Fenton USA Presents. . . The Celebration Continues!

West Virginia became the 35th state
in the USA on June 20, 1863, and we continue our celebration of 150 years of statehood!

 

Fenton Art Glass has a long and rich history in the Mountain State. Groundbreaking for the Fenton factory took place in Williamstown, West Virginia in the early fall of 1906, and our first glass was made here on January 2, 1907. Though traditional glassmaking ceased in 2011, today beautiful handcrafted glass jewelry is created in the same building. Click here for information on special events commemorating West Virginia's 150th Statehood Anniversary!

This beautiful 10'' Vase was included in the 2009 Connoisseur Collection. . .
simply the best of the best! Each piece comes with a printed certificate.
Lady Elegance is the perfect name for this vase. The vivid iridescence of our Favrene glass is beautifully complemented by an elegant handpainted lush floral design by Stacy Williams. When first introduced, the Lady Elegance Vase was limited to 750 pieces. We have located a few remaining vases (fewer than a dozen) in a storage area at the Fenton factory.

The spirit of innovation applied to age-old glassmaking techniques is what makes Favrene a real rarity today. As with many handmade glasses, Fenton's Favrene
isn't a recent invention. It is Fenton's unique version of two earlier glasses ― Tiffany's Favrile and Steuben's Blue Aurene. Enticed by the silvery blue color found in these pieces, Frank M. Fenton worked to develop a similar color. A special reheating process was necessary to create the silvery layer on the outside of each piece. Favrene was introduced in the Fenton line in the 1991 Connoisseur Collection and continues to be a collector favorite.     08559T7 10'' Lady Elegance Favrene Vase, $295.00, Buy Now!
 

The Horizons Collection marked a new direction for Fenton Art Glass. A letter from company president George Fenton  was included in the 2007 catalog. In it, he states, ''...As always, each article of Fenton glass bespeaks our pride in the craftsmanship of the designers and the skilled artisans who make these products possible. Our Horizons and Studio collections for 2007 mark new directions for us, as we seek to adapt and change in keeping with emerging trends in a highly-competitive marketplace."

 

Included in the 2007 Horizons collection, this elegant 11-3/4'' Aubergine Satin Vase features a Stacy Williams design called "Asian Art on Aubergine." Simple,
yet elegant. . . the graceful art of the Orient effortlessly spans centuries and is perfectly expressed with matte gold patina on sanded glass. Each vase is signed by Stacy and by George Fenton. We have fewer than a dozen remaining in stock.

Fenton Jewelry's Art Glass Beads. . .

With truly unique designs, each bead has a sterling Silver core (approx. 3/16" dia.) embossed with Fenton USA and features the initials of the artist. Creating a three-dimensional bead is like ''painting with molten glass'' according to Jena.
