Circa: 1940-1955 Manufacturer: Fenton Glass Company/Made in USA
This beautiful crafted opalescent hobnail mustard jar was made by the Fenton Glass Co. from 1940 through 1955. 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. In 1986, the leadership of the company passed on to the third generation, with George W. Fenton, Frank M's son, taking over as President. Today nine Fenton family members work together along with over 150 employees to create handmade glass artistry that is loved by collectors around the world. Fenton is known for its beautiful colors and patterns. Each piece of glass is an artistic creation by skilled glassworkers and decorators. In very good condition but missing the spoon and the underside of the rim has 1 tiny chip and rough spouts where the spoon would go, which I have shown in my pictures and it measures 3 inches tall and 2 1/2 inches wide. An addition to any Fenton Glass Collection. SH & Ins. will be quoted after orders placed. If you have questions contact me and thank you for looking.
