Weekly eBay Auctions. . .
Here's your opportunity to own
a unique, rare, or one-of-a-kind item, through our
Shown here are
our latest offerings: a beautiful Ruby Stretch Vase with
a handpainted design of a "Robin's Nest" by
award-winning Fenton designer Robin Spindler, a black
and white photo, circa 1925, of Fenton Art Glass top
company management (including Frank L. Fenton),
and an original glassmaking tool used in our factory.
Items featured this week. . .
Standing 11" tall, this one-of-a-kind
vase by award winning Fenton designer Robin Spindler is
a sight to behold! The vivid colors of the wonderfully
detailed, hand painted Bluebird really stand out on this
interesting shape made by Fenton Art Glass several years
ago. The background is equally interesting, as Robin
used airbrushing and delicate sand carving skills to
create the foliage and those two exotic dragonflies! The
handpainted elements have great texture and details.
This vase has a special cursive "F" Fenton logo and is
identified, signed and dated on the underside: "designed
by J. K. Spindler, hand painted by J. K. Spindler 2015 …
Taken in April 1925, the 5" x 7" black-and-white photo
shows the top management and the office employees at
Fenton Art Glass, left to right: Vesta Needs; sales
manager Robert C. Fenton, Sr.; president Frank L.
Fenton; Grace Sayre; Ruth Hart; Jessie Garber; and
Gladys Boles. This group is standing outside the
original office building that was located near what is
now the corner of Caroline and Elizabeth streets in
Williamstown, West Virginia.
The original glassmaking tool is
about 15" in length, and it was used to "turn out" hot
glass items after the glass had set up and the cast iron
mould was opened. In the first few years of glass
production at Fenton, it was not unusual to have young
fellows 12-13 years old working as "turning-out boys" or
performing other tasks in the glass factory
manufacturing area. We have a picture of a c. 1910 press
shop at Fenton, and a young fellow holding this kind of
tool can be seen quite clearly. The tool operates like a
set of pincers to fit around the glass item and then can
be squeezed to hold it securely and take it away from
the mould. What a great piece of Fenton history!
