You know it's prettier... FENTON ART GLASS COMPANY 1905 - 2011. John later founded Millersburg Glass Co. Introduced America to the inexpensive iridized glassware that we now call "CARNIVAL GLASS", in 1907. Involved spraying a microscopically thin coating of metal, applied as a solution of one or more metallic salts stannous chloride [tin], iron chloride, lead chloride, et.
The carrying solution vaporized leaving the metallic salts to bond on a molecular level with the glass, producing a surface that reflected light in a rainbow of colors. Each salt or combination of salts produced a different color, with intensity tied to the thickness of the coating. Nearly 150 patterns in Carnival Glass are credited to the Fenton Art Glass Company. Item has no post-production damage such as chips or cracks, BUT IT MAY have.Of the following production issues which are part and parcel of 100 year-old glass. Air bubbles in the glass that were not squeezed out during pressing. Heat checks which are internal rifts filled with air (which is why you can see them), usually from a burst air bubble. Inclusions in or on the surface of the glass, such as ash and cinders. Often found in the flames of vases and rims of bowls where it settled during pressing. Strands of undissolved colorant (usually in green glass).
In the glass caused by premature solidification where the molten glass was. Snipped from the gathering rod with cool metal shears when the mould was full; lines also formed on the surface during the cooling process. Tool marks from implements used to form the edge or influence the shape.
Mold issues related to filling and release such as incomplete or malformed edges. Rough seams, extra glass at seams; webbed, incomplete or pulled edge points. Uneven legs, slanted stems or a bowed base (causing rocking), surface lines and heat checks.Production issues in the extreme may be undesirable, but they do not qualify as "damage" and will be found to some degree on nearly all antique glassware. MAJOR wear and/or significant production flaws will be mentioned and photographed; please check photos carefully as they are a part of the description.
