    I'm relocated to Florida. All my stuff is in storage. In the meantime, I am staying with my parents until I sell the house up north and buy another here. I figured as time permits, I'd post some of the things my mother has.

    This piece measures 7 3/8" across.

    It was very difficult to capture the color of the glass in natural light, a light greenish yellow.

    Under blacklight is a very different story.

    Fenton called the color Topaz and it's Opalescent. But most folks just call it vaseline opalescent. Very nice.
