Avid carnival collectors will especially love our striking 8'' Black Marigold Lion Bowl. Produced as a Fenton Gift Shop Exclusive for 2008 this piece is a must have for any Carnival glass collection.
In October 1907, Fenton Art Glass Company entered the marketplace with an exciting new line of glassware called ''iridescent ware'' which featured vivid, changing metallic hues on highly-patterned pressed glassware. Stories told about how this glassware was used as midway game prizes and the phrase ''Carnival glass'' was coined. When Fenton resumed production of their iridescent glass in 1970, we decided to call it "Carnival glass'' and have done so ever since. The secret, both in 1907 and now, of Fenton Carnival glass is the special spray of metallic salts on the glass while it is very hot. We continue to make Carnival glass the ''old fashioned'' way, and we never cease to marvel at the rainbow of colors and the interesting hues.
