Opalescent Optics History
From 1880 through the 1920s, many American glass companies produced opalescent glassware with various optic patterns. Today’s collectors use descriptive names such as these – Coin Dot, Coinspot, Criss-Cross, Drapery, Lattice, Polka Dot, Rib Spiral, Stripe, Swirl or Windows.
Beginning in 1907, Fenton made optic pitchers, tumblers and vases in amethyst, crystal, green and blue opalescent. During the 1920s, Fenton produced blown opalescent tumblers and pitchers, including some with covers or the popular “icelip” of the period.
In the 1930s and 40s, Fenton brought out major lines of opalescent glass in Spiral optic and Coin Dot optic motifs. These vases, bowls, and other shapes were available inCranberry Red or Stiegel Blue as well as French Opalescent or Topaz Opalescent. Green Opalescent colors debuted in the 1950s. Fenton’s repertoire of optics has increased over the years as we have created our own optic moulds inspired by the historic optics or acquired optic moulds from other glass companies.
Fenton Cranberry is made with pure gold in the finest tradition of mouth blown craftsmanship. Fifteen glass workers are needed to complete a simple vase and as many as 26 may be necessary for a more intricate basket. These craftsmen work in teams as they carefully form and reheat the gold ruby, cover it with a layer of crystal, blow and finish it to its final form.
