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.
September 5, 2018.
