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
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 by
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
Verlys of America and the United States Glass Co.
Verlys moulds have been used in the Fenton line.
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 now-familiar oval logo was put into Fenton
as well as those
that had originated elsewhere.
In the 1980s, we acquired moulds
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
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.
