3087M5 NEW Fenton 5-1/2'' tall Honor Collection Vase in Mulberry Art Glass
Fenton 3087M5 Honor Collection Mulberry Vase. The 2003 Honor Collection is a tribute to Fenton Art Glass founder, Frank L. Fenton, who developed “Mulberry” Art Glass during the early 1940’s. At the time, Fenton was producing a transparent color called Aqua. Suggested that the glassblowers take a small amount of the gold ruby used to make the “Cranberry” Art Glass and cover it with Aqua, to see what the combination would produce. “Mulberry”, a beautiful color that shaded from reddish purple to blue was the result! THIS Honor Collection “Mulberry” Art Glass vase bearing the inscribed signature of Bill Fenton was produced for the 2003 season. This is the LAST HONOR COLLECTION, Bill, chose, before his death! Bill Fenton passed away on December 11, 2002. It has the date 2003, and Honor Collection permanently fired in china paint on the bottom. Currently, we have #2115 of only 2500 produced. ONLY ONE (1) LEFT!! FENTON ART GLASS MADE IN THE USA. 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. During its 106-year history, Fenton introduced the first iridescent ware (now known as “Carnival glass”) as well as classic patterns such as Hobnail, Burmese and a wide variety of handmade colored art glass as limited editions. Sadly, on July 6, 2011, the Fenton Art Glass Company announced that it would cease production of its collectible and giftware glass products. The company had faced financial challenges since its restructuring in 2007, and recent developments combined to force the shutdown of its traditional glassmaking business.
