Vasa Murrhina means “vessel of gems” and is a cased glass containing crushed glass flakes incorporated in multiple layers of glass.
This basket is about 7” to the handle top and about 5 ¼” across the basket opening. The crystal glass handle is in the beautiful bamboo style classic to Fenton. Both handle maker’s marks are very clear and easy to see. As you can see in the photo, the interior of the glass basket is white cased glass consistent with the time period.
Fenton’s official description is that Autumn Orange or Gold Aventurine contains “brown and orange colored frit rolled in an opal layer and then cased with a crystal exterior.” This basket was produced 1965-1968.

I have been a dealer of antique and collectable glass for over 10 years locally at vendor malls and online. I have collected far longer than that! I am experienced and identify my items with care. I will describe them to the best of my ability with condition noted. Locally I've had the same customers for years and sell special pieces to other dealers.
Please contact me with any questions or concerns so that I can help! I always accept returns in the event of seller error.
