New Sample Room Items this Week

1966 Burmese Double-Crimped Vase

This shiny Burmese double-crimped vase (4" tall) is an experimental piece, and it's graced with multi-colored "canes" applied to the gob of hot glass during an early stage of the production process. We don't see a Fenton logo on the underside, and we think this vase was made here about 1966, when the Burmese color was in its experimental period at Fenton. Bid Now (eBay)

1975 Handpainted Milk Glass Picture Frame

(Michael Dickinson)

This satin-finished Milk Glass picture frame (5-1/4" x 6-1/2") made by Fenton in the mid-1970s is graced with a simply gorgeous Fall scene handpainted by Fenton designer/artist Michael Dickinson in 1975. As we look around the countryside near Williamstown, West Virginia, today, we can see where Michael got his inspiration! Bid Now (eBay)

Stained Glass Window Cookies

Recipe from Allrecipes.com

"These are cookies which have open spaces which are filled with crushed hard candy (yellow and red work best). When baked, the candy melts and gives the appearance of "stained glass". Original recipe yield: 3 dozen

INGREDIENTS
2/3 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 eggs
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup milk
40 fruit flavored hard candies

DIRECTIONS
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.

2. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Stir in vanilla and eggs.

3. In another bowl, sift together flour, baking powder and salt; add to egg mixture alternately with milk.

4. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough 1/4 inch thick. Cut into 1/4 to 1/2 inch wide strips and, on a well-buttered baking sheet, form into window frames.

5. Keeping the colors separate, place candy in plastic bags and crush with a meat mallet. Place crushed candies inside window frames.

6. Bake for six minutes, or until candy is just melted. Cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes, until candy is hard. Carefully lift cookies off baking sheet with spatula.
