NEW Limited Editions from Fenton Gift Shop. . .
We are pleased to offer these 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. The Cobalt Iceberg Paperweight was made by Mosser Glass. The other Limited Edition items were handcrafted by Mosser Glass, using the Fenton moulds, exclusively for the Fenton Gift Shop.

Glass eggs have been produced by American manufacturers since the early 1900s. The Fenton Art Glass "5140" Egg on Stand was produced in many colors and patterns during the 1970s and 80s. Fenton began a Collectible Eggs series in 1991.

This
3.75" Opal Satin Egg on Stand features the first in a series of  "Lighthouse" designs by Michelle Kibbe. Several sailboats as well as landforms are in the background. Each Sailboats & Lighthouse Egg on Stand is $75.

Michelle Kibbe's hand painted "Stardust" design on our 5.75" Black Ghost Figurine is sure to delight one and all! The Ghost has a big smile. The arms are spread wide with floating golden stars and glittering stardust. A stylized black cat sits near a blue witch's hat and appears to be checking out that smiling pumpkin behind the window. Note the stars and design accents on the front and back of this figurine. Each Stardust Ghost Figurine is $110.

Our impressive 11.5" Opal Satin Vase makes the perfect piece to add to your Halloween display! You'll love Kim Barley's "Haunted Mansion" design. . . from the weathered mansion complete with barred door and windows, evil eyes peering from a window, a silhouetted figurine behind another window to the star accents and ghost flying up from the chimney. Kim added marvelous details including a gnarly tree, flying bats, a full moon, and tombstones to complete this piece. Each Haunted Mansion Vase is $240.

 

Pre-orders for the Sailboats & Lighthouse Egg on Stand, Stardust Ghost Figurine and Haunted Mansion Vase will be accepted until midnight (ET) on Monday, August 27th, 2018. To pre-order these Limited Editions, contact Fenton Gift Shop at 1-800-319-7793, ext. 342 or send us an 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 so we may follow-up on your request.

Robin Spindler created a realistic scene of a Baltimore Oriole and its nest on our approximately 9" Opal Satin Vase. A lovely sky blue provides the background of the bird perched on an "orange feeder" hanging from a tree. The unique Baltimore Oriole nest is depicted on one side of this vase.

Did you know. . .
Baltimore Orioles were so named because of their bright orange and black colors. The Baltimore Oriole is also Maryland's state bird. The bird's colors are the same colors as the family crest of the Second Baron Baltimore, one of Marylandís founders. Orioles sometimes feed in a clever way. The bird will stick its closed beak into a soft fruit, such as the orange depicted in the above scene, then open its mouth, which creates a cup of fruit juice that it then drinks with its tongue. Some say that the nest of a Baltimore Oriole resembles a stuffed sock. The nest hangs high in the air at the very edge of a tree branch to keep predators away. It can take a female as long as 15 days to construct the nest, which is woven out of various fibers like animal fur, twine, wool, bark and other materials.
Each Baltimore Oriole Vase is $170.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Kim Barley continues a popular Halloween design by re-creating it on our 5" Stylized Cat Figurine. This design was most recently featured on our Sitting Cat Figurine (July 27th newsletter). This Cat sports a large orange bowtie with black polka dots, candy corn striped ears and socks and big blue eyes. Kim added Moon and stars accents and a goldfish bowl with hand lettered "Boo!" and a grinning pumpkin. Each Fishbowl Boo! Stylized Cat Figurine is $90.

Robin Spindler was inspired by a Bible verse for this hand painted design of a Cowboy in the desert. A full moon and shooting star are in the background of this 7" Cobalt Iceberg Paperweight, which was handcrafted at Mosser Glass. The Iceberg Paperweight is approximately 5" wide at the base.

Robin created a silhouette style for the cowboy and his horse. Note the white paint outlines which lend an almost three- dimensional effect. She added a landscape laden with pink cactus flowers to complete this scene.


(
King James version ─ To the chief Musician, A Psalm of David.) Psalm 19:1 ─ The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork. Each Cowboy - Psalm 19:1 Iceberg Paperweight is $100.

 

Pre-orders for the Baltimore Oriole Vase, Fishbowl Boo! Stylized Cat Figurine and the Cowboy - Psalm 19:1 Iceberg Paperweight will be accepted until midnight (ET) on Wednesday, August 29th, 2018.

Fenton Art Glass eBay Auctions. . .

Here's your opportunity to own a "one-of-a-kind" art glass creation through our weekly eBay auctions. These Fenton Art Glass eBay auctions will end at 2 p.m. (ET) on Wednesday, August 29. Items featured this week. . .

The wonderful Alley Cat is among the best-loved collectibles from Fenton Art Glass, and this one-of-a-kind hand painted Chocolate glass Alley Cat (11" tall) by artist Michelle Kibbe is sure to find a place is someone's collection! Michelle created and hand painted the whimsical green frog that enjoys dining on toadstools, and the overall scene is sure to delight all those who will see it in your home. Note the accents added to the Alley Cat's mischievous grin, too! Chocolate glass is a classic Fenton color, first perfected by Jacob Rosenthal in late 1900 when he was employed in Greentown, Indiana, and then made at Fenton in 1907-1909 when Rosenthal was Fenton factory manager and chemist. Chocolate glass is sensitive to heat, and the resulting light/dark portions on this Alley Cat are simply outstanding.


Fenton artist Michelle Kibbe loves flowers and butterflies, and this one-of-a-kind basket (8" tall) is a great example of her hand painting talents and skills. The floral motif consists of remarkably delicate flowers in white and blue tones, along with realistic green leaves and foliage. A hand painted butterfly hovers over a group of flowers. Every brushstroke is meticulously done, and the hand painted decoration completely encircles the basket. This Opal Satin basket has a ribbed pattern inside, and the edge features a double crimp style. Note the fine rib twisted handle, a real tribute to the splendid skills of the glassworkers at Fenton Art Glass.

Award winning Fenton artist Robin Spindler has used her design talents and sandcarving skills to create a splendid one-of-a-kind bowl (3" tall with 3" diameter opening) in Favrene glass. Robin's design of intricate stylized leaves completely encircles the piece, and the vivid iridescence of Favrene glass is shown to absolute perfection! This piece will display beautifully by itself, but it could also be used for arrangements of artificial or dried flowers as well as for potpourri. Favrene glass, developed by Fenton chemists after years of experimentation, contains pure silver in the glass batch, and special reheating techniques mastered by Fenton glassworkers bring forth the vivid iridescence.
These Fenton Art Glass eBay auctions will end at 2 p.m. (ET) on Wednesday, August 29, 2018.
