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, with the
exception of the Fairy Light Lighthouse, were handcrafted by Mosser Glass, using the Fenton moulds,
exclusively for the Fenton Gift Shop.
The impressive size (10.75") of this
Opal Satin Vase provides an excellent canvas for
Michelle Kibbe's hand painted scene of the chatty and
colorful Blue Jays. The details are amazing! The birds
are perched on berry-laden branches. Michelle added
lush green leaves and a nice landscape in the
Two Blue Jays are on the front of the vase. Did
you know. . .
Blue Jays aren’t actually blue. In
fact, the pigment in their feathers is brown.
Scattering light in the structural parts of the
feathers causes us to see the blue coloration.
Each Blue Jays Vase is $165.
The animals of "Noah's Ark" come to
life with Michelle Kibbe's hand painted scene on our
popular Chessie Cat Covered Box. She created a
wonderful "two-by-two" scene of animals aboard the ark
on our 8" Opal Satin Chessie Cat Covered Box.
This popular "Chessie" cat character was used as a
symbol of the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway. They used
this artwork with their advertising slogan that when
traveling on their railway you would "sleep like a
kitten". In addition to the artist's signature, the
base of this box is embossed with the words "Chessie
The top photo shows the paired animals
depicted on this Limited Edition set. A curious
giraffe checks out the sleeping kitten while two elephant trunks
(note the white tusks) reach out of one window. An ostrich pair stretch
their longs necks as they search the horizon and a zebra pair
peek out from another window. Michelle completes her
scene with a thatched roof for the lid and blue and
white ocean waves along the base. Each Noah's Ark Chessie Cat
Covered Box is $150.
A great addition to any Halloween display,
this 5.75" Opal Satin Ghost Figurine was designed by Kim
Barley in her popular whimsical theme. Our ghost
sports a dangling spider as well as a cast of charming
Halloween characters including grinning pumpkins,
an adorable scraggly black cat and as always, that smiling face of
the ghost! Note the moon in the background of soft hues of
blue, green and yellow. Kim hand
lettered the words "Oct. 31st" on the back of the figurine
(see the inset photo). Sure to become a favorite piece in
your seasonal display! Each Too cute to
Spook Ghost Figurine is $115.

Visitors to Fenton Gift Shop have been admiring this
vase. . . a new shape for our Limited Edition
offerings. This vase has been receiving several
comments, testimony to the artistic talent of Robin
Spindler! Her hand painted details are meticulous and
breathtaking to behold. Her scene features three
ruby-throated hummingbirds seeking nectar from the
lush red-orange color of the Hibiscus flowers. The
design encircles this 11.25" Opal Satin vase. Each Hummingbird
Vase is $225.
Robin Spindler has created another perfect companion for
Vase (featured in the June 15th newsletter). We named
this one "Jungle Cat".
Robin has transformed this Opal Satin 5" Stylized Cat Figurine into a black cat sitting
amongst a lush jungle landscape.
Her design features vibrant orange flowers and green
foliage. Robin added pink accents on the ears and a
pink nose. Note those golden eyes! Each Jungle
Stylized Cat Figurine is $95.
You'll feel like you're at the beach
whenever you view this Lighthouse Fairy Light! Michelle Kibbe
created a wonderful scene of dolphins leaping out of the
water. She used soft shades
of blue-green for the water and sky. Palm trees frame the
frolicking dolphin scene. Michelle created the warm glow
of a sunset on two sides of the base. This set
was handcrafted in Opal Satin glass (5" base) and crystal
(3" top) at Fenton Collectibles using the Fenton Art Glass
moulds that were not used for production before
glassmaking halted at Fenton in 2011. You'll also receive
a battery-operated tea light with each Lighthouse that
fits perfectly on the top of the base in a recessed area,
which measures approximately 1-1/5" diameter. Each
Dolphin Delight Lighthouse Fairy Light is $125.

Here's a wonderful one-of-a-kind hand painted
vase (7.25" tall) in Burmese glass by talented Fenton artist
Michelle Kibbe. Her hand painted Cardinals are remarkably true
to life, so much so that we can almost hear their distinctive
chirps! A pair of Cardinals are perched amidst lush foliage
and delicate flowers, and a single male Cardinal is on the
reverse side of the vase. Burmese is a classic Fenton glass
color, and pure gold in the glass batch creates the delicate
pink blush when the glass is carefully reheated by our
glassworkers. Note the extraordinarily delicate tri-crimp
finish, a real tribute to Fenton's skilled glassworkers. This
one-of-a-kind hand painted vase is identified, dated and
signed on the underside: "hand painted by M. Kibbe 2018 OOAK".
Here's a wonderful one-of-a-kind hand painted Sea Turtle
figurine (4" long) designed and hand painted by award winning
Fenton artist Robin Spindler. The Sea Turtle is Opal Satin
glass, and Robin's "true to life" hand painting is simply
dazzling! Every brushstroke is just perfect, and the colors
are remarkable for their clarity and sense of depth. If you
collect Fenton animal figurines, don't miss the chance to add
this one-of-a-kind Sea Turtle to your collection. This
one-of-a-kind figurine is identified, dated and signed on the
underside: "Fenton 2018 J K Spindler OOAK".
Here's an opportunity to acquire an assortment of Fenton glass
rods on a wooden base for display. These glass rods are color
samples of Fenton glass from the 1960s. The rods were made
under the direction of glass chemist Charles “Charlie” Goe,
who was employed at the Fenton Art Glass Co. from September 1,
1960 until his death at age 40 in October 1969. In addition to
his day-to-day duties involving glass batch mixing and other
aspects of production, Charlie was a research chemist. In the
1960s, company president Frank M. Fenton was very interested
in having Fenton recreate historic glass colors such as
Burmese from the 1880s, Bastow’s opaque pink from about 1900,
and Jacob Rosenthal’s Chocolate from the earliest years of the
twentieth century. Goe worked on developing these glass colors
during his time at Fenton, and his greatest achievements were
creating formulas for Fenton’s Burmese glass and Rosalene
glass. Tragically, his success with Burmese came just prior to
his sudden death in 1969. The wooden base measures 8.75" x
6.75" (you could paint or stain this base if you wish). This
assortment of 22 glass color samples includes the following
Fenton glass colors: light Chocolate, dark Chocolate, cobalt
blue, opaque dark yellow, Pekin Blue, Jonquil, dark amber,
opaque light green, opaque light yellow, light yellow,
Burmese, dark ruby, Rosalene, opaque light orange/red slag,
opaque dark brown, opaque red, emerald green, opaque light
pink, light blue, opaque white, light ruby and smoke. The
glass rods are arranged in the form of a block "F" and fit
into holes drilled in the wood (some of the rods fit more
tightly than others, and these make for an interesting
display). These glass rods were made by gathering a small
quantity of glass from a “test pot” on a punty and rolling it
on a steel plate called a marver. Because of the process used
to make them, the rods will vary a bit in length and in
diameter; typically, each rod is slightly more than 2-1/2”
long and about 3/8” in diameter.
