— More than 500 Fenton Art Glass pieces are expected to be sold when the Fenton Art Glass Museum holds its final auction.

Collectors from around the world are expected to attend the July 26 auction at the Dexter City Auction Gallery in Dexter City, Ohio. The auction is the last of three to be held.

Fenton Art Glass in Williamstown stopped traditional production in 2011 and now produces jewelry beads. The museum closed in December 2013.

Fenton historian Jim Measell tells the Parkersburg News and Sentinel (http://bit.ly/1whYOW5 ) that bidders can expect to see a wide range of colors and historical items from the second half of the 20th century, along with stretch glass pieces from the 1920s and 1930s.
