Each morning sees some task begin,
Each evening sees it close;
Something attempted, something done,
Has earned a night’s repose.

~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow


Far and away the best prize that life offers
is the chance to work hard
at work worth doing.

~ Thomas Jefferson


The reward of a thing well done,

is to have done it. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Choose a job you love,
and you will never have to work
a day in your life.

Fenton Art Glass Factory, circa 1907

Our glass artists love trying new designs and colors to give you a special creation. . . from their hands to your heart. They take great pride in the high quality and durability of each art glass bead. Fenton makes the finest glass colors in the world for your expressive creations. During our 110 years of glassmaking experience, we have developed amazing glass colors and treatments that are now translated into sparkling, artistic jewelry. . . handcrafted in America!


Young Frank L. Fenton started the company in 1905 and developed glass techniques that were beautiful and unexpected. His vision led us from hand painted designs and iridescent Carnival glass, Mosaic, and Vasa Murrhina glass infused with golden flecks to hundreds of lustrous glass colors! We continue his vision today with Fenton USA Jewelry. You'll see our rainbow of color, from rich reds and pinks that step beyond color normally found in glass to our exciting combinations of blues, greens, purples and more!  ~ George W. Fenton

Four NEW Limited Editions from Fenton Gift Shop. . .

Fenton Gift Shop is pleased to present four new Limited Edition selections. Designed by Fenton's award-winning designers, each piece will be handpainted, signed and dated. Included in this offering are an Opal Satin "Bugling Elk" Square Vase, a "Yellow Primrose" Sitting Cat figurine, and a Crown Tuscan "Kitten and Daisies" Chessie Box, all handcrafted by Mosser Glass. Also included is a "Giraffes at Dusk" Opal Satin Vase, made by Davis-Lynch. These items were made, using Fenton moulds, as exclusives for the Fenton Gift Shop.

Robin Spindler's creative talents shine on this Opal Satin Square Vase shown above. Her design features a wonderful handpainted scene of a male Elk (known as a Bull) in his natural habitat "bugling". One of the most unforgettable sounds in the wild is to hear the "bugle" of an Elk. Bull Elks "bugle" to attract cows and to advertise their dominance to other bulls. This Bugling Elk Square Vase is $225.00.

This Opal Satin Sitting Cat figurine has a lovely handpainted yellow floral design by Frances Burton. She airbrushed this figurine in a bright teal-blue color and added  pink accents on the nose, mouth and ears. Note the expressive eyes
and colorful neck collar. A great addition to any figurine collection. This Yellow Floral Sitting Cat figurine is $75 and limited to just 10 figurines!


Pre-orders for the Bugling Elk Square Vase and Yellow Floral Sitting Cat figurine will be accepted until midnight (ET) on Monday, September 7, 2015.


Shown at left is our popular Chessie Box, handcrafted in Crown Tuscan. The subtle pink hue of this glass provides the perfect canvas for a design by Frances Burton of a kitten snuggled in a soft pink blankie. Kittens can sleep between 15 to 18 hours a day, and this cute gray tabby looks ready to settle in for a nice, long "cat nap" amongst the daisies!


The handpainted details are remarkable... from the brushstokes on the petals of the daisies to the expression on the kitten's face. This Crown Tuscan Kitten and Daisies Chessie Box is $210.


Unlike kittens, giraffes only sleep about 30 minutes during a 24-hour period. So it's appropriate that, for this beautiful Opal Satin Vase, Kim Barley designed a scene of "Giraffes at Dusk". Her scene of a "tower" or "herd" of giraffes in silhouette against the late hues of an afternoon sky is remarkable.


Imagine, if you will, that these giraffes are foraging for food on the great Savannah plains of Kenya. Kim's design encircles the vase, so no matter how it is displayed, you'll enjoy a magnificent view! This Giraffes at Dusk Vase is $225.


Pre-orders for the Kitten and Daisies Chessie Box and the Giraffes at Dusk Vase will be accepted until midnight (ET) on Wednesday, September 9, 2015.

Fenton Weekly eBay Auctions. . .

Here's your opportunity to own a unique, rare, or one-of-a-kind item, through our weekly eBay Auctions! Shown below are our latest offerings: a one-of-a-kind figurine from award-wining Fenton designer Robin Spindler, a photo of Fenton glassworkers circa 1910, and a finisher's paddle with the name of a skilled glassworker. Items featured this week. . .

Taken about 1910, this 8" x 10" black-and-white photo depicts a group of glassworkers at Fenton Art Glass in Williamstown, West Virginia. This group is Elmer Goosman's press shop. Elmer, a skilled presser, is the fellow in dark clothing (second from right). We have not been able to identify the other glassworkers for certain, but the fellow in the center of the photo is holding a punty, so he would be the glass gatherer. The fellow in the back who has the tool with three prongs is a carry-in boy, as that tool is used to convey glass items to the lehr for annealing.

This finisher's paddle (14" long) with carbon blade and wooden handle was made for skilled glassworker Rob Camden in the Fenton Art Glass pattern shop. You'll see the "ROB CAMDEN" lettering on one side. Rob Camden was a skilled finisher at Fenton for several years.


It's the start of the Fall season, so all the fun of Halloween cannot be far away! We all know that Halloween celebrations and costumes often feature ghosts and goblins, so what could be better than a one-of-a-kind Ghost figurine (5.5" tall). This Ghost figurine is handcrafted in Opal glass as a Fenton Gift Shop Exclusive by our friends at Mosser Glass, using a Fenton mould. This figurine was decorated by award-winning Fenton designer Robin Spindler. As you can see in the photos, she created a marvelous design of cobwebs (note the spider and gemstone!), pumpkins and leaves. This Ghost figurine is identified and signed inside: "OOAK hand painted by JK Spindler".

Be sure to take a look at these offerings and other "Buy It Now" items available on our Fenton eBay Auctions.
This Fenton eBay auction ends at noon (ET) on Wednesday, September 9th.
