A little Fenton Art Glass history

The Fenton Art Glass Company was founded in 1905 in Martins Ferry, Ohio and closed up shop in 2011.  For over a century, they produced art glass that was sought after by collectors.

Now that the plant has closed, the collectors are out even more to find that rare piece.

Vibrant colored vases, beautiful dinnerware, candlesticks, pitcher and glass set, and on and on today find their way onto the auction table or estate sale commanding more than their original offering.

Patterns, logos, artist signatures, and labels have changed over time, but the demand continues. 

Looking for that special piece to complete your collection?  You can find all of my great Fenton finds here.
