Edition designs! You may also request that we add your email

One look at this Opal Satin vase and we named
it "Delightful Dragonfly" for Kim Barley's fun and whimsical design
of a hovering colorful dragonfly amongst vibrant stylized flowers. Note the
curliques on the wings and tail and don't
miss that pink flower on the body of the dragonfly! Kim added
final touches with a lone flower on the back side as well as
soft lavender-pink and green hues on the background of the
vase. Each Delightful Dragonfly Vase is $160.
Frances Burton's cheery hand painted design
on this Opal Satin bird figurine includes vibrant flowers
and hues of teal and green. Each Spring Flowers
Bird figurine is $80.
Pre-orders for the Delightful Dragonfly Vase and the
Spring Flowers Bird figurine will be accepted until
midnight (ET) on Monday, June 27th.
Ruby glass provides the perfect canvas for Robin
Spindler's scene of a girl reading near the water. . .
with a fish jumping and her faithful canine companion
sitting contentedly behind her on the other side. Robin
named her creation "I've got your back" and it is included
in her signature on each figurine. The hand
painted details are amazing on this heartwarming scene of
summer tranquility. Each I've got your back Ruby
Alley Cat is $235.
Nature's beauty, one of Frances Burton's
favorite design topics, can be seen in many of her
hand painted creations. . . and this Opal Satin Candy Box
is no exception! Blue and white flowers provide a
beautiful floral frame for two delicate golden
butterflies. Frances added a blue band and scroll accents
to complete the look. The hand painted details are
meticulous, especially on the butterflies. Each
Butterfly Beauty Candy Box is $155.
Below: Frances Burton has transformed this Opal Satin
Owl figurine into an elegant golden raptor! Her hand painted
design includes lush pink flowers as well as striking black
accents. Note those mesmerizing eyes!
Did you know. . . There are
currently about 225 owl species, and of those about 50
have ear tufts. However, these tufts are unrelated to the
owl's hearing as the ears are located on the sides of the
head, behind the eyes.
The function of ear tufts remains a mystery
with several theories. The most common theory is that owls use
their feathery tufts as camouflage. But we're sure that
this graceful Owl figurine will add a touch of beauty to
any display! Each Pink Floral Owl figurine is

artist Michelle Kibbe used a variety of decorative
techniques to create this one-of-a-kind vase. The vase
(10.5” tall) is satin finished ruby glass. A puppy has
jumped to the top of a sofa or chair to watch the
Chickadee on the green branches just outside the
window of a farmhouse. You can see barn buildings in the
background of this scene. Michelle’s colorful hand
painting is remarkably detailed, and every element of
this hand painted decoration is true to life!
Celebrate American independence on the Fourth of July
with this wonderful one-of-a-kind Duck figurine (5" long)
with a patriotic design created and
painted by Fenton artist Frances Burton. Made of Opal
Satin glass by Mosser (using a Fenton mould), this Duck
figurine was the perfect canvas for the subtle
red-white-blue colors of "faded glory." A great addition
to any collection of Fenton glass or figurines!

elaborate hand painted decoration of white and purple

created by Fenton designer Martha Reynolds (this
particular basket is signed on its side by Fenton
decorator Sunday Davis). The 12 Fenton family signatures
are on the underside of the basket along with the New
Century Collection backstamp. The New Century Collection
