“Fenton Art Glass Company is the largest manufacturer of handmade colored glass in the United States. The Fenton Art Glass Company was founded in 1905 by Frank L. Fenton and his brother John W. Fenton in an old glass factory building in Martins Ferry Ohio. They began by painting decorations on glass blanks made by other glass manufacturers. Soon being unable to get the glass they needed they decided to produce their own glass. The first glass from the new Fenton factory in Williamstown West Virginia was made on January 2 1907.
Frank L. Fenton’s desire to develop new and unusual colors helped to keep Fenton in the forefront of the handmade art glass industry. During the years from 1905 to the 1920’s Fenton design was influenced by the artists at Tiffany and Steuben. In late 1907 Fenton introduced ”Iridescent” glass. This glass now known as ”Carnival” glass is a popular collectible treasure today. During the 1930’s and 1940’s Fenton produced practical items such as mixing bowls and tableware to get through the depression and WWII shortages.
In 1986 the leadership of the company passed on to the third generation with George W. Fenton Frank M’s son taking over as President. Today nine Fenton family members work together along with over 100 employees to create handmade glass artistry that is loved by collectors around the world. Fenton is known for its beautiful colors and patterns. Each piece of glass is an artistic creation by skilled glassworkers and decorators.” [From Fenton/Handcrafted American Glass Artistry web page.]
