Pure gold in the
formula creates the
soft pink blush. Fenton’s Blue Burmese began in the
1980s when President
Frank M. Fenton worked closely with
chemists to recapture famous heat-sensitive art glass colors of
the late 19th century. Blue Burmese shares a close kinship with an
opaque, heat-sensitive pink/blue color made by the
Mt. Washington Glass Company of New Bedford, Massachussetts, in
1886. The inventor was Frederick Shirley, and the company designed
paper labels featuring two different names, “Peach Skin” and
“Peach Blow.” For our 1984 Connoisseur Collection, Fenton produced
a three-piece covered candy box in the ogee style. The color,
described in our catalog as “pale blue struck with dusty pink
highlights,” was called Blue Burmese. The color and soft satin
finish are remarkably similar to the Mt. Washington Peach Blow
made nearly a century earlier.
Collectors just can't get enough of the Blue Burmese color. Like
the Peach Blow of the 1880s, Fenton’s Blue Burmese could be called
a “craze”! It has since become one of the most collectible

. . from Fenton International
Golden Stripe is a new glass line from Fenton International for
2008. Each shape is both attractive and functional. A flowing
ribbon of gold glass splits a snowy surface that can only be made
by hand. Sleek silhouettes for the contemporary home, the Golden
Stripe line includes a footed bowl and four vases.
For more than a century, Fenton
has been known for its expertise as producers of fine quality
handcrafted glass in color. The introduction of colored glass
designs into Fenton International is a response to requests from
many dealers to use our
expertise to become
the premier supplier of colored glass from around the world, as
well as from America. Each piece will bear the Fenton
International Logo (shown in photo above), and the production has
been personally checked by a member of the Fenton staff. We will
continue to produce fine collectible glass in America under the
Fenton USA brand for our large contingent of Fenton collectors.

Try Our Tranquil Sea on Indigo Blue!
Designer Kim Barley
describes herself as a “person who loves the water,” and her
fondness for representing nature with a fanciful touch can be seen
in her handpainted Tranquil Sea decoration on Indigo Blue. Blue
and Gold tones blend beautifully, and the “bubbles” add a note of
whimsy. This collection also includes a Candy Box (42903U)
and a 13" Vase (16993U),
which are not shown here.
Our Indigo Blue is made with a unique combination of copper oxide
and cobalt oxide. The result is a deep blue with the look of
nature. There are more than 60 “blues” in Fenton's hundred-plus
years of history, and just naming them all would more than fill
this space! We’re delighted with this addition to the Fenton
