John Fenton went on to establish the Millersburg Glass Company. Their innovative process, soon copied by all the major glass houses, involved spraying hot glass with proprietary solutions of metallic salts to produce a microscopically-thin layer of metal which bonded to the glass on a molecular level.
Different salts and multiple sprayings influenced the color and intensity of the iridescence which makes Carnival Glass so beautiful and collectible. Nearly 150 patterns in Carnival Glass are credited to the Fenton Art Glass Company. The same process was used to iridize the glassware, however modern glass accepted the metallic salt solutions in a different manner due to modern glass formulation, generally producing a "harder" (some say harsher) iridescence.
Modern Fenton Carnival Glass Will Be Trademarked, with Fenton or a script capital letter F, within an oval. Refers to the lack of production issues which plagued antique glassware. Modern glassware is relatively free of those production issues due to modernized machinery, advances in glass making chemistry, and quality control. Even so, because modern Art Glass is generally still hand shaped, hand-painted and/or hand-iridized, each piece is technically a one-of-a-kind, and you may still find a minor production issue from time to time.
