eBay Auctions. . .
Here's an opportunity to own a beautiful
"one-of-a-kind" art glass creation or a part
of Fenton's history through our weekly eBay auctions.
This auction ends at noon (ET) on Wednesday, April 12,
Items featured this week. . .
Fenton artist Michelle Kibbe enjoys
Springtime and loves the outdoors, and her wonderful depiction
of a Black Bear on this one-of-a-kind vase (12.5" tall) in
Lotus Mist Burmese glass will bring any avid collector out of
"hibernation" for this auction! Her representation of deep
woods is exceptional, as Michelle's talented hand painting
creates the look of rays of sunshine coming through the
trees. The Black Bear is simply perfect with meticulous
Fenton artist Michelle Kibbe welcomes Spring with this
one-of-a-kind Songbird figurine (4" long) that she has hand
painted with a colorful, whimsical bow and a delightful
bouquet of flowers. Every hand painted detail is just perfect,
and, as always, the eyes are remarkably expressive.
These glassmaking tools, called “pincers” by those who work
with glass, are used to grasp hot glass items, usually when
the item is taken out of a mould or off the blowpipe or when
it is ready to be placed in an annealing lehr or kiln. These
pincers are made of spring steel and are ready to be used in
glassmaking. The jaws of the pinchers are covered with
heat-resistant Kevlar so that the metal of the tool will not
mar the hot glass item. There are 5 different pinchers in this
group, and we have measured both the approximate length of
each pincer and the approximate width of the jaws at the
widest area. (1) length 15.5” jaws 4.125” wide; (2) length
15.” jaws 3.25” wide; (3) length 19” jaws 7.5” wide; (4)
length 20” jaws 4.75” wide; (5) length 21” jaws 11.25” wide.
All of these pincers were used in glassmaking operations at
the Fenton Art Glass Co. in Williamstown, West Virginia.
Here’s a rare opportunity to acquire a splendid sample item in
Favrene glass that was made at Fenton Art Glass. This is our
9199 Turtle Ring Tree (3.5” long and 4” tall), and this sample
was made about 1974-75 when we were perfecting our techniques
to produce the distinctive Favrene glass color. Favrene
contains pure silver in the glass batch, and special reheating
techniques by our glassworkers were needed to create the
iridescent finish. This sample has the museum acquisition
number in white (65-11-88) that was put on when this piece was
set aside in the Fenton Museum storage area; the “65”
designates sample pieces.
