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 2018 by one of our talented designers. These Limited Edition items were handcrafted by Mosser Glass, using the Fenton moulds, exclusively for the Fenton Gift Shop.


Michelle Kibbe's creative talent shines on these three Limited Edition selections! She created a "Pine Cones & Chickadee" design on three popular shapes: a Vase, an Owl Figurine and a Chessie Cat Covered Box. Her hand painted details are simply marvelous. These pieces are sold separately as detailed below or take the Labor Day Special for this trio ─ $410 for all three pieces!



Our 10.75" Opal Satin Vase provides the canvas for Michelle Kibbe's hand painted "Pine Cones & Chickadee" design. A wonderful landscape encircles the vase, with pine trees and fence posts as the background for the chickadees and tree branches of berries and pine cones. Each Pine Cones & Chickadee Vase is $190.

 

Michelle continues her design theme on our 5.5" Opal Satin Owl with pine tree branches on the front and back of the figurine. A chickadee rests on a branch at the base of the figurine. Note the feather details. Each Pine Cones & Chickadee Owl Figurine is $95.

 

Our 8" Chessie Cat Covered Box is the perfect third piece to complete this "Pine Cones & Chickadee" trio.

"Chessie" was a popular cat character used in advertising the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway (C & O). Fenton created this item especially for the C & O company. This Chessie box has embossed lettering ("Chessie by Fenton") on the underside as well as Michelle's signature.
Each Pine Cones & Chickadee Chessie Cat Covered Box is $150

Kim Barley welcomes the changing of the seasons with her hand painted "Harvest Kitty" design on our 10.5" Opal Satin Hurricane Candle Lamp (shade is 9").

 

Tall sunflowers appear to gently sway behind a wooden fence that frames Kim's delightful scene of an adorable gray and white kitten playing inside of a flower pot.

 

A harvested basket of apples and two pumpkins rest nearby. Kim added black and white checkerboard details to the bottom of the Hurricane shade that rests on the black base. Note the insert for a taper candle on the base section.

 

Each Harvest Time Kitten Vase is $150.
 

This impressive 11.75" Opal Satin Vase provides the perfect canvas for Robin Spindler's aquatic scene of a Map Turtle, Pumpkinseed Fish and Sunfish. She added splendid underwater flora and fauna. Robin's hand painted details are marvelous to behold. . . from the creatures to the vibrant pink floating Waterlilies. Shown below are more details of this vase, as well as close-up views. Did you notice the silhouette of the man fishing in the water?

 

Did you know. . . Map Turtle markings include distinct skin coloration, ranging from dark olive to black with thin yellow, green or orange stripes. A crescent-shaped light spot is located behind the eye. One of the prettiest of all the North American panfish, the Pumpkinseed fish is a distinctive and colorful fish. Sometimes called the sunfish, they are strong swimmers. Pumpkinseed spend much of their life searching for food by going from one weed bed to the next.
Each Map Turtle Vase is $240.

 

The perfect companion piece for the Map Turtle Vase is this 4" long Map Turtle Figurine! Robin's hand painted details are true-to-life with unique colors and designs on the shell and feet. Note the detail around the red eye!
Each Map Turtle Figurine is $80.

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, September 5. Items featured this week. . .

Award-winning Fenton designer Robin Spindler created and hand painted this splendid Opal Satin vase (11.5" tall) with a most interesting scene. The vase was handcrafted, using the Fenton Art Glass mould, at Mosser Glass exclusively for Fenton Gift Shop. This intriguing scene features a mother giraffe that is much, much taller than her calf, so Robin hand painted her body on one side of the vase and then completed the scene with the mother nuzzling her offspring on the other side! Yellow flowers and green foliage add to the moment, as do a few hovering dragonflies. Robin added tiger stripes around the base to complete this piece. All the colors are true to life, the details simply exquisite, and this vase is a real testament to Robin's talents, skills and ingenuity in creating hand painted motifs for Fenton glass.

You'll want to welcome winter and the holiday season with this splendid one-of-a-kind hand painted hurricane lamp from Fenton artist Michelle Kibbe. She was inspired to design this beautiful scene for the winter season on our 10.5" Opal Satin Hurricane Candle Lamp (shade is 9" tall). Michelle's hand painted Cardinal is simply remarkable as are the details on the lush white flowers, the holly sprigs and red berries, and the graceful red ribbons. The battery-operated tea light (included) creates a lovely heartwarming glow! This shape has been included in the Fenton line for many decades, with some styles dating as far back as the late 1930s or early 1940s.

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 has undergone 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 Amber, 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. (ET) on Wednesday, September 5, 2018.
