Proclamation

by Governor Joe Manchin III


Click here to view actual proclamation Acrobat Reader Required

Whereas,

this year marks the 100th anniversary of the Fenton Art Glass Company and its rich tradition of heirloom quality American craftsmanship; and,

Whereas,

three generations, ages ranging from 30 to 89, work together in this family-owned business, keeping the age old art of glassmaking and the small town of Williamstown alive and thriving; and,

Whereas,

throughout its history, Fenton has been a leader in the art glass industry - its "iridescent," first marketed in 1907, is now known as "carnival glass" and is a popular collectible today; and,

Whereas,

focusing on the quality and artistry of the products, Fenton sculptors, designers and artists work together to craft unique, meticulous designs often requiring more than 20 glass craftsmen to produce a single piece; and,

Whereas,

the beginning of America's glass industry can be traced back to West Virginia and Fenton, which is one of the few surviving companies still in operation; and,

Whereas,

USA Today has ranked Fenton as one of the Top 10 factory tours in the nation on several different occasions;


Now, Therefore, Be it Resolved that I, Joe Manchin III, Governor of the State of West Virginia, do hereby proclaim May 4, 2005, as the:

100th Anniversary

of

Fenton Art Glass

in the Mountain State and encourage all citizens to join me in recognizing this observance.

In Witness Whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the Great Seal of the State of West Virginia to be affixed.

Done at the Capitol, City of Charleston, State of West Virginia, this the Fourth day of May, in the year of our Lord, Two Thousand Five, and in the One Hundred Forty-second year of the State.

Joe Manchin III

Governor
