NEW Limited Edition Designs
from Fenton Gift Shop. . .
We are pleased to offer new
Limited Edition selections for pre-orders. Each piece features
a hand painted design and will be signed, numbered and dated by one

handcrafted exclusively for the Fenton Gift Shop by Mosser
Glass, using a Fenton mould.
Below: This Cobalt glass Alley Cat provides
the perfect canvas for award-winning designer Robin Spindler's fantastic rendition of
a Bald Eagle and its young. Her design encircles this
impressive 11" figurine, and includes an Eagle's head, a large nest with two eaglets, and a
soaring eagle. Note the wonderful expression on
the Alley Cat's face!
Did you know. . . Bald eagles are not
actually bald. The name "Bald Eagle" actually comes from an
old English word — piebald — which means “white headed" rather
than hairless. Bald eagles build very large nests, sometimes
weighing as much as a ton. . . this explains the large nest
depicted on this figurine! Each Eagle Family Alley
Cat Figurine is $240.
Here's the perfect accent piece for your Fall
decor. . .
our 5.75" Opal Satin Ghost Figurine sports a wonderful
"Harvest Time" hand painted design by Kim Barley.
Kim adorned this Ghost
in a blue jacket with a checkerboard pattern and added
colorful sunflowers, cornstalks and two black cats
(with whimsical "not-so-amused" expressions).
Each cat is perched atop a pumpkin. Note the
toothy grin on the face of
the ghost. Each
Harvest Time Ghost Figurine is $115.

9.75" Favrene vase has been made even more stunning with a

was first made in the late 19th century.
Fenton's Favrene glass contains cobalt and
precious metals and must be worked under exacting conditions
of both heat and oxygen to coax out the perfect color. The color
effects form an iridescent silvery blue. The hour-glass shape
of this vase provides the perfect canvas for Cathy Mackey's
design which includes a babbling brook flowing through the
This vase was produced in a limited production run at the

Items featured this week.
This one-of-a-kind vase (approx. 11.75" tall)
in satin finished Rosalene glass by award-winning Fenton
designer Robin Spindler captures all the drama of a tense
moment, as a pair of adult elephants come to protect their
young offspring from two marauding leopards. We can almost
hear the trumpeting elephants and the growling leopards as the
scene unfolds before us. Robin's extraordinary artistic talent
and her meticulous hand painting skills are displayed to
perfection on this vase ... the details are simply amazing!
This one-of-a-kind vase is identified, signed and dated on the
underside: "Fenton 2017 'Not on My Watch' OOAK hand painted by
J. K. Spindler".
Fenton artist Michelle Kibbe captures all the magic and
emotions of an overcast day in her hand painted depiction of
two lighthouses, each on a lonely point somewhere on the oceanside. The gray clouds contrast wonderfully with the light
that illuminates the side of each lighthouse and the buildings
beside it. We can almost hear the wings of the gulls and their
sharp cries as they circle. This piece is made of Opal Satin
glass, and the black glass lid and base create the perfect
frame for the marvelous scene that Michelle has created and
hand painted (overall height is 10").
