The Kovels' Top 20 list is based on the results of hundreds of thousands of searches that took place on its website during June 2014. Fenton has been creeping up the Top 20 list and this month appears at the top. It’s a popular and often inexpensive collectible.
Fenton Art Glass Co. was founded in 1905 in Martins Ferry, Ohio, by Frank L. Fenton and his brother, John W. Fenton. They painted decorations on glass blanks made by other manufacturers until 1907, when they opened their own glassblowing factory in Williamstown, West Virginia. They are well-known for their carnival glass, an inexpensive, iridescent pressed glass that they made from about 1907 to about 1925. The Fenton vase shown here is from the Silver Crest line, opaque glass such as custard or milk glass decorated with a clear ruffled edge. It’s 5 inches high and sold for $32 in an online shop.
