Carnival Glass collector travels 10,000 miles to visit Fenton Factory in Williamstown

Graham Chave, from Perth, Australia, toured the Fenton Factory this week and shopped for Fenton Carnival Glass. Graham is an avid collector of Carnival Glass and is a member of 4 Carnival Glass Clubs in Australia.

While in the United States to attend the Heart of America Carnival Glass Convention in Kansas City, Mo., Graham made a 2-day stop in West Virginia to visit Fenton Art Glass in Williamstown.

"Being in the U.S., I couldn't miss seeing Fenton," said Graham.

Fenton Family Signing Events

Mark your calendar! A member of the Fenton family will personally sign your Family Exclusive pieces and all Fenton purchases. Reserve yours today.

The Rose Nut Dish is handcrafted with Aubergine glass, and the Marigold iridescence is created by spraying the glass while it is still very hot. The historic mould and plunger used to make the Rose Nut Dish originated at the Imperial Glass Company about 1910, and they were recently acquired by Fenton.
