(above left:) Fenton Folk Art Rooster Box, #4680 NA, YOP:
1996. This is the first Fenton Rooster Box painted in the Folk Art
motif, although other 4680 Rooster Boxes were painted prior to
1996. Hand-Painted and airbrushed on an Ivory base, with hand
rubbed guilding (gold) as the finish for this Folk Art Collection piece.
(above right:) Fenton Folk Art Hen on Nest, #5186 NH, YOP:
1996. 5" Hen on Nest painted in the 1996 Folk Art motif, as a
companion to the Rooster Box of that same year. Like the
rooster box this hen on nest is hand-Painted and airbrushed on
an Ivory base with hand rubbed guilding (gold) the finish.
Stacy Williams' Bleu Chateau design is similar to Kim Barley's
Blue Toile motif used for the previous year on the same mould &
both are considered French Country. Subtle but visible
differences between the two designs include-the Bleu Chateau
motif which features a beautiful design centered on each side
painted with shades of blue and yellow on Ivory satin glass,
but with less blue on this tail than the Blue Toile design has.
The Blue Toile design features blue on ivory with fine, curled
trailers accenting small floral bunches, over most of the rooster,
with no yellow to the color palette, and with more blue on the
rooster's head and his tail.
The Bleu Chateau motif features a beautiful design using blue
and yellow on Ivory satin but with less blue on the rooster's tail
than the Blue Toile design has. The Bleu Chateau design also
has painted fringe accenting the cowl, with more unpainted
ivory left showing on the face.
NOTE: The 4.5" rooster box mould purchased at L.G.
Wright's going out of business sale was immediately popular
with Fenton collectors. To date this rooster box mould has
only been produced in-line by Fenton decorated with painted
Fenton 8-1/2" Standing Rooster, ware 5257 FV,
YOP: 1998. This ivory rooster has been decorated
with the 1998 Folk Art Animals motif, designed by
Robin Spindler to feature soft country shades of rose,
rust, sage painted on the ivory glass rooster.
Fenton Rooster Box, #6483 DD, YOP: 2005. This
4 1/2" Fenton Rooster Box features an Ivory Satin
rooster top decorated with Stacy Williams' beautiful
Bleu Chateau motif on a Cobalt Satin base.
