… a blog for depression glass and elegant glassware collectors

identifying Fenton Glass

Reader Beau asks, How can I tell if I have a real FENTON piece?

The Fenton Art Glass Company has a number of online resources for collectors including history of the company, books and catalogues, and newsletters.

The Fenton label images and Fenton logos images may help in your pattern identification.

You may also wish to consult some of the independent Fenton Glass collector clubs. There is a list of clubs on the Fenton Art Glass Company site.

Chat About DG: Depression Era Elegant and Everyday Glass Discussion Board is a great place to discuss depression and elegant glassware, and meet other DG collectors online. A great stop for IDing your Fenton glass. (registration required)

You can also browse the great pictures in the Glass Etch and Pattern Gallery (no registration required).

Hope these resources help you in IDing your Fenton pieces!

  1. I was at my friend’s house for dinner on Sunday and what did I find but several pieces of Fenton Silver Crest glassware. Apparently the previous owner of the house left them behind.
