Merry Christmas from all of us at Fenton Art Glass and Fenton Gift Shop in Williamstown, West Virginia.
During this wonderful season of the year, we're looking forward to sharing time with our close families and nearby friends,
not to mention the smiles, handshakes and hugs from those we see less often. The sights and sounds of Christmas never fail
to fill us with reverence and awe. We hope all of you will share with us the joy and meaning of Christmas. . .

Peace on Earth and Goodwill Among All.

Fenton Gift Shop Presents. . . NEW Limited Editions

Fenton Gift Shop is pleased to offer a new selection of Limited Edition glass! Each piece features a design by our award-winning Fenton artists, and will be hand painted, signed, numbered, and dated by the artist. Included in this grouping: an 8" Chessie Cat Covered Box, a 3.25" dia. Ornament, a 6" Owl, an 11" Alley Cat, a 5" Stylized Cat, a 10.5" Vase, and a 8" hexagonal-shaped Vase, all handcrafted in Opal Satin by Mosser Glass. These Limited Editions were made exclusively for the Fenton Gift Shop, using a Fenton mould and then returned to Fenton Art Glass Company where our talented artists created these wonderful designs. NOTE: Sorry, though we can not guarantee delivery by Christmas... You can give the recipient a printout of this newsletter and let them know that their gift is "on the way!"


Michelle Kibbe created a lovely scene recalling horse and buggy days and beautiful handmade quilts for
or this Opal Satin Chessie Cat Covered Box. She added a soft blue background for her hand painted "Wedding Rings" quilt pattern motif.

 

Did you know. . .
Quilting Bees are considered social gatherings where people come together and work on quilt squares and tops throughout the winter, then meet again to complete the quilts once the weather cleared. Note the decorative hand painted design on the lid and the details on the barn, horse and buggy. Each Quilting Bee Chessie Cat Covered Box is $160.


Michelle continues her "Santa's Friends" theme with an endearing design of a cute bear cub presenting a gift to a bluebird pal. The perfect companion piece to the Santa figurine previously offered in our December 9th newsletter! A soft green background provides a frame for Michelle's hand painted scene on this Opal Satin Ornament. Glittery accents complete this piece and she will personally sign and date each ornament. Each Bear Gift Ornament is $60.
 

 


Kim Barley's hand painted design on this Opal Satin Owl figurine makes it a perfect gift for someone special (start thinking ahead to Valentine's Day!), conveying the message "I'll give you the moon and my heart on a string."

 

Kim added a colorful blue front, star accents and shiny gold details on the base, claws and feathers. Each Heart on a String Opal Satin Owl Figurine is $95.

 

Below: Our stately 10.5" tall Opal Satin Vase provides the perfect canvas for Michelle Kibbe's wonderful design of a wolf silently watching from amongst a grove of birch trees. The hand painted details are amazing, especially those mesmerizing eyes!

Did You Know. . . a wolf's sense of smell is at least 100 times better than that of a human!
Each Watching Wolf Vase is $190.

And now for something completely different. . . we are sure you will enjoy this latest "whimsical" design twist from the talented Kim Barley! Shown above is her "Street Cat" design on our Opal Satin Stylized Cat figurine.

Note the expression on the face, those crinkly whiskers, the paw prints, the opened can of tuna and other details on this figurine. . .  a must have for any cat figurine collector! Each Street Cat Stylized Cat Figurine is $100.

Fenton Art Glass eBay Auctions. . .

Here's your opportunity to own a beautiful one-of-a-kind or rare  Fenton Art Glass creation through our weekly eBay Auctions! This auction ends at noon (ET) Wednesday, Dec. 28th. Items featured this week. . .

 

NOTE: We will be taking a holiday break from our weekly eBay Auctions after this week. Be sure to look for new items to be featured for the January 4th Fenton Art Glass eBay Auctions!

 

Here's a once in a lifetime chance to acquire a fabulous sample of satin-finished Burmese glass from Fenton Art Glass. This Hobnail pattern swung vase stands 18-3/4" tall at its highest point, and the original paper tag on the underside of the foot even provides the exact day it was made ("9-21-72") as well as this information: "New BE #9 Sample". At this time, Fenton was experimenting with glass batches to be used for pressed glass Burmese articles. Pure gold in the Burmese glass batch creates the splendid pink color when the glass is warmed-in after pressing, and great skill and dexterity are required to create a swung vase this tall!

This "designer sample" Cobalt Blue glass triangular paperweight was designed by Fenton designer Kim Barley and is 5" wide at its base and stands just over 4.5" tall at its peak. It's easy to feel like you're "at the beach" in this hand painted scene, looking over gentle rolling waves to see a lighthouse in the distance. Note the seagulls, too! This paperweight is engraved with the word "sample" as well as Kim's personal signature.

With satin-finished Ruby glass for her canvas, Fenton artist Michelle Kibbe designed and hand painted this splendid one-of-a-kind fan vase. In fact, this is Michelle's very first piece that is dated 2017 (we were going to wait until the New Year, but we thought this fan vase would be especially nice for a "belated" Christmas gift!). The fan vase is 8.5" tall, and the top opening is about 6" wide. The female Cardinal bird on the rustic fence is beautifully done, and the Winter background is delightful. Click here to check out the details on each item and place your bid! This Fenton eBay auction ends at noon (ET) on Wednesday, December 28th. The next scheduled Fenton Art Glass eBay Auction begins at noon (ET) on Wednesday, January 4, 2017!
