New Sample Room Items this Week...

Favrene Grape Nappy

This 5-3/4" d. Grape nappy was made about 1973-74 when we were working with trial batches of our Favrene glass. The pattern interior has a fine matte finish, and the exterior has a nice luster. This piece was found in Frank's Closet.

What is Frank's Closet?

The late Frank M. Fenton had a storage area that contained special Fenton items that he would offer to the most avid Fenton collectors from time to time. Some collector's have visited this special place and brag about their visit every chance they get. Pieces in Frank's closet range from thousands of pieces from our history, to special colors and interesting shapes, to items that were never actually produced for our catalogs. Frank's closet continues to be a great source of ideas for Fenton Art Glass. We're very careful about releasing these items but Frank liked to from time to time.

We're excited to keep Frank's tradition by offering a few pieces in the Sample Room.

Fenton Art Glass offers a variety of hand made items that can be customized for your organization or event. Start by choosing a piece of quality Fenton made glassware such as bells, paperweights, icebergs, or trophies. Then, send us your company or organization logo, award recipient’s name, event date, etc. We will hand-carve the items of your choice with the black and white artwork that you provide. Additionally, you can choose from the traditional elegance of the plain sandcarved glass or fill the carving with a bit of color to accentuate your design.

Many of our customers have found such success with our sandcarved glassware, that they have developed continuity programs, offering their customers a series of hand-carved bells or paperweights. The beauty and fine quality of Fenton glassware also brings prestige to award presentations year after year.
