Celebrate the Artistry of West Virginia with Fenton Art Glass . . .
We are pleased to offer these selections in the West Virginia state colors of Blue and Gold.
 

Our Cobalt Blue Stretch Glass Rolled Top Trumpet Vase was handcrafted at our factory in Williamstown, West Virginia. The mould is from the 1920s and was also used to make our Fan Vase. This vase stands approx. 6-1/2'' tall.

The Cone Flowers and Butterfly design is by Michelle Kibbe,
and each vase is signed by
the talented Fenton artist
who handpainted it.
 

More than 60 different Blues
are in the Fenton product line. Cobalt creates a dark blue and copper imparts a light blue. In combination with each other or with additional coloring agents, cobalt and copper are used for almost all of our blue colors.


CV640EL Cobalt Stretch Trumpet Vase $90.00 Buy Now!  

Stretch glass was first made about 1915 and played an important part in Fenton's production during the 1920s. Decades later we made this glass once again in much the same way. After the glass is sprayed with a solution of metallic salts to create the iridescent finish, the items
are reheated so that they can be reshaped. A skilled glassworker, called a finisher, reshapes the item causing the iridescent surface to stretch. This process creates a myriad of striations and a texture that is a delight to see. Each piece reflects some of the great traditions of the American glass industry as well as our pride in handmade art glass.
We've made these pieces even more special by adding George Fenton's signature!
Each piece is signed George Fenton 13.

CV164AQ Autumn Gold Leaf Bowl $50.00 Buy Now!

 

Our Autumn Gold Leaf Bowl is the perfect tabletop companion for the Trumpet Vase. The fiery fury of Fenton's furnaces create a ''liquid gold'' that, when cooled, is captured forever in the honeyed shades
of Autumn Gold glass. Measuring approx. 8-1/2'' in diameter, this elegant bowl features a unique ''zipper-crimp'' edge. George Fenton's signature appears under the top of one of the crimped edges.
