The Fenton Gift Shop, located in the same building, also had a large quantity of glass remaining in their inventory.
Visitors to the factory were still able to watch the beadmaking demonstrations and purchase Fenton Art Glass.
Art glass using the original Fenton mold designs, including the Fenton emblem, continues to be produced at another factory in nearby Ohio, while handcrafted jewelry and hand painted items will continue to be offered at the new Fenton Art Glass Gift Shop at 2242 Williams Highway, Williamstown, WV 26187.
In October 2017, it was announced that demolition of the factory buildings would begin by the end of 2017, and that the new school, to be named the Williamstown-Waverly Elementary School, will occupy the factory's employee and visitor parking areas.In 1939, Fenton started selling Hobnail items in milk glass.Hobnail milk glass would become the top-selling line and allowed the Fenton company to expand.Today, the company operates a manufacturing and fulfillment facility in both West Virginia and Philadelphia, producing glass beads for the wholesale and retail markets, as well as selling directly to consumers through a Fenton Glass Jewelry's online store.The Fenton Art Glass Company has been in business for over 100 years and is still making glass today in Williamstown, WV.Beginning a collection may seem a little over whelming.Questions I often hear are: “How do I know it’s really Fenton? ” A few tips to help answer those questions: Pontil Marks: 99.99% of the time, Fenton will not have a pontil mark on the bottom.Fenton uses snap rings to hold their bases while working with glass rather than punty rods. Some cruets on the other hand are made upside down.Exceptions to this rule are some Off Hand Glass made in the 1920’s, which is very rare; and Off Hand Glass made more recently by Master Craftsmen like Robert Barber, Dave Fetty and Frank Workman, which will be signed. The bottom of the mould forms the top of the cruet.With such a long and productive company history Fenton has made something to make every glass enthusiast a happy collector.There is such a wide variety of items, colors and styles it may be difficult to pick just one to collect.
