Vintage Fenton SWAN No. 5 1930's rose pink depression glass bon bon or trinket dish. The pink glass is formed in to 2 Swans that are flying away from one another. I love how the wings are part of the design in the bowl of the dish. Perfect as a candy or trinket dish.

Fenton Art Glass Company opened for business in 1905 and, in 1907, introduced America to the inexpensive iridized glassware now known as Carnival Glass. Nearly 150 patterns in antique Carnival Glass are credited to Fenton Art Glass. Throughout the next 106 years, the Company produced literally thousands of designs in a rainbow of colors, on nearly every type of glass, with and without hand-painted original artwork. In the 1970s, Fenton joined Imperial Glass in the revival of Carnival Glass by reissuing many original patterns as well as patterns from other makers the moulds for which had been purchased at auction. In 1988, Fenton entered into an exclusive distribution arrangement with the shopping channel QVC, short for Quality, Value, Convenience. Eventually over 1350 pieces were specifically designed and offered for distribution via QVC. In 2011, after 106 years of production, Fenton Art Glass closed its doors as a maker of collectible glassware.
