Fenton Shell Pink Carnival Glass
Another new 1980s colour from Fenton was their Shell Pink Carnival, introduced in 1988-89.
It was described as "soft opal glass with a pearl finish" - items were given the colour code "PE" to denote the Shell Pink Carnival colour. The "Hearts and Flowers" reference in the ad shown below (in the #0350 Assortment) refers to a hand-painted decoration (of hearts and flowers, naturally) that was being applied to their opalescent lines. A variation of Shell Pink, introduced in the early 1990s, was called "Pearly Sentiments" (colour code PT) - it was Shell Pink with the addition of applied porcelain roses.
