Fenton USA Presents. . . Mary Gregory Pitchers
For outstanding examples of one of
our most popular decorating styles, look no further!
The Mary Gregory style of painting
appeared more than 100 years
ago as "Painted Cameo," and only the skilled artisans of Fenton
continue this challenging decorating style. "Mary Gregory" describes glassware
that has been painted with white enamel, resulting in raised
details to create a splendid image. One of our designers likened it to
"painting with marshmallow cream." The pitcher mould originated at the
Fostoria Glass Co., in Moundsville, West Virginia about 70 years
ago. Fenton acquired it from Indiana Glass, and we used it
in 2007 to create the "Four Seasons" Mary Gregory Pitchers.
Shown above are the Fall "Helping
Daddy" Pitcher in Ruby with a Frances Burton design and the "New
Friend" Pitcher in Cobalt Blue with a design by Stacy
Williams. Quantities are limited!

Ruby from Fenton International. . .
tableware manufacturers in the 1880 used the words "Gold Ruby" to
describe a unique glass color that could only be made as blown
ware. Pure gold dissolved in a mixture of two strong acids created
a liquid which was then added to the dry raw materials of a glass
batch (silica sand, soda ash, and lime). The resulting rich, red
glass is still a favorite among collectors today.
Our Gold Ruby collection from Fenton
International includes 14 original shapes ranging from bowls
and baskets to pitchers and vases.
Quality is a top priority, and we worked closely with an
experienced glass manufacturer in China to create these
distinctive, attractive items for the Gold Ruby line.
