Fenton USA Celebrates
the Skill and Tradition
of the American Glassworker

To celebrate the Labor Day holiday, we would like
to salute our skilled and talented craftsmen at Fenton Art Glass. In this newsletter we will salute
the Basket Handler. Fenton started creating baskets in the late 1930s. Attaching basket handles requires a great deal of skill. There's less than 30 seconds to attach and shape a handle before the glass cools down and is no longer workable.

Nobody does baskets like Fenton Art Glass! The basket shown at right is a Panel Grape Basket, handcrafted in rich Ruby glass, from our Christmas 2010 line.
Click on the basket image for details.

In the 1950s, company President Frank M. Fenton
and his brother Bill Fenton, who was Vice-President, decided that each Fenton basket handler should have a distinctive mark so collectors could identify the artisan who created their basket. These marks are impressed at the base of each side of the handle. Each handler's mark is essentially circular in shape, but the designs within the circle
are quite varied. Some of our handler's marks (past and present) are shown below. If you own a Fenton basket, be sure to look at the handles to help identify the Fenton craftsman who helped create it!
