north carolina interior designer kathryn greeley presents book giveaway and milk glass giveaway

Mid –century art glass is becoming increasingly popular and I found this lovely vintage Fenton Ivy Green Ruffled Overlay Vase recently in an antique shop while looking for other tabletop treasures. I thought this would be the perfect giveaway to end our March series of Emerald and The Emerald Isle!

Fenton Ivy was made from 1950-1953 and was made by fusing milk glass with a deep green overlay that produced a beautiful, opaque green that has a lovely gloss and brilliance.  Founded in 1905 by brothers  Frank L. and John W. Fenton, The Fenton Art Glass Company ranks among the world’s foremost producers of handmade colored glass and is made  in the USA!  The company is renowned for innovative glass colors and this dark Ivy color is certainly evidence of their innovation.

So leave us your comments about your thoughts on vintage art glass and we will draw from those for  a winner of this lovely vase on March 31st!

    I, too, have several pieces of aqua hobnail Fenton that was my mothers…she “always” put lilacs in the vase. Alas, lilacs do not do well in my “woods” so currently it has “perriwinkle.” The green ivy color is just lovely!! Count me in! franki fmparde@gmail.com

    The ruffles on this Fenton piece reminds me of a Chihuly design.
    So lovely!

    How pretty for this Irish time! I have been to Fenton many times since I have relatives close by. Sadly, they are no longer in production. They still do tours and make beads, but no more beautiful vases, etc. Thanks for a lovely blog. I love your book!

    It is sad Michelle, the beads just don’t do it for me like all of their lovely vintage pieces!

    I like how the ruffles on the Fenton vases help to hold the flowers into place. That vintage Ivy Green vase would be the perfect gift for Mother’s Day!
