Fenton Art Glass Vintage Collectibles

In 1905 the Fenton brothers, Frank and John opened a glass factory in Ohio. They were original artists who painted on glass produced by other glass makers. In 1907 they moved their operations to the Fenton Art Glass factory in Williamstown, West Virginia. Fenton Glass is best known for its unusual colors and patterns and was the first to introduce iridescent glass better known as carnival glass. Fenton has continued that tradition over the years creating colorful opalescent glass, Auburgine, Rosaline, Burmese and Satin glass. Fenton Art Glass is now very collectible and is in high demand since the announcement of the company closing last year.
