Iridescence of Indigo
In 1907, Fenton Art Glass introduced
an exciting new line of glassware called “Iridescent Ware.″ This
new product featured vivid, changing metallic hues on
highly-patterned pressed glass items. The glass was highly popular
and eagerly sought by collectors. Stories of the glass being used
as prizes in midway games led to it being called “Carnival glass.″
In 1970 Fenton renamed the line “Carnival glass″ and
since been known by that name.
The secret−both in 1907 and today−
is the special spray of metallic salts on the glass while it is
very hot. We continue to make Carnival glass by hand, the
“old-fashioned way,″ and we never cease to marvel at the resulting
rainbow of colors and the interesting hues. The two pieces shown
above, 6-1/4'' Daffodil Bell and the 5'' Bouquet Rose Bowl feature interesting pattern detail.

With sadness, we learned of the passing on April 29 of Sharon Bragg,
of The B & B Shop in Lima, Ohio. Scott Fenton shares his
...“Sharon worked with us for many years and she was one of our most passionate
dealers and collectors. Her meticulous attention to detail
and quality played an important part in our everyday decisions
here at Fenton. She always voiced her opinion for the better of
the company and wasn't afraid to voice criticism as well if she
thought it would help. Many times you could tell she was speaking
not only for herself but for many collectors. We will miss her
support and dedication.”
