Today’s Museum Monday treasure from the Museum of American Glass in WV is a pair of vases in Favrene, made by Fenton in 1986 in limited editions for Carol Wood of Carol’s Antiques and Art. The designs are based on sketches from Paul Mollon, especially commissioned by Carol Wood. The first vase is called The Frolic and is accompanied by a copy of the drawing, signed by Paul Mollon. Our vase is number 8 of 75 and is 8 inches high.

The second vase is entitled Howling Wolf and is 12 inches high. Both vases are signed on the bottom “Paul Mollon” and “Carol Wood” and marked “FENTON / Carol’s Gallery / 8/75.”
