FULL REPORT PUBLISHED ON APRIL 12 DISCUSSION OF LATE PERIOD FENTON MADE FOR QVC

Check out the Deluxe Edition Review of the April 12th discussion of Late Period Fenton Stretch Glass Made for QVC.  To view the document with photos discussed during the call, click here.

This was our fourth discussion on the topic of late period stretch glass (1970-2011). In our previous calls, in May and October 2017, and February 2018, we discussed Fenton in-line colors as found on their catalogue pages. In the April call we switched to the less well-known colors that were made exclusively for QVC. The Fenton Glass Company started selling glass on QVC in the late 1980’s.  Shortly thereafter, stretch glass was introduced to the QVC buying public.


Early Period Central and Jeannette discussed in May 10 Stretch-Out Call

Early Period Central and Jeannette was the topic of our Stretch-Out call on Thursday, May 10, 2018, at 8 pm Eastern.  We discussed the photos in this document on the call.

This was our fourth discussion on the topic of lesser-known companies that were producing stretch glass from 1916 to 1933. On May 10 we discussed the production from two of the ‘minor’ glass companies, Central Glass Works (Wheeling, Pennsylvania) and Jeannette Glass Company (Jeannette, Pennsylvania).

Central appears to have used a single bowl mold, but shaped the mold into many forms. They also made two sizes of trumpet-shaped candle holders. Some of their pieces have gold glue-chip decoration. In contrast Jeannette used several bowl molds. They also made handled servers with unique handle shapes. Both companies used a multitude of different colors.

Watch this space for a full report on the discussion which will be posted soon!
