Each morning sees some task begin,
Each evening sees it close;
Something attempted, something done,
Has earned a night’s repose.
Far and away the best prize that life offers
is the chance to work hard
at work worth doing.
The reward of a
thing well done,
is to have done it.

Fenton Art Glass Factory, circa 1907
Our glass artists love trying new designs
and colors to give you a special creation. . . from their
hands to your heart. They take
great pride in the high quality and durability of each art
glass bead. Fenton makes the finest glass colors in the world
for your expressive creations. During our 110 years of
glassmaking experience, we have developed amazing glass colors
and treatments that are now translated into sparkling,
artistic jewelry. . . handcrafted in America!
Young Frank L. Fenton started the company in
1905 and developed glass techniques that were beautiful and
unexpected. His vision led us from hand painted designs and
iridescent Carnival glass, Mosaic, and Vasa Murrhina glass
infused with golden flecks to hundreds of lustrous glass
colors! We continue his vision today with Fenton USA Jewelry.
You'll see our rainbow of color, from rich reds and pinks that
step beyond color normally found in glass to our exciting
combinations of blues, greens, purples and more!

Fenton Gift Shop is pleased to present four new Limited Edition selections.
Designed by Fenton's award-winning designers, each piece will be handpainted,
signed and dated. Included in this offering are an Opal Satin
"Bugling Elk" Square Vase, a "Yellow Primrose" Sitting Cat
figurine, and a Crown Tuscan
"Kitten and Daisies" Chessie Box, all handcrafted by Mosser
Glass. Also included is a "Giraffes at Dusk" Opal Satin Vase,
made by Davis-Lynch. These items were made, using Fenton
moulds, as exclusives for the Fenton Gift Shop.
Robin Spindler's creative talents shine on
this Opal Satin Square Vase shown above. Her design
features a wonderful handpainted scene of a male Elk
(known as a Bull) in his natural habitat "bugling". One of
the most unforgettable sounds in the wild is to hear the
"bugle" of an Elk. Bull Elks "bugle" to attract cows and
to advertise their dominance to other bulls. This
Bugling Elk Square Vase is $225.00.
This Opal Satin Sitting Cat figurine has a
lovely handpainted yellow floral design by Frances Burton.
She airbrushed this figurine in a bright teal-blue color
and added pink accents on the nose, mouth and ears.
Note the expressive eyes
and colorful neck collar. A great
addition to any figurine collection. This Yellow
Floral Sitting Cat figurine is $75 and limited to just 10

Shown at left is our popular Chessie Box,
handcrafted in Crown Tuscan.
The subtle pink hue of this glass provides the perfect
canvas for a design by Frances Burton of a kitten snuggled in a
soft pink blankie. Kittens can sleep between 15 to 18 hours a
day, and this cute gray tabby looks ready to settle in for a
nice, long "cat nap" amongst the daisies!
The handpainted details are remarkable... from
the brushstokes on the petals of the daisies to the expression on the kitten's face. This
Crown Tuscan Kitten and Daisies Chessie Box is
Unlike kittens, giraffes
only sleep about 30 minutes during a 24-hour period. So it's
appropriate that, for this beautiful Opal Satin Vase, Kim
designed a scene of "Giraffes at Dusk". Her scene of a "tower"
or "herd" of giraffes in silhouette against the late
hues of an afternoon sky is
Imagine, if you will, that these giraffes are
foraging for food on the great Savannah plains of Kenya.
Kim's design encircles the vase, so no matter how it is
displayed, you'll enjoy a magnificent view!
This Giraffes at Dusk Vase is $225.

figurine from award-wining Fenton designer Robin Spindler,

Items featured this week. . .
Taken about 1910, this 8" x 10" black-and-white photo
depicts a group of glassworkers at Fenton Art Glass in
Williamstown, West Virginia. This group is Elmer
Goosman's press shop. Elmer, a skilled presser, is the
fellow in dark clothing (second from right). We have not
been able to identify the other glassworkers for
certain, but the fellow in the center of the photo is
holding a punty, so he would be the glass gatherer. The
fellow in the back who has the tool with three prongs is
a carry-in boy, as that tool is used to convey glass
items to the lehr for annealing.
This finisher's paddle (14" long) with
carbon blade and wooden handle was made for skilled
glassworker Rob Camden in the Fenton Art Glass pattern
shop. You'll see the "ROB CAMDEN" lettering on one side.
Rob Camden was a skilled finisher at Fenton for several
It's the start of the Fall season, so all
the fun of Halloween cannot be far away! We all know
that Halloween celebrations and costumes often feature
ghosts and goblins, so what could be better than a
one-of-a-kind Ghost figurine (5.5" tall). This Ghost
figurine is handcrafted in Opal glass as a Fenton Gift
Shop Exclusive by our friends at Mosser Glass, using a
Fenton mould. This figurine was decorated by
award-winning Fenton designer Robin Spindler. As you can
see in the photos, she created a marvelous design of
cobwebs (note the spider and gemstone!), pumpkins and
leaves. This Ghost figurine is identified and signed
inside: "OOAK hand painted by JK Spindler".
