Books on Fenton Glass
If you are looking for
Frank L Fenton and his brother John founded the Fenton Art Glass Co in 1905 in Martins Ferry Ohio, initially as a glass decorating company. In January 1907 the company moved to its newly-built glassworks in Williamstown and began making its own glass. One of the first to make Carnival Glass, Fenton flourished and survived all the ups and downs of the depression years and the war years, and was a thriving business for over 100 years. The company restructured in 2007 in the hope it would survive for many more years.
