"one-of-a-kind" art glass creation or a part
of Fenton's history through our weekly eBay auctions.

Items featured this week. . .
A pair of playful kittens (could they be twins?) pause to gaze
at a yellow butterfly on this splendid one-of-a-kind hand
painted vase (9.5" tall) by Fenton artist Michelle Kibbe. The
satin-finished cobalt blue glass is the perfect background for
Michelle's lush hand painted floral motif and foliage, and the
twin kittens are perfectly detailed and wonderfully realistic.
The vase was handcrafted at Blenko Glass, using the Fenton
mould, exclusively for Fenton Art Glass.
With Lotus Mist Burmese glass for her canvas, Fenton artist
Michelle Kibbe designed and hand painted this splendid
one-of-a-kind combination of a floral motif and interesting
scenes on this 9" tall vase. The Dogwood flowers around the
base are beautifully done, and you'll love the scenic
depiction of rolling hills, a meandering dream and a white
church beside a country road. Lotus Mist Burmese is a classic
Fenton glass color that contains pure gold in the batch and
requires special reheating techniques to create the delicate
This 8" Opal Satin plate from Fenton Art Glass
production features a wonderful, one-of-a-kind hand painted
"Haunted House" scene created and hand painted by Fenton
artist Kim Barley. Every element of the scene─from the
splendidly detailed Victorian house and the dead tree to the
bats circling aloft and the forbidding airbrushed background─
is perfectly executed. Kim has lettered the back of this
one-of-a-kind plate as follows: "Ghosts are hiding in the
walls. Creeping out when darkness falls.” She added “OOAK
2017” below the poem. Kim’s signature appears on the front of
this one-of-a-kind plate, just below the tombstone: “Kim
Barley 2017". Includes plastic plate stand.
Here's a rare opportunity to acquire a tool actually used in
making handmade glassware at the Fenton Art Glass Co., and
this example goes back many years. This tool is 15.75" 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!
