Fun Fenton items that you may not know they made!

When it comes to Fenton, I always think of certain pieces or patterns—it could be a silvercrest vase, any piece with the hobnail pattern, and even a Fenton lamp.

There are fun pieces that I have run across that I wouldn’t think of being produced by Fenton.  The first one is this terrific paperweight.

clown

It has a clown motif and it sports the Iridescent Rose finish. It dates to the 1970’s, you can tell by the paper label that’s on it.  You can see this paperweight in my Etsy shop here.  Another fun item is this terrific vase.

blue oddesy

This FENTON INTERNATIONAL vase is from the  Blue Odyssey Collection, and it has the DECO CIRCLES pattern on it.  I love the shape of it—it’s a design that you don’t see everyday!  You can see this vase in my Etsy shop here.

Another fun item that you may not think of is this great ginger jar.

This great Fenton Blue Opalescent Coin Dot Three Piece Ginger Jar (it has the lid, jar and stand) is big—it’s 8 ¼ inches tall!  What threw me off from this being a Fenton piece was the fact that it is a ginger jar.

You can see this terrific ginger jar in my Etsy shop here.  As a matter of fact, you can see all of the Fenton items I have for sale on Etsy here.  Head on over and check them out!

Great Fenton items for any collector!

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.
