This GORGEOUS larger Rooster DOES match Fenton's #5265S1 (mini-rooster)... Giving you a fun display! The Fenton Art Glass Company was founded in 1905 by Frank L. Fenton and his brother John W. Fenton in an old glass factory building in Martins Ferry, Ohio. They began by painting decorations on glass blanks made by other glass manufacturers. Soon, being unable to get the glass they needed, they decided to produce their own glass. The first glass from the new Fenton factory in Williamstown, West Virginia, was made on January 2, 1907.
During its 106-year history, Fenton introduced the first iridescent ware (now known as "Carnival glass") as well as classic patterns such as Hobnail, Burmese and a wide variety of handmade colored art glass as limited editions. Sadly, on July 6, 2011, the Fenton Art Glass Company announced that it would cease production of its collectible and giftware glass products. The company had faced financial challenges since its restructuring in 2007, and recent developments combined to force the shutdown of its traditional glassmaking business.
