Vintage Fenton Art Glass ~ Carnival Glass Glassblower Craftsman Series Plate
Description ~ from the House of Fenton comes to you this gorgeous carnival glass plate, number 1 in a series of 12 commemorating American craftsman - this plate is the glassblower and began, in 1970, several series of limited edition carnival glass plates (the moulds were destroyed at the end of each plate's year). Comes in a box, which I believe to be original to the piece.
Proudly made in the USA!
Highly collectible and displays absolutely wonderfully; perfect for set matching and completion; an ideal gift for the Fenton Art Glass collector - or as a hostess gift.
