Fenton USA Presents. . . Fluttering Floral on Lavender

Our new Lavender
color for 2010 features a Fluttering Floral on Lavender motif by Fenton designer Michelle Kibbe. You can see why we called the floral design Fluttering, as the handpainted flower petals resemble delicate butterfly wings fluttering in the breeze!


Lavender contains neodymium, so your pieces will be different colors under various lighting conditions.
This characteristic
is called dichroic, and it makes this special color a great conversation topic!

Violet glass shines like a jewel and remains a home decor staple. This warm color emits high energy when displayed in natural light or warm synthetic light. Compared to the other colors we produce, Violet tends to cool more quickly, and our skilled glassworkers adjust to this characteristic by changing their pace as needed during production.


Coordinate Violet with our new Lavender pieces and your display will be simply stunning! This new 2010 grouping from Fenton USA includes the items shown:
a 6-1/2'' Vase, a 4'' Notched Rib Candy Box, a 4'' Horse figurine, and our 5" Lucere Comport. Click on each image for details or, to view more new items from Fenton USA, click here. To locate a Fenton dealer near you, click here.


The Fenton Logo in our Glass . . . A Bit of History

Moulds are important assets in any glass factory, and especially at Fenton,
where we make glass the old fashioned way―by hand―using tools and techniques essentially unchanged from those of centuries ago. Our storage areas contain more than 11,000 cast iron moulds, most of which were made by skilled mouldmakers
in our own mould shop since we started glass production in January 1907.

Over the years, Fenton has acquired a number of historic moulds that originated at other glass companies. In the 1930s, we obtained a few moulds from the Diamond Glass-Ware Co. of Indiana, Pa., after that plant had been destroyed b
y fire.
In the 1950s, we bought moulds from the Paden City Glass Manufacturing Co., and a mould for a bird figurine became our popular 5197 Happiness Bird. In the 1960s, we purchased
quite a few moulds from two firms that ceased business―
Verlys of America and the United States Glass Co. Many
Verlys moulds have been used in the Fenton line.


Our popular 5177 Alley Cat debuted in the 1920s at U. S. Glass, where it was called Sassy Susie. When we began to mark
Fenton-made glass with the oval Fenton logo in the 1970s,
the now-familiar oval logo was put into Fenton moulds
as well as those that had originated elsewhere.

In the 1980s, we acquired moulds from the former McKee Glass Co. and during the liquidation of the Imperial Glass Corp., so we decided to denote glass made with these moulds with a distinctive, but different logo: a script F within a vertical oval. Some years later, when moulds were acquired from The Beaumont Company, the L. G. Wright Glass Co., and some other sources, this same practice was followed. A small “8” designates glass made in the 1980s, and a small “9” designates the 1990s. From 2000 through 2009, we used a small “0”. We began to use a small “1” in 2010, and this will continue through 2019. We take great pride in being able to revive historic glass patterns and items from the past that originated at
great glass factories no longer with us.


Within the past few years, we've added “USA” close to the logo on all of our
moulds, both those originating at Fenton and those from other American glass companies. The “USA” characters appear only on glass made at the historic
Fenton factory in Williamstown, West Virginia.
