Rosalene glass is a collector favorite. In the late 1960s Frank M. Fenton and Fenton chemist Charlie Goe wanted to duplicate an antique color called Pink Slag.This heat-sensitive glass was made in the early 1900s for a brief time by another glass company. By adding pure gold to an opaque glass batch and reheating the formed piece, the soft white glass became a wonderful soft pink. Fenton named the new glass Rosalene. After some production difficulties and further experimentation, Fenton produced the first Rosalene grouping in 1976. Over the years Rosalene has adapted to a variety of shapes and treatments. This one-of-a-kind vase is identified, dated and signed on the underside: "Fenton 2016 hand painted by Frances Burton OOAK".
