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. The Iceberg Paperweight was
made by Mosser Glass. The other Limited Edition pieces
were handcrafted by Mosser, using the Fenton moulds,
exclusively for the Fenton Gift Shop.
Those who have heard the distinctive "bobwhite!
bobwhite!" call surely recall the excitement they
felt. With our 11.5" Opal Satin Vase as her glass
canvas, Michelle Kibbe created this wonderful
winter landscape. Michelle's design features a trio of Bobwhite Quail,
one on the ground and two in flight. The hand painted details
on the birds are realistic
. . . every brushstroke meticulously executed. The scene
also includes rustic fence posts
and golden-brown scrub grass that encircles the vase.
Michelle created a darkening winter sky for the background.
Did you know. . . Commonly
referred to as the "King of native American game
birds", the ground-dwelling Bobwhite resembles a
chicken. When sensing danger, the bird will camouflage
itself by standing still in its place, making it
particularly difficult for predators to spot it.
Bobwhites are not good fliers, flying short distances.
An average flight lasts only for 5.1 seconds. However,
their strong legs help them quickly walk or run away
from danger. Each Bobwhite Quail Vase is $220.
Cast a soft glow in any room with this
beautiful Lighthouse Fairy Light. This 8" Lighthouse was
handcrafted in Opal Satin glass (5" base and 3" crystal top).
Michelle Kibbe's hand painted scene features a ruby-throated
hummingbird seeking nectar from stylized trumpet-vine flowers
in lush pink hues. Other flowers encircle the base as accents.
Note the delicate vine-green colored ring around the bottom. You'll
also receive a battery operated tea light that fits perfectly
on the top of the base in a recessed area measuring
approximately 1-1/5" diameter. Each Stylized Floral &
Hummingbird Lighthouse Fairy Light is $130.
Kim Barley has created a marvelous
Halloween-themed design that is sure to please! This
Bridesmaid Doll Figurine (6.75") is handcrafted in Orange
glass with a satin finish. Kim added fun and whimsical Halloween details: smiling
jack-o-lanterns, a black cat, witch's hat, spooky house,
and flying bats in a starry night background. The arms of
the figurine are painted to resemble black lace and note
the black ribbon with spidery tendrils at the throat! Each All Hallow's
Eve Bridesmaid Doll Figurine is $120 and limited to
18. Sorry, this figurine is not guaranteed for
Halloween delivery. You can save it for next season!

Michelle Kibbe chose this unique creature for
her hand painted scene on this 7" Cobalt Iceberg Paperweight. This
stylized white-footed mouse appears to be checking out his acorn
Perhaps he is gathering these acorns
to get him through the winter! Each Stylized
White-Footed Mouse Iceberg
Paperweight is $100.
Did you know. . . White-footed
mice are good climbers and, like squirrels, often store nuts
and seeds in tree cavities.
A distinctive behavior of the white-footed mouse is the
drumming on a hollow reed or a dry leaf with its front paws to
produce a long, musical buzzing.
Our 9" Opal Satin Vase provides the perfect
canvas for Robin Spindler's scene of an ice
skating couple. Dressed warmly in clothing from
another era, the young man appears to be encouraging
his female companion, who looks to be a little more
tentative on the ice. Robin's hand painted details are
marvelous with the thicker white detail lines lending
a unique look to the design. She created a wonderful
winter landscape of birch trees and pines. Note the
birds flying in the wintry sky above the couple.
Did you know. . . Ice skating
costumes have pushed the boundaries of what is
considered modest throughout history. Even in the
1930s, skaters (both male and female) were redefining
what was sexy by showing off their "risque" outfits on
the ice. The outfits on Robin's vase are definitely on
the more modest side of fashion.
Each Vintage Skaters Vase is $150.
Fenton designer Robin Spindler created
colorful attire for "Holly and Jolly" with bright
raspberry for Holly's cape and hat and a brilliant
blue hue for Jolly's scarf and earmuffs. Robin added
holly sprig accents to create just the right look.

This unique offhand 9" Mosaic glass vase was
created by glass artisan Dave Fetty. Dave joined Fenton Art
Glass in 1965, and worked closely with artisan Robert Barber
in the mid-1970s, designing and making some of Fenton's first
limited edition pieces. He retired in 1998 but continued to
contribute his design and glassmaking talents as a visiting
artist at other glass manufacturers. Dave's unique offhand
creations, such as this Mosaic Vase, are tributes to American
art glass. This Mosaic vase has an iridized finish inside and
a multi-color iridized finish outside. It began with a solid color
glass, either black or cobalt, and was then covered in
brightly colored glass chips, called frit. The piece was then
reheated. Due to the random nature of the chip application, no
two pieces are the same, making each vase a unique example of
the glassmaker's artistry. This vase has Dave Fetty's personal
stamp on the bottom, as well as his signature.
These glass rods are color samples of Fenton
glass from the 1960s. If you like Fenton “Chocolate” glass,
you’ll love this remarkable selection of glass rod color
samples. All of these glass rod color samples are from the
1960s, when chemist Charles Goe was seeking to recreate the
Chocolate glass made in the earliest years of the Twentieth
Century. There are 14 glass rod color samples here, and the
photos show the range of color, from light coffee with cream
to rich, dark chocolate … and almost every shade in between!
The rods were made under the direction of glass chemist
“Charlie” Goe, who was employed at the Fenton Art Glass Co. In
the 1960s, company president Frank M. Fenton was very
interested in having Fenton recreate historic glass colors
such as Burmese from the 1880s, Bastow’s opaque pink from
about 1900, and Jacob Rosenthal’s Chocolate from the earliest
years of the twentieth century. Chocolate glass is very
difficult to create, and it took many years of experimentation
and test melts in order to get it right! These glass rods were
made by gathering a small quantity of glass from a “test pot”
on a punty and rolling it on a steel plate called a marver.
Because of the process used to make them, the rods will vary
somewhat in length and in diameter; typically, each rod is
slightly more than 2-1/2” long and about 3/8” in diameter.
Each rod has a paper label that records a coded reference for
the glass batch, the specific date (month, day and year), and
whether the glass is unfinished (”unfin”) or finished (“fin”).
Unfinished means that the molten glass was taken from the pot,
and the rod was created immediately. Finished means that the
glass was taken from the pot, allowed to chill briefly, and
subsequently reheated before creating the rod.
Award-winning Fenton designer Robin Spindler has created some
great works featuring horses, and we think this one-of-a-kind
hand painted paperweight in pure crystal glass is truly
remarkable. By hand painting on both sides of the crystal
paperweight, Robin achieved a splendid three-dimensional
effect that adds to the appeal of these wonderful horses. Her
scene depicts a mare and her foal. Robin added some extra
“sparkle” with three pink gemstone accents to the foal’s
bridle. The colors, textures and details are true to life, and
every brushstroke is meticulously done. This one-of-a-kind
hand painted crystal paperweight (7" tall, 5.75" wide at base)
is identified, signed and dated on the underside: "Fenton 2018
OOAK hand painted by J. K. Spindler".
