The 2007 Connoisseur Collection Showcases Fenton Art Glass

(Williamstown, WV). The 2007 Connoisseur Collection from Fenton Art Glass showcases the skills and talents of their glassworkers and artists. Included in this year's Collection is a dramatic "Deco Floral on Mulberry" Vase.

Fenton Designer Robin Spindler was inspired by illustrations from the era of art history known as "les Arts Decoratif." Characterized by sleek lines and geometric simplicity, Robin's design features a linear sandcarved motif and a simple curving floral. Fenton glassmakers have mastered the "fade" technique required to produce this distinctive Mulberry glass.

Item 4351 TE 7-1/2" Deco Floral on Mulberry Vase, inscribed with signatures
of nine Fenton family members, limited to 1200 pieces, retails for $189 U.S.
