Mayonnaise Sets, Nut Sets & Salts - Fenton mayonnaise dishes have a flat rim and the ladles are iridized. The same mold was used to make the master nut dishes (see below) which have rounded, flared rims. The #923 comes in plain and with a Laurel Leaf decoration. The individual salts are made from the individual nut dishes being wide flared.

Parfaits are footed dishes (#574) which are commonly called compotes and even crimped vases. Fenton's #574 parfait comes in two forms, one raised up and the other more widely flared. The same mold was used to make a candy jar and several other vase shapes.

Sherbets - Fenton's sherbets are often confused with those made by Diamond. Fenton's products usually have a more flared top and there are differences in the size of the ring on the bottom of the cup. Fenton also made two types of sherbet plates, one with a central ring and one with an offset ring, both of which have ground bases.

Baskets - Fenton's stretch glass baskets have attached handles rather than applied or molded handles. Most have the diamond optic pattern and come in two sized, one with a 3 1/2-inch base and the larger ones with 3 3/4-inch bases. A rare #1620 "Plymouth" pattern basket is known in Persian Pearl.

Pen Holders are what Fenton called these little footed cups. Most collectors consider them toothpick holders today! They are always desirable items, for carnival as well as iridescent stretch glass collectors!

Flower Pots come in two different sizes and they all have rough surface holes in the bottoms. Apparently a peg was placed in the mold which makes an indentation where the hole is located, but the remaining glass has to be punched out after finishing and cooling. These pots also should come with a pot plate which may have a snap base or ground base.

Smoking Items made by Fenton consist of two types of cigarette holders (rectangular and round), a cigarette box (often with acid etch or cut decoration), and an ash tray which should have four little inserts.
