The base glass color is our rich Aubergine, and the iridescence on the interior has a splendid matt quality with gold tones and purple highlights. The mould used to make this basket originated at Imperial Glass in Bellaire, Ohio, about 1910. Many collectors call this pattern American Beauty Rose.

Fenton USA Presents. . . Colorful Carnival Glass


In 1907, the fledgling Fenton Art Glass Company entered the marketplace with a new line of glassware called "Iridescent Ware." This new glass featured vivid, ever-changing metallic hues on highly-patterned pressed glass articles. Popular from 1908 to about
1914, Fenton's "Iridescent Ware" enjoyed great success. Shown at right is the No. 1124 Butterfly and Berry Pitcher and Tumbler in Marigold Carnival, circa 1910. By the 1950s, this glassware was eagerly sought after by American glass collectors. Stories abound
that the glass was used for midway game prizes
and the phrase "Carnival glass" was coined.

 

When Fenton resumed production of their iridescent glass in 1970, it was decided
to rename it "Carnival glass," and it has been called that ever since. The secret of Fenton's Carnival glass is a special spray of metallic salts on different base glass colors while it is very hot. Using today's technology, Fenton's glass chemists have rediscovered the striking vivid effects of some of the first sprays used in 1907.
We continue to make our Carnival glass by hand, the old-fashioned way. We
never cease to marvel at the rainbow of
colors of this beautiful glass.

 

We regard
the enthusiasm of today's collectors
as a great tribute to our company founder
Frank L.
Fenton, who first ventured into the marketplace with "Iridescent Ware" more than a
century ago
.

 

As we celebrate 105 years of business
in 2010, we offer several new pieces in Marigold Carnival. Shown here are
four of our new items: a Rosebowl,
a Grape Vase,
a Grape Leaf Bowl and a Foot
ed
Drape and Tie Bowl
(shown below).
