I have been doing some online research this afternoon and found a jewel of a website that shows photos of Fenton products that have been sold on QVC. There are 43 pages of products to flip through but there is at least one bell on most all of them! Not only is there a full color picture of the bell, each page gives the following data:
QVC Item #
Fenton Catalog #
I have been looking, off and on, at Fenton Bells after a new member posted a query on them here earlier.
I managed to pick up 3 of them to start with, (I’ll be posting photos later), and I have been researching the
company a bit since then.
A couple sites I’d like to add to Carolyn’s post here are :
And of course the Fenton site itself: http://www.fentonartglass.com/history.asp
If you click on “Fenton logo history” and “Fenton label history” you get some nice charts of the logos and labels, with the years they used them.
They don’t specifically say it, but It sure sounds like they pretty much invented carnival glass from the write-ups!
