Fenton Mulberry Diamond Optic Hand Vase

Now here's a rare one - a large Mulberry Diamond Optic hand vase made by Fenton in 1942. It is an overlay colour which was made by putting blue over gold ruby glass. This colour was discontinued soon after it began due to production problems. Few of these hand vases exist. Purple is also a very unusual hand vase colour. I am lucky to be able to add this one to my collection.

Here it is (below) flanked by two other vases made by Fenton in the 1940's.
