Fenton Art Glass eBay Auctions. . .

Here's an opportunity to own a beautiful "one-of-a-kind" art glass creation or an item from Fenton's history through our weekly eBay auctions. This auction ends at noon (ET) on Wednesday, October 4. Items featured this week. . .

With classic Fenton Burmese glass for her canvas, Fenton artist Michelle Kibbe designed and hand painted this splendid one-of-a-kind vase (8.5" tall). The graceful shape of the vase provided ample room for "1, 2, 3 ... count them 5 adorable sleepy kitties! Each kitten is colorful and perfectly detailed, as Michelle's extraordinary hand painting talents and skills are shown to perfection. Note the "paw prints" that encircle the vase at top and bottom. Burmese glass contains pure gold, and careful reheating techniques by Fenton glassworkers create the distinctive pink blush that collectors love.

Here's a great opportunity to acquire a rainbow of Fenton Art Glass colors. These 17 glass objects (2.5" diameter) are "color test disks." When molten glass is being readied for a day's work or a new color is being made, Fenton chemists would gather just the right amount of glass and employ this metal former (8.5" long) or a similar tool to create a color test disk. The procedure was often carried out in the early morning hours so that adjustments could be made as needed. The light green disk in this assortment is dated 1962, and most of the rest of the disks have paper stickers or writing in black marker (some of these are quite legible but others are not). You'll see various shades of blue as well as green, orange, pink, ruby, etc. etc. Insofar as we can tell, these glass disks come from the 1960s-1990s time frame. One disk is dated 3-15-07. These color glass disks were stored in our glass technology research area, and we're please to make this assortment available.

Made by Fenton about 1997, this fabulous Cranberry Opalescent Coin Dot pitcher stands 9.75" tall (measured to the very top of the handle). Note the especially rich cranberry color on the interior of the pitcher and the extraordinarily graceful shape of the ribbed opalescent handle. The "saddle crimp" style is a real tribute to the skills of Fenton glassworkers. The Coin Dot pattern was first developed by Fenton Art Glass in the 1940s, and Cranberry Opalescent examples of Coin Dot soon became favorites among collectors nationwide. This copper printing plate was used in the printing of a Fenton catalog more than half a century ago! The copper plate measures 5.25" x 6.5" and the wood block is 7.5" x 7.75". The Coin Dot pieces depicted were in the Fenton line about 1947 to 1952. The copper plate has been cleaned, but it does have some light scratches on its surface. This auction ends at noon (ET) on Wednesday, October 4.
