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 completed it.

Burmese History:
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. 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 the color
of the yellow from a greenish to a cream hue. Fenton's Burmese reflects the original Burmese
with a creamier yellow base.


As the company continues the wind-down process, more limited quantity items will be sold online and through our weekly newsletters in order to reach
the most Fenton collectors.
As a result, items may sell out quickly, so don't delay placing your order for special Fenton creations!

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.
 

Click on each image or click here to view the complete Fused Glass 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 18. The sale price will appear in red above each qualifying item.
