For over 100 years, Fenton Art Glass has been perfecting the glassmaker's art on the banks of the Ohio River in West Virginia. Now, in an exclusive offer, Fenton is proud to present "Winter Fantasy," a fairy light (decorative glass candleholder) in the shape of a roly-poly snowman designed to delight you.

Mr. Snowman's adorable features are individually painted by hand. He is wearing a top hat trimmed with holly and a snowflake spangled scarf. A winter scene of sparkling fir trees adorns his jolly belly - and all have been frosted with "ice" - finely ground glass that has been permanently fired into the painted surface. Each piece is signed by hand by the artist who painted it.

Initial offering of an

important new collection!

First item in the Winter Fantasy series, there will be coordinating glass pieces offered at a later date to create a charming winter season tableau.

New Sample Room Items this Week

1961 Green Slag Hobnail Ash Tray

The development of opaque green colors was an important task for Fenton chemists in the 1950s-60s, and this sample piece represents a stage in that process. It's an octagonal 3877 Hobnail ash tray (just over 5" d.) in a color we'll simply call "green slag." The original paper sticker (dated 4/24/61) is still intact!

1960s Jonquil Fish Paperweight with Fount

Here's an absolutely terrific example of Fenton's Jonquil color, which was sampled by us in the late 1960s but not put into the Fenton line. Understandably, all of these samples are quite scarce today, but none could be more so than this 5193 Fish paperweight that has not been cut off the fount after it was pressed! Here's your chance to net an elusive fish, indeed! 8" tall.
