The Fenton Art Glass Company opened its doors in a rented space in Martins Ferry, Ohio in 1905. Since then, the company produced quite a variety of items and colors–you could find a piece for just about any part of your house.
It could be a lamp with a cranberry Fenton Shade for the living room, a vase for your favorite type of flowers, or even something for the kitchen table. One of the items that you an get for the table is this great pair of candle holders.
This pair of amber colored candle holders sports the hobnail pattern, and they date to the 1960’s. The great thing about them is that they are low enough so you can look over them and see the person on the other side of the table. You can see them in my Etsy shop here.
Another thing that Fenton did was that they made glass items for other companies, and that’s what they did with this perfume bottle.
The perfume bottle was made for Devilbiss, and it has the Blue Opalescent Coin Dot pattern on it. The bottle dates to the 1950’s, and it has a replaced replaced atomizer (the bottle is just a decorator piece now). You can see it in my Etsy shop here.
Fenton also made a wide variety of bells, like this example.
This pink opalescent variety dates to the 1950’s, which can be dated by the paper label on it. You can see this wonderful example in my Etsy shop here.
As a matter of fact, you can see all of the Fenton pieces in my Etsy shop here.
You never know what shape, pattern or color you could run into while out shopping. What have you seen?
