The Fenton Art Glass Company was founded in 1905 by brothers Frank L and John W Fenton. Over the years the company produced pattern, custard, colored and satin glass items to name a few examples.
This wonderful egg on pedestal paperweight, pattern #7424, circa late 1970's - early 1980's, is custard or soft yellow satin hand painted with coral colored roses with delicate green foliage and several accenting coral bands. The paperweight measures 3 1/2" in height. Signed on the base by the artist "C. Weihl", it also retains the original black and gold Fenton paper label "Authentic Fenton Handmade". There are no cracks, chips or repairs. Lovely piece of Fenton.
