It's Shameless Commerce Tuesday, and today I'm featuring a pretty Fenton 75th Anniversary Hand Painted Pitcher, available in my vintage Etsy shop, Aunt Pheba's Vintage.
This beautiful hand painted spruce green pitcher was created especially for the Fenton Art Glass Company's 75th Anniversary in 1980. This exquisite piece has beautifully painted floral designs, autographed by the painter, Linda Enerson. (I am not sure of the last name, but I am not in a position to criticize anyone for their signature!)
The base depicts the 75th Anniversary logo, and is signed by Bill Fenton. The original sticker with the Fenton logo is attached near the unique swirled glass handle.
This piece stands approximately 6.75 inches high.
Fenton Art Glass went on to celebrate its 100th anniversary in 2005. Fourth-generation Fenton family members worked with skilled glassworkers and decorators to create beautiful, handmade art glass in Williamstown, West Virginia. Sadly, the company ceased traditional glassmaking in 2011, making this piece a true collector's item.
This pitcher would be a lovely accent for shabby chic or cottage chic home décor, or to used as a vase to hold fresh flowers.
