Fenton's Contemporary Red Carnival
In Classic old Carnival, Fenton was the main producer of red, although Imperial made some sought-after examples too, predominantly in stretch glass. The great popularity of iridised red glass was recognised by glassmakers, and they were keen to add red Contemporary Carnival to their product offerings. Imperial introduced their Sunset Ruby Carnival range in the late 1960s and other red Carnival items were almost immediately offered in the early/mid 1970s by Indiana Glass and by Fenton, and then later by L.E.Smith.
Here, we are focusing on the Contemporary Red Carnival Glass that was made by Fenton over many years, as shown in a series of Fenton catalogues (and other material). Fenton's Product Code for their red Contemporary Carnival was "RN".
