Suncatcher designed by Anne Nye
USA Burmese Vase Internet Special
In 1885, Frederick Shirley, an
Englishman who immigrated to America, patented the formula for an
opaque, heat-sensitive glass. When this glass was "warmed-in," the
color shaded from lemon yellow to salmon pink. As legend has it,
several of Shirley's pieces were presented to Queen Victoria. She
exclaimed that the color reminded her of a Burmese sunset.
Shirley's Mt. Washington Glass Company in New Bedford, MA, adopted
the Burmese name and allowed a well-known British firm, Thomas
Webb & Sons, to make Burmese in that country.
After many trials, in 1969 Fenton
chemist Charles Goe replicated Shirley's Burmese, and it has
become one of the most collectible of Fenton's colors. Burmese
contains pure gold in the formula, and careful reheating coaxes
the delicate pink shading into existence. Throughout the years,
there has been variation in the color of the yellow from a
greenish to a cream hue. Fenton's Burmese reflects the original
Burmese with a creamier yellow base.
Our classic Burmese glass provides
the perfect canvas for a Charleton Roses design by award-winning
Fenton designer Kim Barley. Handpainted as an Internet Special,
this beautiful 8-1/2'' vase also features a smaller rose and blue
florets on the other sides with vining leaves and white dot
accents. Two handpainted gold rings encircle the base of this
elegant piece (images shown below). To learn more about Kim
We have a limited quantity
available, and what better gift for Mother's Day than Fenton's
classic Burmese glass! Kim handpainted all of these vases and her
signature appears on the bottom of each piece.

A talented artist and devoted
Franciscan nun, the art created by Sister Maria Innocentia Hummel
from 1932-1946, is renowned for characteristic simplicity,
celebration of childhood innocence and warm
reflection on human nature. Sister recognized childhood as an
occasion of peace and goodness that must be protected for
each generation. The enduring quality of the art, and the constant
reminder that it is all about the children is an
appeal to the heart that spawned a worldwide legacy now into its
second century. Since 1932 the craftsmen of ARS AG, Switzerland,
have reproduced the sacred art of Sister M. I. Hummel, to be loved
and enjoyed by countless generations.
