Our latest Cornerstone beads are: Catch'n a Wave, Autumn Fires, Papillon, and Frosted Windowpanes. These selections represent handcraftsmanship at its finest. Catch'n a Wave is a three-dimensional and decorated bead designed by Jena Lane Blair and Truda "TJ" Mendenhall. This bead's design reminds us of memories of fun in the sun; Autumn Fires is handcrafted using vibrant glass hues that recall dancing, flickering flames on a chilly night; the captivating Papillon Cornerstone is three-dimensional with butterflies captured in glass. . . nature's most beautiful gift; and beautiful Frosted Windowpanes reminds us of the frozen tapestry of winter.

Own a Piece of Fenton History. . .  Original Wood "Chills" Available

Fenton Gift Shop has a wonderful selection of wooden "chills" available. These chills were made at Fenton Art Glass factory, in the Pattern Shop, adjacent to the Mould Room. A "chill" is the first step in the lengthy process of mouldmaking. The chill is taken to the foundry and establishes the basic shape of the interior or exterior of a cast iron mould. These chills are made of wood and are stained, while others are wood that has been painted red or red and black. Most of the chills have identification information and may be dated.

Prices range from $5 to $25 each and up, plus shipping. For more information, please contact the Fenton Gift Shop: 1-800-319-7793, ext. 342 or via email: purchasing@fentongiftshop.com.  Fenton Gift Shop's hours are Wednesday-Saturday from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. (ET) and closed Sunday, Monday and Tuesday.

Fenton's Weekly eBay Auctions. . .

Here's your opportunity to own a unique, rare, or one-of-a-kind item, through our weekly eBay Auctions! 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 OOAK".


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!


Be sure to take a look at these offerings and other "Buy It Now" items available on our Fenton eBay Auctions.
This Fenton eBay auction ends at noon (ET) on Wednesday, September 30th.
