Excellent Antique Pre-Owned Condition. Pickup in Olathe.
This dazzling beauty’s pattern, Fentec, is part of McKee’s collection of “tec” patterns. The “tec” patterns, as they have come to be known, are a line of 18 patterns all named with the suffix “tec”. In 1904, McKee was granted a patent for the Pres-Cut trademark. The trademark was used on pressed glassware that imitated the fine cut glass of the time; Fentec, was the first McKee-designed pattern, predecessors Aztec and Toltec were already in production. Fentec is deeply cut and truly has the look-and-feel of cut glass with its sharp sawtooth rim. Motifs include hobstars, tassels pointed loops and ribbons along with stippled triangles. The dish was introduced as a relish or olive dish, back in the day when such dishes were commonplace on a dinner table. While it can still be used as a relish tray in today’s modern settings, its Hollywood Regency glam-look will look fabulous on a vanity or dresser top as a trinket dish or as a fanciful candy dish. It measures 6¼” x 4¼” x 1½” L/W/H; weight 11 oz.; medium is EAPG; color is clear and luminous; Pres-Cut mark is present in the center of the dish.
