Fenton Silver Crest...1940 Art Glass

CollectIn' The 1940's


Thank goodnes it didn't SELL!!!!
My Collection of Fenton Silver Crest Art Glass
If it had, I wouldn't have it to promote the 1940 US Census Community Project.
As most of you know I love Collecting Dishes.  Especially those from the 1930's through the 1960's.
Silver Crest is one of Fenton's patterns that started in the 1940's.  This pattern is also made as Emerald Crest and Aqua Crest. 

Fenton Art Glass Company has been turning glass into fine art since 1905, and continues today to be among the foremost glass manufacturers in the world.  Known for its beautiful colors and patterns, Fenton continues an American tradition with it's skilled glassworkers and talented decorators.

Frank L. Fenton kept the company in the forefront of  Artisan Glass industry, but during the Depression Era and the early years of World War II, Fenton also produced practical items such as mixing bowls and perfume bottles. Fenton History - About Fenton Art Glass Website.  Fenton Art Glass is now in it's Fourth Generation of the Art Glass Industry.  View the Fenton Family Tree.

My favorite piece...The Two Tier Tidbit Tray.
The demand and plentiful supply for Silver Crest has made it one of Fenton's most recognized line.

Hi Sue,
I actually used to live near the Fenton Glass Mfg. company in Ohio. I lived in WV and it was only about two hours away. I have been there many times and it's fascinating to see how they make this lovely stuff.

Glad you collect it. It's beautiful.

Hope you are doing well.

hugs
Sissie

You have a nice collection started. I have seen Fenton things for years but never knew the history of the company. Thanks for sharing.

I collect Fenton Silver Crest, and my 3 tiered tid-bit is my favorite piece too! A long time ago I decided all of my plates and serving pieces should be white or clear so they'd go with every tablecloth... saw FSC and fell in love! Happy St. Patty's Day Sue:@)
