Fenton Glass (USA) Double-Handled 12" Swan Bowl, Green Uranium Glass
Fenton Glass is the largest manufacturer of handmade colored glass in the United States today and among the foremost glass manufacturers in the world.
The company was founded in 1905 by brothers Frank L. and John W. Fenton. They began their business In Martins Ferry, Ohio, by painting decorations on glassware made by nearby manufacturers. Prompted in part by the desire to work with a broader range of colours, the brothers soon decided to produce their own glass, and opened the Fenton Art Glass factory in Williamstown, West Virginia in 1907.

A fabulous double-handed swan bowl, in the larger 12" size. This glorious piece, which dates back to the 1930s, features two elegant swans -one on each end- in a stunning green. And yes, with a stunning uranium glow.
It measures approx 32cm long, 26.5cm wide and 14cm tall and is in great to excellent vintage condition. The only wear we can see is a small amount of discolouration inside, on the surface of the glass, which you can see in the picture.
Regardless, this stunning and large beauty is an absolute sight to behold!
