17, at the Fenton factory. There will be a preview will be at 11am with the auction to begin at noon.
Fenton historian James Measell organized this auction, so we
asked him to tell us more about it. "There is quite a variety,"
Jim said, "from a few older pieces and lots of color samples
from the 1960s to one-of-a-kind items from Dave Fetty or Frank
Workman as well as our cameo carvers, Kelsey Murphy and Robert
Bomkamp. I had a lot of fun preparing the auction listing
because so many items had original stickers on them. This will
be a great auction." View the auction listing and pictures on

color and texture due to the reactive glazing process.

the perfect complement to these luscious mineral tones.
