
THE HARDWARE DOES SHOW IT'S AGE IN SOME PLACES.... I TRIED TO PHOTOGRAPH THE HARDWARE AS BEST I COULD SO YOU COULD SEE THE BLEMISHES.... PLEASE BE SURE TO LOOK AT ALL PHOTOS. UP FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION IS THIS BEAUTIFUL FENTON "20 INCH STUDENT LAMP", #9305BD....THIS GORGEOUS LAMP IS HANDPAINTED WITH A LOVELY BLUE DOGWOOD FLORAL MOTIF AND THE SHADE IS THE EMBOSSED PATTERN "BASKET WEAVE".. THIS STUNNING LAMP IS IN EXCELLENT GENTLY LOVED CONDITION AND IS SIGNED. I DON'T HAVE THE ORIGINAL BOX, BUT WE PACK OUR GLASS VERY WELL...
