eBay Auctions. . .
Here's an opportunity
to own a beautiful
glass creation through our weekly
eBay auctions. This auction ends at noon (ET) on Wednesday,
Items featured this week.
Here's a one-in-a-lifetime opportunity
to acquire the #1 SAMPLE of a wonderful item designed
and hand painted by award-winning Fenton artist Robin
Spindler. Made of lustrous black glass, this Ginger
Jar stands 8.25" tall, including its base and cap.
NOTE: It was a challenge to capture the true beauty of
this piece with photography. Robin's design features
lush jungle foliage, but the most remarkable aspect of
this piece is her meticulously hand painted depiction
of the Leopard. This majestic animal seems to come to
life as a result of Robin's amazing talents and
skills. This unique piece was also personally signed
by company President George Fenton and by director of
design Nancy Fenton. The outside bottom also carries
this lettering: "Designed by J. K. Spindler sample 1/4
hand painted by J. K. Spindler".
Wow, talk about understated elegance! This one-of-a-kind
Aubergine Satin trumpet vase (7.5" tall) created and hand
painted by Fenton artist Michelle Kibbe features a remarkably
delicate, highly-detailed floral motif that contrasts
beautifully with the glass. Note the graceful foliage amidst
the flowers and the meticulous beading ... all hand painted!
Burmese glass is a classic Fenton color, and this
one-of-a-kind 6" tall vase is a tribute to our glass chemists
and artists alike. Fenton Artist Michelle Kibbe created and
hand painted the lush foliage and floral motif featuring
purple Hydrangeas and delicate butterflies, and all the
details are simply remarkable.
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 crystal piece measures 4" by
3-3/8", and it will make a nice paperweight or accent piece to
display with a Fenton collection. There will be some tiny
nicks or other blemishes in this unique item. This crystal
piece has been personally signed by company President George
