This beautiful Ruby Stretch Rolled Edge Bowl was originally offered in 2005, our Centennial year! The bowl features a handpainted design and each one is signed by the talented Fenton artist who completed it. We have a limited quantity remaining. . . so don't delay adding this magnificent piece to your Ruby glass collection!
Stretch glass was first made about 1915 and played an important part in Fenton's production during the 1920s. Decades later we made this glass once again in much the same way. After the glass is sprayed with a solution of metallic salts to create the iridescent finish, the items are reheated so that they can be reshaped. A skilled glassworker, called a finisher, reshapes the item causing the iridescent surface to stretch. This process creates a myriad of striations and a texture that is a delight to see. Rare red stretch glass from the 1920s inspired our efforts to create pieces in Ruby Amberina Stetch. Each piece reflects some of the great traditions of the American glass industry as well as our pride in handmade art glass. The photo below shows a closeup of the stretch look.
