A Collector since 1977 and Buyer and Seller, since 2007, of vintage and contemporary Fenton Art Glass, 19th C. glass from Mt. Washington Glass Company, 19th C. Thomas Webb & Sons, England, 19th C. Harrach, and Kralik, Czech glass companies, Before the end of WWII, the US was considered the largest importers of Czech glass. We bought our chandeliers and glass buttons from them. If considering a purchase of a chandelier, look first at antique or vintage Czech made chandeliers. They are by far still the best made. The store stocks for sale antique Dugan, Northwood, Millersburg and vintage Fenton Carnival Glass bowls, figurines, eggs, vases, etc. Beware: As of 6/2015, for every 10 pieces of carnival glass I purchase from E-bay, 9 pieces were returned because they were fakes.

Prussia bowls, vintage French, Austrian, and German Majolica plates, retired Royal Doulton Lady Figurines, dated and signed, and (Sept 2016) hand blown art glass from contemporary masters, like Jean Claude Navarro (Deceased, 2014), known as the best hand blown art glass creator in the world (commissioned by King of Dubai for 24 months to stay in Dubai and make art glass sculptures for the King alone.

Wes Hunting's art sculptures are also represented. He has been professionally hand blowing art glass In US for over 30 years! The Wes Hunting: Pink and Gold Landscape on Sale after 9/7/16.



**** What is "psychotic consummerism?" If you hear someone level spending sprees on you, tell them to get an update! That 1950s characterization has long been replaced by one that includes males, females, equally, ages 13 to 63, and all ethncities.


Definition of Rarity: An item of value, of such limited quantity, for a number of reasons, that its value is identified as UNDETERMINED. What does that mean to sellers. If you find one of these, debut it on an internet purchasing platform at a very high price. Do not concern yourself about selling it. Just let buyers and sellers know that a price value has been established. Wait. Take the listing down and list it in your shop at the same high value. In about 3 months, tops, other sellers will list the item at the place you debuted it for even more money. Three and half years ago, I started buying up Fenton 1960s' Plated Amberina (glossy / matte / satin finish can be striped) Fenton glass items for below and somewhat above $100 dollars per piece. Those pieces are in my store for around $275 to $375 dollars. On E-bay, these same pieces are listed for $625 dollars and up to $825 dollars. I have not increased my prices. So, there you have my sales offer to you! Take a look. I do not care if they ever sell. The prices of Fenton Plated Amberina are continually raising and will do so until someone makes a purchase which sets the price at "what the market will bear".

***Look for Victorian (to 1885) and Edwardian Period (son of Victoria, 1885 to WWI, 1914) canary yellow uranium glass; 1905 start of addition of opalescent glass added with uranium; 1930 begins the addition of iron oxide which results in green tinted yellow uranium glass coined by public as Vaseline Glass. Great deal for feedback customers.
Understand canary yellow uranium glass, (English and US) made 1885 to 1905. 1905, US glass makers start laying layers of translucent glass on top of transparent glass in mold and re-firing the glass to create canary yellow opalescent uranium glass. And as mentioned above, Vaseline did not start into production until 1930 in the US. Just the addition of iron oxide, as a colorant making the glass appear green tinted. Iron oxide is used today as a colorant in our prescription medications. Uranium is florescent under long wave ultra violet light or black light because of its chemistry and not the radio active isotopes. Meaning, the electrons from each atom that orbit the neutron and protons jiggle when exposed to UV long wave light, black light, (including daylight). This jiggling is perceived by our brains through our eyes as the glass piece is glowing brightly, either bright yellow or yellow with green tinting. Other glass that contains uranium i.e. satinized white glass, green opalescent glass, blue opalescent glass, burmese glass and others. Ruby Lane has all the glass containing uranium under vaseline glass in their search engine. Fenton was the only glass company to start making glass with uranium in 1907 calling it Topaz Opalescent.
Most of the uranium used by glass makers had a very low geiger counter reading of about 300 to 400. Where English glass, i.e. Cambridge, had a reading of around 1300. One would have to take a sharp knife and splay glass fragments with it, for quite a while, in order to be exposed to the radio active isotopes.(Not likely to happen.) Additionally, without the readings, one can assume depletion of radioactive isotopes in the uranium. There is a great $14 plus dollar black light at Amazon. It has a waffle lens, 6 inches in length,and it is weighted so the user is less likely to drop it. The waffle lens appears to create more shimmering of the uranium glow than an ordinary lens cover. (I can recommend this one as I bought one on Amazon after researching).
