Fenton Glass - Glassware

The Fenton Glass Company was founded in Ohio in 1905 by Frank L. Fenton. In 1907 the company moved to Williamstown, West Virginia and has been producing quality glass products there ever since. Fenton also produced pieces for Rubel, L. G. Wright Company, Weil Ceramics and others. The company has been struggling to survive these last few years. In 2011 they stopped producing traditional glassware and now concentrate on jewelry items.


Fenton made a variety of "crested" glassware. Each had a unique name; i.e., Emerald Crest, Flame Crest, Silver Crest, etc., depending on the color of the glassware.
