Fenton USA Jewelry Announces New Business Partnership. . .

To Fenton Art Glass Collectors and Jewelry Fans,

 

Fenton USA Jewelry is pleased to announce a new relationship with the John Barton Company of Philadelphia, PA. Our goal is to increase our product offerings and marketing reach and we are very excited about the prospects.
    

 John Barton markets fine menís jewelry. Len Davis, owner of John Barton, and his staff are also very interested in glass and all of its potential. Their current business is built around major national retailers and includes a number of name designer lines. They have a strong design staff who will be working to bring new design directions to the Fenton Art Glass Jewelry brand, starting in 2016. This background will be a very good fit with the special history and skills of Fenton.
 

See www.johnbartoncompany.com for an overview of their current products.

 

We are pleased to introduce a line of cufflinks from John Barton. These cufflinks include unique styles. Shown below are cufflinks created with glass as a major element. John Barton's cufflink designs are very distinctive and high quality.

 

Best personal regards,

 

George W. Fenton

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 Cased Glass Vase with a handpainted "Bluebird" design by Fenton designer Robin Spindler, a black and white photo of Fenton Art Glassworkers (circa 1925), and
an original "pucellas" glassmaking tool used in our factory by a skilled glassworker.

Items featured this week. . .

 

This one-of-a-kind 11" tall vase by award-winning Fenton designer Robin Spindler is a sight to behold! The vivid colors of the wonderfully detailed, hand painted Bluebird 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 two exotic dragonflies! The handpainted elements have great texture and details. This black glass cased with Red glass 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 Ö OOAK".


Taken about 1917 or 1918, the 8" x 10" black-and-white photo shows a large group of glassworkers at Fenton art Glass in Williamstown, West Virginia. Unfortunately, only one person, factory manager Jacob Rosenthal, has been positively identified in this picture. We wish we could tell you more about this great piece of Fenton history!
 

Here's a rare opportunity to acquire a tool actually used by a skilled glassworker at the Fenton Art Glass Company in Williamstown, West Virginia, USA. This tool is called "jacks" by the glassworkers, and the original term for it was "pucellas." The pucellas or jacks is used by the glassworker who is called a finisher, as he sits at a bench and uses the tool to crimp or otherwise shape the glass. This tool has inscribed initials "JH," so we know it was used by Jerry Hayes, who worked at Fenton for more than 40 years.

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, October 7th.
