NEW Limited Edition Designs
from Fenton Gift Shop.
Fenton Gift Shop is pleased to offer these
new Limited Edition selections for pre-orders. Each piece
features a hand painted design (signed, numbered and dated) by
our talented designers. Included in this grouping are a 10.75"
Vase, a 3.5" Bear Figurine, an 8" Chessie Cat Covered
Box, and a 5" Duck Figurine− each piece handcrafted in Opal Satin glass
exclusively for the Fenton Gift Shop, using a Fenton mould, by Mosser Glass. Also
included is an 11" Cobalt Blue Alley Cat Figurine (made
by Mosser) and a Fenton Art Glass 10" Chocolate glass Vase.
Michelle Kibbe continues to delight us with her
hand painted nature-themed designs. She created a wonderful
scene on this 10.75" vase of a mother bear and her two cubs
exploring a wooded area near a stream. Her use of earth tone
colors and thin double bands on this piece provide the frame
for her design. Michelle added pine cones on branches to
complete her look for this Limited Edition vase. Each
Mama Bear and Cubs Vase is $170.
And what better companion piece for the vase than this
adorable "Pine Cone Baby" Bear figurine! The photo shows the
front and back of this figurine. Michelle continues her nature
theme with this realistic design of a black bear cub. She even
added a pine branch complete with red berries. Note that
fabulous expression on the cub's face! Each Pine Cone
Baby Bear Figurine is $75.
Below: Cobalt glass provides a rich canvas for Robin
Spindler's hand painted "Puppy Kisses" design on our Alley Cat
figurine. One scene depicts a young girl getting "puppy
kisses" from her beloved puppy.
The other side shows a puppy looking down upon
a small rabbit... perhaps the pup is deciding whether or not
give a kiss to this furry friend! Crisp white daisies and
fluttering butterflies adorn the entire figurine.
As always, the Alley Cat's face has that
signature mischievous grin.

This Limited Edition vase may become your future
family heirloom! Handcrafted in
a classic color and shape from Fenton Art Glass, this
spectacular vase features cameo carving techniques as well as hand painted designs by two talented
artists! The cameo carved panoramic landscape scene, created
by artist Cathy Mackey, includes a country church with the sun's
rays shining upon it.
Cameo carving is a painstaking process. After
the glass has been annealed, a special mask is taped to the
surface of the glass. Using an advanced "vignetting"
technique, each piece is carefully sand carved, by hand, using
aluminum oxide crystals under pressure to take away some of
the surface. Great individual skill and experience are needed
to control this operation, as many distinct stages of
successive cameo carving are required to create the remarkable
depth and the intricate details.
But wait... there's more! Robin Spindler added beautiful hand painted details on the sky and
landscape as well as two white-tailed deer. The overall effect
is simply breathtaking! Shown below are the different views of
the vase, including a close-up of the two deer. No matter
which side of this vase is displayed, you'll delight in the
The Chocolate glass color dates back to the earliest days of
the Fenton Art Glass, but it was reintroduced in 2005 to
celebrate the company's 100th anniversary. Among the first of
company co-founder Frank L. Fenton's innovations was Chocolate
glass, which was made from mid-1907 to about 1910. As with
many of Fenton's glass colors, no two pieces are ever the
same, and the unique colors of Chocolate glass include shades
of caramel, mocha and milky cocoa.
Each Country Church with Deer
Chocolate Vase is $350 and is limited to just 10 vases!
Below: Celebrate in style when you
display this Opal Satin Chessie Cat Covered Box filled with
"Derby Day" treats or a floral arrangement. Kim Barley
celebrates the "run for the roses" with her
take on this famous event. The gray cat with big green eyes
and soft pink nose is ready to celebrate a win with its fancy
hat adorned with roses, feathers, netting and a butterfly.
Kim added a white bracelet, a pair of
horseshoes, one of the signature "Derby drinks" and a steeple.
The back of the box features a beautiful hand painted horse
with flowing mane.
Did you know. . . Chessie was a popular cat character used as
a symbol of the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway. They used this
artwork with their slogan that when traveling on their
railways you would "sleep like a kitten". Fenton Art Glass
began making this covered box for the railway in the early
1970s and it has since become a collector favorite. Each
Derby Day Chessie Cat Covered Box is $150.
This figurine is a great Father's Day gift for
use as a desk paperweight or to display in a bookcase.
Designed by Kim Barley, this Limited Edition "Stylized Mallard
Decoy" Duck figurine is sure to please figurine collectors as
The hand painted details are marvelous and colorful, like the
Mallard. Note the characteristic bright blue highlights on the
beak and around the eyes.
Each Stylized Mallard Decoy
Duck Figurine is $75.
Pre-orders for the Country Church with Deer Vase,
the Derby Chessie Cat Covered Box and the Stylized

Auctions. . .
Here's an opportunity to own a beautiful
"one-of-a-kind" art glass creation or a piece
of Fenton history through our weekly eBay auctions.
This auction ends at noon (ET) on Wednesday, May 17.
Items featured this week.
Fenton artist Michelle Kibbe's depiction of a pair of
Dalmatian pups (are they brother/sister?) will delight all who
wonderful dogs in real life. This stately vase stands 11.75"
tall and is made of satin finished Rosalene glass. A collector
favorite, this heat-sensitive glass is made by adding pure gold
to an opaque glass batch and reheating the formed piece, the
soft white glass became a wonderful soft pink. Frank M. Fenton
named this new glass Rosalene and Fenton Art Glass produced
the first Rosalene grouping in 1976. Michelle's talents and
skills are shown to perfection as she captures the
characteristic black/white Dalmatian colorations and the
facial expressions these dog owners have come to love.
Here's a wonderful one-of-a-kind iceberg paperweight that was
created and hand painted by award-winning Fenton designer
Robin Spindler. You'll love the marvelous color effects Robin
achieved on crystal glass, and the fierce Tyrannosaurus Rex
will delight all who see it! We cannot recall a Fenton item
with a TRex from our 100+ years of history, so that makes this
one-of-a-kind even more special. This iceberg paperweight
(4-9/16" long and 4-1/4" tall) is identified and signed on the
Fenton artist Michelle Kibbe captures all the splendor of
Spring with her hand painted depiction of a male Goldfinch
perched on the first flowers to bloom in this wonderful
season. This stately one-of-a-kind vase stands 9.5" tall, and
is handcrafted in Seabreeze glass by Blenko Glass (using the
Fenton mould). The satin finished turquoise glass color
contrasts beautifully with the vivid coloration of the
Goldfinch and the lush flowers and foliage.
Made of Lavender glass, this stately one-of-a-kind vase
(nearly 12" tall) really showcases the talents and hand
painting skills of Fenton artist Michelle Kibbe. The lush
floral motif completely encircles the vase, and the bright
colors and variety of flowers depicted are really quite
stunning. Every hand painted petal and leaf seems real, quite
a testament to Michelle's creativity and her abilities.
