earrings with hand applied decorations that appear on each
side of the glass bead:

Lotus Mist Burmese, a classic color that
contains pure gold created by Fenton Art Glass about 15
years ago, provides the perfect canvas on this 13.25"
tall vase for a splendid one-of-a-kind hand painted
scene designed by Frances Burton. The rustic cabins and
barn nestled amongst the pines and other trees remind us
of some of our favorite "hideaway" places here in West
With lustrous, satin-finished black glass for her
canvas, Robin Spindler created and hand painted this
remarkable one-of-a-kind vase (10.75" tall). This is
surely one of the most artistic and unusual vases ever
created by Robin, and, as you can see from the picture,
it really makes a statement! More views are
available on our eBay listing. This vase will definitely
start a conversation when on display in your home or
office! The theme incorporates various animals … from
the spots of the leopard and the coat of the zebra to
the majestic elephant and the delicate butterfly! Note
the gemstone accents, too!
Robin chose to depict both meanings of the word "Vixen"
on this magnificent Ruby glass Alley Cat! She's not only
transformed this 11” Alley Cat into a female fox, or
Vixen. . . she then added hand painted details, along
with a gemstone studded collar, to show the "flirty,
mischievous" meaning of this word! Note those ruby red
lips on that all-knowing smile and the colorful blue
accents above the eyes! This Vixen Alley Cat will
definitely get your attention!
Here's a rare opportunity to acquire a tool actually
used in making handmade glassware at the Fenton Art
and this example goes back several years. This tool is
15.25" in length, and it was used to "turn out" hot
glass items after the glass had set up and the cast iron
mould was opened. In the first few years of glass
production at Fenton, it was not unusual to have young
fellows 12-13 years old working as "turning-out boys" or
performing other tasks in the glass factory
manufacturing area. The tool operates like a set of
pincers to fit around the glass item and then can be
squeezed to hold it securely and take it away from the
mould. What a great piece of Fenton history! Take a look at these offerings and
