Pearly Dots, Westmoreland

[column-third-1][/column-third-1][column-third-2][/column-third-2][column-third-3][/column-third-3]

There is considerable dispute over Fenton's Coin Dot pattern and Westmoreland's Pearly Dots. For many years collectors considered those items with plain dots to be this pattern–Pearly Dots, while those with stippled dots to be Fenton's Coin Dot. It now seems that Fenton also made some of it's Coin Dot pieces with plain dots. In any event, the origin of manufacture makes little difference in the value of the piece. The amethyst plate, above left, was photographed at a 2000 Heart of America Carnival Glass club display. The ruffled bowl in blue opal (above center) sold in 1993 for $145. The Pearly Dots rosebowl (above right) is in aqua and sold at a 1996 auction for $275. One listed as purple sold in 2013 for $45.

Compotes are usually taller and less flared than this great blue opal example (courtesy of Dick and Sherry Betker). They are also sometimes misidentified as Fenton's Inverted Coin Dot.
