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 pieces were handcrafted by Mosser Glass, using the Fenton moulds, exclusively for the Fenton Gift Shop.

 

The impressive size of our 11.75" Opal Satin Vase provides the perfect canvas for Michelle Kibbe's equally impressive hand painted Polar Bear design. Michelle created a wintry background complete with swirling snow and a sky in hues of blue and purple. The details are meticulously executed and true to life. Michelle added a few larger golden snowflakes amidst swirling snow as well as a sponge effect around the band at the top of the vase as shown in the photos at right.

 

Did you know. . . Polar bears are the only bear species to be considered marine mammals because of their reliance on the ocean for their food and habitat. Beneath all that thick, translucent fur, a polar bear's skin is jet black. It only appears white because the fur reflects visible light. The polar bear is the largest of all the carnivores. The male polar bear can reach a height of 11 feet and weigh nearly 2,000 pounds. Each Polar Bear Pair Vase is $230.


A must have for any Halloween display is our 3.75" Egg on Stand Figurine featuring Kim Barley's wonderfully whimsical Halloween design. A bright orange carved pumpkin (note the single tooth in that big smile!) encircles the figurine. A wide-eyed, black fuzzy cat peeks out of the top, while a purple spider dangles from a web on the back side. Note the cat's scruffy tail! Kim added gold and white star accents on the base of this Egg on Stand Figurine. American glass manufacturers have produced eggs since the early 1900s, some years after covered hen boxes became popular. The Fenton Art Glass "5140" Egg on Stand was produced in many colors and patterns during the 1970s and 80s. Fenton began their Collectible Eggs series in 1991. Each Peekaboo Pumpkin Cat Egg on Stand Figurine is $80.

Our popular Snowman and Snowlady Figurines are stepping out in vibrant purple hues! Kim Barley has "Pete" the Snowman and "Polly" the Snowlady dressed warmly in purple jackets, colorful mittens, hats and striped scarves. Note the brown bunny and star and heart accents on the front of each figurine. As always, Kim added a marvelous whimsical expression on each face! Each Pete 'n Polly Purple Snowman and Snowlady Figurine Pair is $140.
 

Pre-orders for the Polar Bear Pair Vase, Peekaboo Pumpkin Cat Egg on Stand Figurine and the Pete 'n Polly Purple Snowman and Snowlady Figurine Pair will be accepted until midnight (ET) on Monday, September 17, 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.

This 11" Opal Satin Vase features a lovely hand painted Autumn scene of a pair of cardinals perched on a branch.

 

Designed by Michelle Kibbe, a male and female cardinal perch on a branch with the leaves starting to change colors. Michelle created a background using the colors of Autumn in the trees and leaves. The hand painted details are meticulously executed and Michelle added a delicate blue-green band around the top. Note that birdhouse hanging from a branch!

 

Did you know. . .  Birds are among the most popular state symbols in the United States. Every state has an official bird and some states even have more than one official bird. The selection of state birds began in 1927.

 

The Northern Cardinal is one of the most well known birds in America. The states of Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, North Carolina, Ohio, West Virginia,
and Virginia all honor the Northern Cardinal as their
state bird.

 

Each Autumn Cardinals Vase is $190.

Kim Barley has created a delightfully whimsical design for our 2.75" Opal Satin Mouse Figurine!
A collector favorite, this popular mouse figurine sports a big toothy grin and large brown eyes.

Kim hand lettered the year 2018 with golden star accents on one ear. The other ear sports a large snowman face with falling snow against a blue background. This Mouse sports a red jacket, green vest with matching shoes, brown slacks and a bowtie to complete the look. Each Big Brown Eyes 2018 Mouse Figurine is $75.

 

Pre-orders for the Autumn Cardinals Vase and Big Brown Eyes 2018 Mouse Figurine will be accepted until midnight (ET) on Wednesday, September 19, 2018.

Fenton Art Glass eBay Auctions. . .

Here's your opportunity to own a "one-of-a-kind" art glass creation or an item from Fenton's 112+ year history through our weekly eBay auctions. These Fenton Art Glass eBay auctions will end at 2 p.m. (ET) on Wednesday, September 19. Items featured this week. . .

Fenton artist Michelle Kibbe just might be the "cat whisperer," as she has splendid talents and skills when it comes to hand painting those felines! This one-of-a-kind hand painted iceberg paperweight in Milk Glass stands 3.75" tall and is 4.25" long. Michelle's wonderful hand painting captures all the beauty and expressiveness of a mature cat that is doing what ... just awakening from a nap? ... on alert for its owner? ... now hoping for a snack? The realistic hand painted details are simply marvelous, from the eyes to every whisker! This one-of-a-kind hand painted Milk Glass iceberg paperweight is identified, signed and dated on the underside.

Here's a great opportunity to acquire a Fenton Art Glass 5161 Swan figurine (approx. 4" tall) that was hand painted by the legendary Louise Piper! The Swan is opaque Blue Satin glass, and the floral motif designed and hand painted by Louise Piper was called "Blue Roses on Blue Satin when it was introduced in the Fenton line for 1978. Because this hand painted Swan figurine by Louise Piper is dated in October 1977, we can conclude that the Blue Roses motif was one of Louise's many glass decorating ideas that was under consideration for the forthcoming Fenton line for the following year's catalog. So, it's a very special piece! As it turned out, the Blue Roses on Blue Satin grouping became popular with collectors and was in the Fenton Art Glass line through 1982. This very special hand painted Swan figurine is signed and dated on the underside: "Hand Painted By Louise Piper Oct. 12, 77".

Here's a rare opportunity to acquire some interesting historic bank checks from the past years of the Fenton Art Glass Company. We have just 3 sets of these checks to sell. In each set, there are nine different bank checks, as follows: (1) Dollar Savings Bank, Bridgeport, Ohio (our very first bank account, c. 1905); (2) Williamstown National Bank, c. 1907; (3) Williamstown National Bank, Williamstown, West Virginia, c. 1908; (4) Citizens National Bank of Parkersburg,
West Virginia, c. 1909; (5) "Dividend Check" First National Bank, Marietta, Ohio, c. 1910; (6) Farmers and Mechanics National Bank, Williamstown, West Virginia, c. 1920s; (7) First National Bank, Marietta, Ohio, c. 1920s; (8) "Petty Cash Fund" Farmers & Mechanics National Bank, Williamstown, West Virginia, c. 1940s-1950s; and (9) JPMorgan Chase Bank, N. A., c. 2000s. These nine Fenton Art Glass Company paper checks are unused and are in excellent condition
