more correct to state that AWCO was one of their best customers.

for them.

listed below apply to the web site).

Page 35 - Fourth paragraph - the number on a Charleton label indicates AWCO's stock number.
Page 37 - Top photo (third picture on web site) - vases are Consolidated's #4112-C
The Big Book of Fenton Glass 1940-1970 by John Walk
Page 174 - Chapter Eight. Final Notes
First paragraph and others - "Wasserberg" is misspelled - "Charleton" is misspelled.
Second paragraph - Westmoreland's "Roses and Bows" misspelled.
Third paragraph - we know of no Charleton pieces with silver flowers, perhaps this should read
Ivory or White. We are not aware of any Charleton Ivy decorations on Fenton's Emerald Crest.
Fourth paragraph - with the exception of the last sentence, the reader must keep in mind that this
entire paragraph is speculation and not supported by any data. There is no finding to support the
theory that the flow of pieces dryed up after WW II due to the workers repatriating or finding
employment elsewhere.
