~ IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT ~
An announcement was made on 7-6-11 from Fenton Art Glass that they are shutting down production of traditional glassware, which includes the collectible items and home decor and figurines.
As items sell out on our website, we will remove them for ordering.
There will be no more Burmese produced;  what is pictured here is all that we will have.
 
 

History of Burmese Glass

In 1885, Frederick Shirley, an Englishman who immigrated to America, patented the formula for an opaque, heat-sensitive glass which, when warmed-in, shaded from lemon yellow to salmon pink.  As legend has it, when several of Shirley's pieces were presented to Queen Victoria, she exclaimed that the color reminded her of a Burmese sunset.  
Shirley's Mt. Washington Glass Co., in New Bedford, MA, adopted the Burmese name. 
In 1969, after many trials, Fenton chemist Charles Goe replicated Shirley's Burmese, & it has become one of the most collectible Fenton colors.   Burmese contains pure gold, & careful reheating coaxes the delicate pink shading into existence.   The yellow color comes from a small amount of depleted uranium in the batch.   Over the years, there has been variation in the color of the yellow from greenish to a cream hue.   
The current Burmese reflects the original Burmese with a creamier yellow base.
