About Butterfly and Berry

This pattern consists of vertical, alternating panels topped with a prickley vine – one panel has a stylized butterfly with wide spread wings and horizontal stripes covering the body, the next panel has a hanging bunch of berries and leaves. It was introduced in the mid-Spring 1911 Butler Bros Catalog and was advertised thru 1924.

Fenton made Butterfly & Berry in both an amazing number of shapes and colors. Butterfly & Berry is the exterior pattern for the Fantail, Hearts & Trees and Panther bowls.There are also some interesting whimsies and variants in the Butterfly and Berry pattern.

NOTE:The pattern has been reissued by Fenton (some for LeVay) and faked large bowls (imported by A&A Imports).

The reported shapes include:
