Ruby Carnival Glass 100th Anniversary Year 7 Basket. Hobstar & Flower is Fenton's re-naming of Imperial's Four-Seventy-Four (474) pattern. The product information in this listing (code, year, artist) should be retained for future reference.Opened for business in 1905 and, in 1907, introduced America to the inexpensive iridized glassware now known as Carnival Glass. Nearly 150 patterns in antique Carnival Glass are credited to Fenton Art Glass. Throughout the next 106 years, the Company produced literally thousands of designs in a rainbow of colors, on nearly every type of glass, with and without hand-painted original artwork. In 1988, Fenton entered into an exclusive distribution arrangement with the shopping channel QVC, short for Quality, Value, Convenience. Eventually over 1350 pieces were specifically designed and offered for distribution via QVC. In 2011, after 106 years of production, Fenton Art Glass closed its doors as a maker of collectible glassware. 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.
