Christmas in July Jewelry Specials!

 

We're closing out our Christmas in July Jewelry Specials with great discounts on
handcrafted beads and jewelry!
We offer these lovely handcrafted bead assortments,
a spacer accessory and pendant bracelets from our remaining inventory. 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. Because of the handmade process, size may vary slightly, but average 9/16" in diameter. Most of these beads have just one remaining in stock. Available while supplies last! NOTE: Please read ordering instructions below. Orders are no longer processed online through our shopping cart.

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 Glass, using the Fenton moulds, exclusively for the Fenton Gift Shop. However, the Iceberg Paperweight is a Mosser Glass product.

Our popular Snowman (4") and Snowlady (3.75") Opal Satin Figurines feature a fun design celebrating a favorite winter activity. . . ice skating! Michelle Kibbe's hand painted motif includes a jolly, whimsical group of ice skaters. She created a wintry sky background dotted with fluttering snowflakes. Holly sprigs decorate the hats of both figurines. Note the smiling faces of each figurine along with the colorful carrot nose! Each Skating Party Snowman and Snowlady Set is $140.


Michelle created this beautiful scene of purple roses on our 8.75" Opal Satin Vase. The large cluster of roses is hand painted on two sides of this vase. The center photo (above) shows the details of these lush blossoms. Michelle added delicate scroll and polka dot accents around the top edge of the piece with a  lovely green hue in the background. Each Purple Roses Vase is $160.

Kim Barley transformed our 3.5" Opal Satin Sitting Cat Figurine into a little black cat that is ready for Halloween festivities! This kitty is decked out with bright, bold striped socks in orange, black and white, a polka dotted bowtie and candy corn accents on the ears! A goldfish floats inside of the fish bowl that includes undersea foliage, a RIP tombstone and a pumpkin with a toothy grin. Kim hand lettered the word "BOO!" inside the fish bowl. This figurine will make the perfect accent piece for your Halloween display! Each Fish Bowl Boo! Sitting Cat Figurine is $80.

 

Pre-orders for the Skating Party Snow Couple, Purple Roses Vase and Fish Bowl Boo! Sitting Cat Figurine will be accepted until midnight (ET) on Monday, July 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.

Robin Spindler continues her wonderful "prehistoric" design theme with another depiction of the Brachiosaurus on a crystal Iceberg Paperweight. Made by Mosser, this 6" wide x 5" tall paperweight provides an excellent canvas for Robin's hand painted dinosaur standing amongst the lush vegetation. Vibrant orange and yellow flowers are intertwined with the green foliage. A golden-orange full moon. . . or perhaps a distant planet . . . shines in the background. Robin's painting technique creates a three-dimensional effect. Different views are shown below in the photo below.

Each Full Moon Brachiosaurus Iceberg Paperweight is $95.

Another of our new shapes for Limited Edition offerings is this 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 Robin Spindler that complements the Iceberg Paperweight. She hand painted the body in plum and brown hues and added wide, white accent stripes and speckle accents. The expression on the face is sure to make you smile! Each White Striped Brachio Dinosaur Figurine is $80.

A cluster of hand painted acorns is nestled amongst the brown-tipped back feathers on this 5" Opal Satin Mallard Figurine. Designed by Michelle Kibbe, this figurine will make a wonderful addition to any figurine collection or as a gift for the duck enthusiast. Three different views of her design are shown in the photo above. Each Acorns Mallard Figurine is $75.

 

Pre-orders for the Full Moon Brachiosaurus Iceberg Paperweight, White Striped Brachio Dinosaur Figurine and Acorns Mallard Figurine will be accepted until midnight (ET) on Wednesday, August 1, 2018. To pre-order any of these Limited Editions, please contact Fenton Gift Shop: 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 unique items from Fenton's history through our weekly eBay auctions. These Fenton Art Glass eBay auctions will end at 2 p.m. (ET) on Wednesday, August 1. Items featured this week. . .


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 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 demolition is now complete, 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 Blue. 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.

Here's a splendid one-of-a-kind hand painted iceberg paperweight (4" tall) from Fenton artist Michelle Kibbe. She has depicted a Palomino horse in wonderfully realistic detail. The Palomino is known to be a strong, sturdy, beautiful and versatile horse. Famous Palomino horses include Trigger, Trigger Junior and Mr. Ed. You may just want to reach out and stroke the horse's neck! This paperweight is Opal (opaque white) glass, made at Mosser Glass, and the front was satin finished to provide the background for Michelle's hand painting.
 

Here's a one-in-a-lifetime opportunity to acquire a unique piece of Fenton history - an original brick - combined with the skills and talents of a Fenton artist. Michelle Kibbe designed and hand painted this splendid scene of a skilled glassworker (called a "finisher") at work bringing a piece of glass to its final shape. Note the baseball cap and the clothing depicted, all of which remind us of the sights of glassmaking and the wonderful guided tours that so many enjoyed for decades at the Fenton Art Glass factory. This "Athens Block" brick (8.67" long, 3.75" tall, 9.7 lbs.) was recovered from the Fenton factory site during the recent demolition of the plant, so it has the look of its 110+ years, as you can see in the photos that show all sides of this brick. Our research into the history of bricks from the Athens Brick Co. of Athens, Ohio, revealed that these Athens Block bricks were used in the construction of the original Fenton Art Glass Company plant during the fall of 1906. This unique hand painted brick is identified, dated and signed by Michelle. These Fenton Art Glass eBay auctions will end at 2 p.m. on Wednesday, August 1, 2018.
