Fenton Art Glass Presents. . . Fenton Beads. . . While Supplies Last!

We are pleased to offer selections from our remaining inventory of handcrafted beads. Each bead has an approx. 3/16'' sterling silver core embossed with Fenton USA. Because of the handmade process, bead size may vary from 1/2'' to 5/8'' in diameter and and will fit most jewelry accessories. Beads with a hand applied decoration are initialed by the artist who completed it. In an age of mass production, Fenton remained committed to honoring the tradition of expressive, handmade creations.

 

Each Fenton Art Glass Made in America bead bears the signature of handcraftsmanship; those slight variations that convey distinction, character and charm. Many of Fenton's unique glass colors and historic treatments were used to create these beads. There are fewer than five remaining of each bead shown below. . . available while supplies last at a 50% discount! Please specify the item# and/or name of the bead when you email your order.

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 handcrafted by Mosser, using the Fenton moulds, exclusively for the Fenton Gift Shop. Included in this week's offering are three NEW shapes: a Hurricane Lamp with Base, a Vase and a Dinosaur Figurine.

 

Fenton Gift Shop is pleased to now offer the 10.5" Opal Satin Hurricane Lamp (includes base). The shade is 9.125" tall. This shape has been included in the Fenton line for many decades, with some styles dating as far back as the 1930s.

 

Fenton designer Michelle Kibbe created a beautiful design of a stylized Peacock on a branch. The base is shades of green and Michelle added delicate bands on the shade in green and berry colors. Her hand painted details are delicate and well-executed. Additional views are shown below. The base has a 1" diameter area suitable for a pillar candle (see inset photo below). We tried a battery operated tea light and it cast a soft, warm glow, but proved challenging to photograph. Each Peacock Hurricane Lamp is $150.

This 5.5" Opal Satin Owl Figurine has a lovely pond scene designed by Michelle Kibbe. Her design includes a large dragonfly hovering above a Lotus Blossom flower.

Note the delicate  wings on the dragonfly. Michelle added green scroll details around the base, a gray body and wings with feathery tips, and marvelous details on those large eyes. Each Dragonfly Owl Figurine is $90.

We named this 3.5" Opal Satin Sitting Bear Figurine "Cubby". Hand painted by Michelle Kibbe, this little bear cub sports a red neckerchief, a green camp uniform shirt topped off with a matching green cap. Note the soft brown "pads" on the paws and how Michelle allowed for an ear to peek through the cap! The expression on the face is adorable! Each Cubby Sitting Bear Figurine is $75.

 

Pre-orders for the Peacock Hurricane Lamp, Dragonfly Owl and Cubby Sitting Bear Figurines will be accepted until midnight (ET) on Monday, June 18, 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!

Another new shape for our Limited Edition offerings is this 8.75" Vase, handcrafted in Opal Satin. This shape provides a wonderful canvas for Robin Spindler's "Bengal Cat" design. Her hand painted scene of lush green vegetation and vibrant orange flower blossoms encircles the vase, providing the perfect frame for the "Bengal Cat" focal point. Robin's hand painted details on the cat are meticulous and true to life! Each Bengal Cat Vase is $170.

 

Did you know. . . The "Bengal" cat breed is well known as the only successful pairing of a wild Asian Leopard Cat with a domestic cat. With a long, lithe body, large oval eyes, and a dense coat of contrasting spotted/marbled markings, the Bengal cat resembles a tiny jungle cat. Bengal cats may possess a trait called "glittering", which makes the lush coat appear to have been dusted with gold or pearl. Breeders say that Bengal cats make good pets, especially with children, since its energetic nature makes it very playful.

 

Robin also created the perfect companion for our Bengal Cat Vase. . . a figurine with the same name! Handcrafted in Opal Satin, Robin transformed our 5" stylized cat into a watchful "Bengal Cat". Note the distinctive "Bengal" markings of marbling and spots. And those eyes are mesmerizing! Shown below are more views of this Limited Edition figurine. . . the perfect gift for cat enthusiasts or as an addition to any figurine collection! Each Bengal Stylized Cat Figurine  is $100.

We welcome another shape from the past to our Fenton Gift Shop Limited Edition offerings. . . the Dinosaur Figurine! This 3.25" tall figurine, designed by Fenton sculptor Suzi Whitaker, was first offered in 2007. Now hand crafted in Opal Satin glass, this popular figurine features a hand painted design by Kim Barley. Her design, combined with the whimsical style of the figurine, is sure to become a collector favorite once more. Kim created wonderful brown markings on the back, added colorful flowers and foliage on the sides and a small hollow log with a sprouting mushroom along the tail. Note the whimsical expression on that smiling face! Each Dyno the Dinosaur Figurine is $75.

Pre-orders for the Bengal Cat Vase and Bengal Cat Stylized Cat Figurine and Dyno the Dinosaur Figurine will be accepted until midnight (ET) on Wednesday, June 20th, 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.

Fenton Art Glass eBay Auctions. . .

Here's your opportunity to own a beautiful "one-of-a-kind" art glass creation or some Fenton history through our weekly eBay auctions. These Fenton Art Glass eBay auctions will end at 2 p.m. (ET) on Wednesday, June 20th. Items featured this week. . .

 

Here's a simply wonderful, one-of-a-kind hand painted lamp (19" tall, 7" shade) that's a real tribute to the talents and skills of Fenton artist Michelle Kibbe. With transparent Violet glass for her canvas, Michelle designed and hand painted this splendid scene of Ruby-throated Hummingbirds hovering in search of nectar amidst clusters of lush Hydrangeas and other flowers. All of the details are just perfect ... from the Hummingbirds to the scrollwork and all other elements. Every brushstroke is meticulously done. The satin-finished background of the violet glass shade is augmented by a transparent band that completely encircles the shade. Note the high quality Victorian-style brass colored hardware, too (you'll love the seated cherub!). This one-of-a-kind hand painted lamp uses a maximum 60 watt bulb (not included).

Here’s a unique opportunity to acquire a piece of Fenton history! This 8" x 10" borderless black-and-white print was made from an original negative in the Fenton Art Glass Company archives. The photo was taken on February 28, 1943, when six Fenton employees then serving in the armed forces during World War II happened to be on furlough and were at home in Williamstown. The servicemen are in uniform in the front row, and committee members of the American Flint Glass Workers Local Union No. 22 are in the back row along with Fenton Art Glass Co. management officials. Complete captions will be supplied to the winning bidder for this photo.

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. We call this color "Colonial Amber," because the pressed glass panel was made with ruby glass and only the thicker central area has the red hues characteristic of ruby. There are a few minor chips near the edges on the back side of this panel. This colored glass panel has been signed by Fenton Art Glass Co. president George Fenton and by Fenton Gift Shop president Randy Fenton, and a certificate of authenticity is also included.
