The 7" bowl no. 1427 in French Opalescent with a double crimp ruffle was made from 1947 to 1953.
Blue Dogwood on Cameo Satin, rare 5 petal mistake.
The five petaled blue dogwood was a Fenton mistake only produced for a few days in January 1980. As the story goes, a decorator had painted a lovely arrangement of blue flowers. This design did not have a name and someone who didn't know much about flowers called it "blue dogwood". It wasn't until after the catalogs were printed and production began that it was realized that this was not a dogwood flower, it had five petals. Some items did manage to make it out of the factory. Fenton then changed the decoration to a blue dogwood flower with four petals. The original line consisted of 20 items. I have 7 of the items shown here.
