Fenton Collector Clubs

There are many glass experts across the country who are avid Fenton art glass collectors. Most of these people belong to one of the independent Fenton Collector Clubs. Each club has a newsletter and an annual convention for its members. Joining one or more of these clubs is a great way to learn more about Fenton art glass.

There are three national organizations:

The Fenton Art Glass Collectors of America

The National Fenton Glass Society

The Pacific Northwest Fenton Association

 

We have also a link for the The Fenton Finders of Greater Kansas City.

If your club has a website and would like a link from the Fenton website, contact our On-Line Marketing Manager.
