Items featured this week.
With satin finished Persimmon glass for her
canvas, Fenton artist Michelle Kibbe designed and hand painted
this splendid one-of-a-kind 10.5" vase. Her design features a
buck and doe deer, and the background elements include birch
trees, a shallow creek and a weathered outbuilding in the
Fenton executive Tom Fenton and cameo carver Cathy Mackey
collaborated to design and create this beautiful,
one-of-a-kind flip vase (6" tall). The flip vase is made of
iridized black glass, and the iridescence is a shimmering
orange hue that is generally called Marigold (note the diamond
optic pattern on the iridized inner surface). The sandcarved
cameo motif is an intricate, detailed foliage pattern. 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. This one-of-a-kind cameo carved vase is identified ("OOAK")
on the underside and has been personally signed: “T.K. Fenton,
Here’s a great opportunity to acquire a unique piece of Fenton
history. When our 12-pot furnace was shut down for repairs in
July 1980, small lumps of glass in various colors remained in
the bottoms of some pots. Some of this glass was ground and
polished by Fenton employee Jim Stage, who was then foreman of
the Finishing Department (Jim is now associated with the
Williamstown Antique Mall). This opaque Patriot Red piece
measures 2” by 2” and weights about 8 ounces. It will make a
nice paperweight or accent piece to display with a Fenton
collection. This opaque Patriot Red piece has been personally
signed by company President George Fenton.
This pair of iridized Daisy & Button Baby Booties would be a
great addition to any collection of glass shoes or a keepsake
gift for a baby! Handcrafted in Petal Pink and Celeste Blue in
the mid-1990s, each Bootie measures 4-3/8" long and about
2-1/4" tall and both have an iridized finish. These Booties
have been signed by company President George Fenton.
