The 2006 Connoisseur Collection Showcases Fenton Art Glass

(Williamstown, WV). The 2006 Connoisseur Collection from Fenton Art Glass showcases the skills and talents of their glassworkers and artists. Included in this year's Collection is a breathtaking "Sunflower on Plated Amberina" Vase.

The eye-popping texture and color of this vase will amaze and delight. Designer Stacy Williams used stylized strokes of raised white enamel on a canvas of exotic Plated Amberina glass to create a dimensional sunflower that rivals the look of nineteenth-century English cameo glass.

Item 5437 YZ 8-1/2" Sunflower on Plated Amberina Vase, inscribed with signatures of nine Fenton family members, limited to 1500 pieces, retails for $199 U.S.
