Fenton Gift Shop Presents. . .
Designer Samples and May Day Specials!
For every piece of decorated Fenton offered,
our team of talented designers must first create a "designer
sample" for production approval. Sometimes slight changes may
be made in the design, and if not, that first completed piece
is designated as a "Sample" and so marked on the base of the
item, along with the artist's signature and the year it was
completed. Shown above are ten "Sample" selections offered
to glass collectors during the last several months. For
further information or to place your order, please email:
firstname.lastname@example.org or call 1-800-319-7793,
ext. 342 and provide the number shown beside each
piece. These selections are
available on a first come, first served basis, and prices
vary, so don't delay adding one of these beautiful pieces to
