FENTON ART GLASS CONTINUES SELLING INVENTORY OF TRADITIONAL GLASS AS IT DEVELOPS JEWELRY AND BEAD LINES
(Williamstown, WV, February 15, 2012). Fenton Art Glass continues to sell its remaining inventory of collectible and giftware glass, including many limited and unique items as well as special decorated pieces by award winning designer J. K. (Robin) Spindler. In addition, a team of eight employees is making beads and Teardrop earrings for sale through our web site and to retailers across the country.

The Fenton Gift Shop remains open with lots to sell and many special prices. The Gift Shop is looking forward to welcoming visitors during Customer Appreciation Weekend (April 20-22) and during the two Fenton collector conventions in late July. Although our traditional glassmaking operation has been discontinued, there is a lot to see at our location in Williamstown. The Fenton Gift Shop is open seven days per week,
and our talented staff of beadmakers and decorators can be seen Monday-Friday in a newly-renovated area. They are creating a wide variety of beads and Teardrop earrings in unique glass colors, and Fenton is the sole beadmaker offering handpainted beads. Jena Blair designs most of the beads, and Truda Mendenhall creates the handpainted decorations.
Fenton is also planning two auctions of glass and memorabilia to take place at Randy Clark’s Dexter City Auction Gallery on April 21 and July 28. Go to the website www.randyclarkauctions.com for more information as it becomes available.
The outlet store in Flatwoods, West Virginia, has been closed.
Founded as a decorating company in Martins Ferry, Ohio, in May 1905 by brothers Frank L. Fenton and John W. Fenton, the Fenton Art Glass Co. constructed its factory in Williamstown during the fall of 1906. The first glass pieces were made on January 2, 1907. During its 106-year history, Fenton introduced the first iridescent ware (now known as "Carnival glass") as well as classic patterns such as Hobnail and a wide variety of handmade colored art glass as limited editions. The company has faced financial challenges since its restructuring in 2007, and recent developments combined to force the shutdown of its traditional glassmaking business.
Once again, we are most appreciative for all the support we have received from our friends.
George W. Fenton, President
