NEW Limited Editions 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 of our talented designers. These Limited Edition pieces were made by Mosser, using the Fenton moulds, exclusively for the Fenton Gift Shop.

Michelle Kibbe's colorful tropical scene suits our 11" Opal Satin Alley Cat Figurine perfectly. We've received requests for different birds and waterfowl, and Michelle has delivered with a bright pink Flamingo posing in a serene tropical paradise. She did a marvelous job using the shape of this figurine for the hand painted background and foliage details. Each Pink Flamingo Alley Cat Figurine is $195.

Michelle Kibbe once again creatively uses the shape of this 5.75" Opal Satin Owl Figurine to transform it into a wood-textured background for her hand painted design featuring a red-roofed birdhouse, colorful Spring flowers and a hovering butterfly. Each Woody Birdhouse Owl Figurine is $90.

NOW AVAILABLE! Sure to delight the young and the young-at-heart, we are pleased to once again offer our 4" long Turtle Figurine. The mould for this figurine was designed in 2001 by Fenton sculptor Jon Saffell for the Fenton Art Glass "Into the Pond" collection. Robin Spindler chose a popular "pet" for the hand painted design on our 4" long Opal Satin Turtle Figurine, the "Red-Eared Slider". The details are true-to-life.  Did you know. . .  A Red-Eared Slider hatches out of the egg looking like a miniature adult and will become either a male or female depending on the temperature within the nest. Females result when the temperature is warmer. Red-eared Sliders live around ponds, swim well underwater and communicate with touch and vibrations. Each Red-Eared Slider Turtle Figurine is $75.

 

Pre-orders for the Pink Flamingo Alley Cat, Woody Birdhouse Owl and Red-Eared Slider Turtle Figurines will be accepted until midnight (ET) on Monday, April 30, 2018. To pre-order these Limited Editions, please contact Fenton Gift Shop at 1-800-319-7793, ext. 342 or email purchasing@fentongiftshop.com and include the names of the items you want to purchase in the subject line as well as your full name and daytime phone number. You may also request we add your email address to our mailing list for future Limited Edition specials!

Michelle Kibbe created a lovely "Welcome Spring" scene on our impressive 11" Opal Satin Vase featuring a Western Meadowlark posing on a fencepost. She added lots of colorful blooming flowers and thin pinstripe accents around the top section of the vase with a blue-green background. Did you know. . . The Western Meadowlark is a familiar songbird across the western two-thirds of the USA. It is the state bird of Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oregon, and Wyoming. In the same family as blackbirds and orioles, the Western Meadowlark is often seen perched on fence posts in grasslands and agricultural areas singing its distinct flute-like song. Each Western Meadowlark Vase is $180.

Kim Barley's delightful "Tippy toes" design on our 2.75" Opal Satin Mouse Figurine is sure to bring a smile to one and all!

The hand painted details are marvelous. . . from the musical notes, purple and blue dress with white ruffle and the heart-shaped necklace to the vibrant flowers and butterflies. As always, Kim added a delightful expression! Note those Buster Brown style shoes in brilliant blue!
Each Tippy toes Mouse Figurine is $75.

We continue Fenton Gift Shop's "Butterfly 'n Blooms" Series with Michelle Kibbe's Monarch Butterfly on our 3.75" Opal Satin Egg on Stand. Brilliant orange-and-black monarchs are easily recognized. Their migration route takes them as far north as Canada and as far south as Mexico City. A single monarch can travel up to thousands of miles. One of the greatest natural phenomena in the insect world is the monarch migration. Even though they have never made the journey before, they follow an internal "compass" that points them in the right direction each Spring and Fall. Michelle's rendition of the Monarch Butterfly is beautiful! Her design features a colorful hand painted Monarch Butterfly seeking nectar on golden yellow blossoms flowers.
Each Butterfly 'n Blooms - Monarch Egg on Stand is $75.

Fenton Art Glass eBay Auctions. . .
Here's your opportunity to own a beautiful "one-of-a-kind" art glass creation through our weekly eBay auctions. The Fenton Art Glass eBay auctions will end at 2 p.m. (ET) on Wednesday, May 2. Items featured this week. . .

Here's a great chance to acquire a unique combination: an Orange Thumbprint pattern basket, made c. 1970, with the handler's mark of Fred Bruce and the personal signatures of Fenton Art Glass Company president George Fenton and Fenton Gift Shop president Randy Fenton along with the date "2018".

 

The Orange glass color was introduced in the 1960s, and the Thumbprint pattern was a popular Fenton line in the 1960s-1970s. Orange is a difficult color to produce consistently, but this basket is a real beauty.

Skilled glassworker Fred Bruce was a longtime Fenton employee, and his distinctive handler's mark shows up perfectly on both ends of the handle on this basket (Fenton historian James Measell says that Fred Bruce's handler's mark is distinctive: "If the mark looks like a fishbone, it's Fred's"). The signatures of George Fenton and Randy Fenton were personally signed with an engraver, as was the 2018 date.


Here's a great opportunity to acquire a unique item from Fenton history! This metal plate was used in the printing of glassware labels for the Fenton Art Glass Company. This curved metal plate measures 1.675" long and 1" high. Because of the printing process, all the lettering is "reversed" so that it will read properly on the printed glassware labels. This curved metal plate created glassware labels that read as follows: AUTHENTIC FENTON HANDMADE enclosed within a thin ribbon. Based on materials in the Fenton Archives, we know that glassware labels with this printed design were used from about 1949 to 1953.

Here's a great opportunity to own a piece of Fenton history! In the mid-1960s, the Fenton Art Glass Co. office area and the the Fenton Gift Shop underwent considerable remodeling. Attractive brick facing was constructed on exterior areas, and the iconic "Clarence" figure was mounted above the gift shop entrance. Colored glass panels, made by skilled glassworkers at Fenton, were placed around the entrance door to the Fenton Gift Shop and around the entrance door to the reception area of the Fenton Art Glass Co. The Fenton factory is currently undergoing demolition, but the colored glass panels have been saved. This colored glass panel measures 11.75" tall by 8.75" wide. This colored glass panel is Colonial Green, a popular glass color made by Fenton Art Glass in the mid-1960s. This colored glass panel has been signed and dated 2018 by Fenton Art Glass Co. president George Fenton and by Fenton Gift Shop president Randy
Fenton, and a certificate of authenticity is also included.
These Fenton Art Glass eBay auctions will end at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, May 2, 2018.
