Thistles were apparently a great pattern to show off iridescence, because Fenton actually used 3 totally different molds on three unique shapes (see closeup-fthistle). The cuspidor was discovered in about 2012 and Carnival 101 has a clip from the Butler Bros Catalog of 1912 (see bb-fspittoon) showing the exact shape and listed as ‘Iridescent Glass Cuspidor'. Why this is the first one to surface is a mystery.
