Fenton Art Glass History Carnival Glass: Yesterday and Today In October 1907, the fledgling Fenton Art Glass Company entered the marketplace with an exciting new line of glassware.
Called Iridescent Ware, this new product featured vivid, changing metallic hues on highly-patterned pressed glass articles. The glassware was popular from 1908 to about 1915, and Fentons Iridescent Ware enjoyed great success, even being exported to many countries around the world. By the 1950s, this glassware was being eagerly sought by American collectors. Stories abounded that the glass had been used for prizes in midway games, and the phrase Carnival glass was coined.Collector clubs were formed, and there has been great interest ever since. When glass in 1970, we decided to call it Carnival glass and we have done so ever since. The secretboth in 1907 and now of Fenton Carnival glass is the special spray of metallic salts on the glass while it is very hot.
Using todays technology, Fenton Art Glass technologists have rediscovered the striking vivid effects of some of the sprays first used in 1907. We continue to Carnival glass by hand, the old fashioned way, and we never cease to marvel at the rainbow of colors and the interesting hues. Fenton Art Glass is among the worlds foremost producers of handmade colored art glass, and our Carnival glass is second to none. We regard the enthusiasm of todays collectors as a great tribute to company founder Frank L. Fenton, who first ventured into the marketplace with iridescent Ware a century ago.
