This Fenton pattern was introduced in 1970 and quickly became a brisk seller.

Originally this particular type of glass was developed in 1885 by the Mt. Washington glass Company. Queen Victoria named the glass "Burmese" because the beautiful blend of colors reminded her of sunset in Burma.

This is an older ( 1970's ) ruffle top basket in excellent condition. It is approximately 8 1/2" tall with the handle, 7" in diameter and 4" tall without the handle.

It has the beautiful Roses design. It is signed on the bottom "hand Painted J. Wilson."
