Fenton USA Presents. . . The Beauty of Burmese!
There are just 14 of these
beautiful Dome Shade Lamps available as an Internet Special!
Handcrafted in Fenton's classic Burmese glass, the dome-shaped
shade provides the perfect canvas for this lovely handpainted
lakeside scene. The pink blush of Burmese gives the effect of a
sunset by a lake. Two views of the shade are shown. Each
handpainted shade is signed by the talented Fenton artist who
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
pieces were presented to Queen Victoria. She exclaimed that the
color reminded her of a Burmese sunset. Frederick 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 Mr. 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
of the yellow from a greenish to a cream hue. Fenton's
Burmese reflects the original Burmese
with a creamier yellow base.

Fenton International Fused Glass Special!
For a limited time,
you'll receive an additional 15% off Fused Glass
from Fenton International. Our Fenton International imported line
of high relief Fused Glass by Anne Nye is pure, kiln-fired glass,
sculpturally layered for texture and vibrant color! Her creations
range from wall art, glass on a stand, suncatchers (shown here),
or functional pieces such as platters, plates and serving
bowls. Fenton International includes
handcrafted artistic creations from around the world.
Anne layers individually handcut
glass chips over a glass base to form brilliant pieces with a
nature theme. When the pieces are all carefully layered in place,
it is placed in a kiln. The oven process takes time and when the
glass reaches 1400 degrees, it begins a long, slow cooling
process. When complete, the sharp glass edges become softly
rounded, the colors with the layers fused together to form depth,
texture, detail, and personality.

collection from Fenton International. You'll receive 15%
additional discount on each Fenton International Fused Glass item until 5 p.m. ET on Friday, May
