Beautiful hand painted, signed by the Fenton artist, Fenton Glass Burmese rose bowl. The beautiful custard yellow of the glass turns pink at the ruffled mouth of the vase. It has a matte finish. The delicate brushstrokes of the hand painted decoration create a lovely landscape of trees. It is signed on the bottom, and has its original Fenton sticker. This piece was created in the seventies.
Burmese glass was originally invented in the 1880s by Frederick Shirley for the Mt. Washington glass company. It was licensed out to other glass companies during the Victorian era, including Fenton. The name is said to have come from Queen Victoria likening the color to the color of a sunset in Burma. It was a very popular color of glass with the Victorians. It is produced by the addition of uranium oxide, calcium fluoride, and other minerals. Because of the uranium it will glow neon green under a black light. But also, like all forms of uranium glass, Burmese glass will have a gorgeous glow when it catches the evening or early morning light.
