Panda fans will want to add these two fabulous
glass creations to their collection. Designed by Michelle
Kibbe, the 11" Opal Satin Vase features a wonderful hand
painted scene of a Giant Panda reclining amongst the Bamboo with
China's Great Wall in the background. The 3.5" Opal Satin
Giant Panda Bear Figurine is simply adorable, especially the
expression on that face! Note the foliage accents on the ears!
Did you know. . . Pandas can eat

the size of a pencil! They are also born blind and only open
their eyes six to eight weeks after birth.
Each Bamboo Panda Vase is $160. Each Bamboo
Panda Bear Figurine is $75.

this latest Mouse figurine from Kim Barley. Kim created a

grin! Each Hello Fall Mouse Figurine is $80.

Robin Spindler continues the popular "Chessie
Cat" design theme with this hand painted motif on our 11"
Opal Satin Alley Cat Figurine.
The Alley Cat figurine represents the
"Mama" cat to two tabby "Chessie" kittens, each one
snuggled in a blue blankie.

This 11" Opal Satin Vase provides a
wonderful canvas for Michelle Kibbe's scene of an "Elk
in Winter". Michelle's hand painted panoramic winter
landscape includes a rustic barn, fence and bare trees
with blue skies and mountains in the distance. A
majestic "Bull" Elk stands atop a rock observing his
winter feeding grounds. Michelle's hand painted
details are true to life and this vase will make a
Did you know. . . Elk are
also called wapiti, a Native American word
meaning “light-colored deer.” Larger than most of
their deer relatives, a bull (male) elk's antlers may
reach 4 feet above its head, so that the animal stands
9 feet tall. Bull elk lose their antlers each March
and begin to grow them back in May in preparation for
the late-summer breeding season. In the winter, elk
gather into larger herds, with males and females
remaining separate. Herds return to lower valley
pastures where they spend the season pawing through
snow to browse on grass or settling for shrubs that
stand clear of the snow cover. Each
Elk in Winter Vase is $190.
Kim Barley's delightful "Pine Tree"
Penguin is sure to bring a smile to the young and
young-at-heart! Great gift for the figurine
Kim hand painted a green and light
yellow striped sweater with a red heart on the
right side. A green snow-covered pine tree also
adorns the lower front of this 4-3/8" figurine. Each
Pine Tree Penguin Figurine is $80.
Pre-orders for the
Chessie Cats' Mama
Elk in Winter Vase
and Pine Tree Penguin Figurine will be accepted until midnight
(ET) on Wednesday, August 30, 2017.

Items featured this week.
Rosalene glass is a classic Fenton
color, and this one-of-a-kind 8.75” tall vase is a
tribute to our glass chemists, glassworkers and
artists alike. The vase is satin finished. Note the
distinctive top crimp. Artist Michelle Kibbe created
and hand painted a magnificent scene of two
hummingbirds sipping nectar from pink trumpet-shaped
flowers. The scene encircles the vase. Her hand
painted details are simply remarkable.
If you like lighthouses, you'll love this wonderful
one-of-a-kind vase (7.25" tall) that was created and
hand painted by Fenton artist Michelle Kibbe. The Opal
Satin glass (made by Mosser using the Fenton mould) is
the perfect canvas for her depictions of four
different lighthouses and their respective
surroundings. All the details are meticulously
executed, and the colors are vivid and vibrant. No
matter which of the four panels you see, you'll enjoy
a view of a lighthouse!
What kind of Duck is this? Award-winning Fenton
designer J. K. “Robin” Spindler smiled and said "It's
a mystery duck" when we asked her! Actually, it's a
one-of-a-kind Duck in Opal Satin glass, made by Mosser
Glass, using the Fenton mould. Designed and hand
painted by Robin, you'll like the airbrushed brown
tones, and the hand painted scrolling and "feathers"
are just delightful. As always, the eyes are
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 4-3/8” at its widest point
and is 1-3/4” tall. It has color swirls of reddish
black color as well as smooth indentation on one side.
This glass weighs about 1.5 pounds and 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
