Long Thumbprint Vase, Fenton

Pretty much a run-of-the-mill vase pattern. Often found at flea markets and malls, usually in green. Four rows of thumbprints around the trunk. The jack-in-the-pulpit versions are rare, however, and worth picking up when found. Regular versions range in height from about 7 inches to 12 inches. Fenton did a Long Thumbprint Hobnail vase that has hobnails inside of the thumbprints. It is possible that this vase was the precursor for that pattern, and the hobnails were added to relieve the plain pattern.
The vase on the right is not a Long Thumbprint. While similar, there is a difference in the base and only three rows of thumbprints around the vase. Nothing is known about its origin. In amethyst, it sold for $900 in 2003 and for $2,300 in 2007.

The Long Thumbprint vase above (base shown) has an 1899 penny embedded in it-there are very few of them. Someone at the factory had to have added the penny after the vase came out of the mould and was still hot. It does not mean it was manufactured in 1899 – just that that was the date on the penny! This amethyst vase sold in 2011 for $700. Photo courtesy of Wroda Auctions.
