(above left:) Fenton Folk Art Rooster Box, #4680 NA, YOP: 1996. This
Rooster Box from 1996 was the first Fenton Rooster Box to have been painted
in Fenton's Folk Art Animals motif, in 1996 with a coordinating 5" Hen on Nest
created as a companion piece.  
Stacy Williams' Bleu Chateau design is similar to Kim Barley's mould & both are
considered French Country. Subtle but visible differences between the two designs
include-the Bleu Chateau motif which features a beautiful design centered on  each side
painted with shades of blue and yellow on Ivory satin glass, but with less blue on this
tail than the Blue Toile design has.

The Blue Toile design features blue on ivory with fine, curled trailers accenting small
floral bunches, over most of the rooster, with no yellow to the color palette, and with
more blue on the rooster's head and his tail.  

The Bleu Chateau motif features a beautiful design using blue and yellow on Ivory satin
but with less blue on the rooster's tail than the Blue Toile design has.  The Bleu Chateau
design also has painted fringe accenting the cowl, with more unpainted ivory left
showing on the face.

NOTE: The 4.5" rooster box mould purchased at  L.G. Wright's going out of business sale
was immediately popular with Fenton collectors. To date this rooster box mould was
only produced in-line by Fenton as factory decorated wares with painted designs.
Fenton 8-1/2" Standing Rooster, ware 5257 FV, YOP: 1998.  This
ivory rooster has been decorated with the 1998 Folk Art Animals
motif, designed by Robin Spindler to feature soft country shades of
rose, rust, sage painted on the ivory glass rooster.
Fenton Rooster Box, #6483 DD, YOP: 2005.  This 4 1/2"
Fenton Rooster Box features an Ivory Satin rooster top
decorated with Stacy Williams' beautiful Bleu Chateau motif
on a Cobalt Satin base.

Welcome Fenton Hen & Rooster Enthusiasts
& all with an interest in Fenton Art Glass!
(above right:) Fenton Folk Art Hen on Nest, #5186 NH, YOP: 1996. 5" Hen

painted in the 1996 Folk Art motif, as a companion to the Rooster
Box of that same year. Like the rooster box this hen on nest is hand-Painted

Today, although their furnaces no longer burn as they once did, Fenton Art Glass remains highly collectible on
many online secondary market venues, including eBay. Fenton's success & the history behind the family that
for decades
was Fenton Art Glass make it all the more desirable now that it is no longer being made by the
Fenton Factory, due to what some call the Fenton mystique-
This site is comprised of several sections, each of which addresses a wide Glass
hens, roosters & more, via the many venues currently available on the Internet.   

The site's Introduction to Online Fenton hen and Rooster Collecting has helpful tips
and information about why Buyers should beware-which the following section about
the Features and Characteristics of Fenton's hen on nest forms takes a few steps
further.  Additional tips, notes and information about why Buyers should Beware  
when buying Fenton from photos and written descriptions, such as those found on
eBay, can also be found throughout the site.  

Individual Sections are included about each Fenton Hen on Nest and Rooster moulds,
including their Chicken Servers & Hen Egg Plates, the 8" hen on the smooth and  
later scalloped rim nests, the 5" hen on nest, both sizes of Rooster Boxes, the three
sizes of Standing Roosters, "Shelf Sitter" Roosters, Mini Hens, Turkey Boxes, & special
ordered Art Glass poultry produced by Fenton, such as the Rosalene pieces, marked
with HCA and made in Limited Editions, per special order by the Heisey Collector's
Association, to be made using the Heisey moulds.

 Information about Navigating the Site, what to
expect from this site, which topics are covered-and why are listed on the Index and
Table of Contents page, a link to which can be found at the top and bottom of this

However, Fenton's Hens, Roosters and Turkey Boxes continued to be made in the
USA, until the company ceased production of all wares.
 An exception to this is the
Fenton glass rooster Christmas ornament, which is not made in the USA, as many
Holiday Ornaments of quality are.  As of 2012, Fenton's Hen on Nest dishes, Rooster
Boxes, and their standing and "Shelf Sitter" roosters were produced by Fenton in the
USA, with new logos added to Fenton's roster of logos indicating what each of the
various logos represented.  
Collecting-or selling brand name Fenton Art Glass and especially their Hens,
Roosters, and other art glass poultry, all proudly produced in the USA, from the early
1950's until Fenton officially closed in 2012, cooling the furnaces that burned for
over 105 years.
