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, using the Fenton moulds, exclusively for the Fenton Gift Shop.

 

Michelle Kibbe created the perfect pair. . . a magnificent Vase with a coordinating Figurine! Our impressive 11.75" Opal Satin Vase features Michelle's hand painted scene of a lion and lioness. The details are meticulously executed and a tribute to Michelle's skill as an artist. She also created a lioness design for the Stylized Cat Figurine. For the vase, Michelle created a dark vignette frame around the lion and lioness and it really makes her design stand out. She added delicate leaves as well as polka dot in a large to small pattern and thin band as accents. The  back of the vase also has the delicate leaf design. Note the additional views of the Vase and Figurine that are shown below. Each Lion & Lioness Vase is $230.

 

Michelle hand painted our 5" Opal Satin Stylized Cat Figurine as a lioness in realistic detail, especially the markings on the face. Each Lioness Stylized Cat Figurine is $95.

 

Did you know. . . Male and female ions, known as the "King" and "Queen" of the jungle, live in a large group called a "pride" with their cubs. The number of lionesses in a pride can be from two to twenty. All females within a pride are usually related. There is no rank hierarchy among the females and no two are likely to be found together more than half the time.

 

Females are the main hunters of the pride. The males only hunt when a big kill is involved or when the females have not given the lion a free lunch. A female lion can eat up to 11 pounds of meat a day and a male will eat about 15 pounds or more a day.


Michelle Kibbe continues her popular "Pine Cones & Chickadee" design on our 7.25" Opal Satin Snowman Fairy Light and it looks great! You may recall this design on our Chessie Cat Covered Box, Owl Figurine and Vase offered in our August 31st newsletter.
 

She created her wonderful hand painted scene of pine cones, branches and colorful red berries. A chickadee is perched on a branch on the front. Michelle added a cheerful expression to the face, a green scarf, mittens, and a dashing top hat to complete the look. Note the inset photo at right of the Snowman Fairy Light glowing with the tea candle inside (provided).

 

Designed by Fenton sculptor Jon Saffell, the Snowman Fairy Light was included in our  "Frosty Friends" grouping for the several years and is a collector favorite. Each Pines Cones & Chickadee Snowman Fairy Light is $125.

Pre-orders for the Lion & Lioness Vase, Lioness Stylized Cat Figurine and Pines Cones & Chickadee Snowman Fairy Light will be accepted until midnight (ET) on Monday, October 29, 2018. To pre-order, please contact Fenton Gift Shop at 1-800-319-7793, ext. 342 or  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.

All the "mouse" creatures are stirring in Robin Spindler's festive "Santa's Helpers" design! Nine adorable dark-eyed critters adorn this 11" Opal Satin Vase! Two appear to be tying... or are they really untying... a package. Another mouse seems mesmerized when gazing at itself in a shiny glass ornament. Several are balancing precariously on the colorful ornaments while a mouse on the floor observes their antics. Robin will sign, date and add her title "Santa's Helpers" to each vase, which we're sure you'll display for many years to come! Each Santa's Helpers Vase is $190.

As many of you already know, Fenton created this 8" Chessie Cat Covered Box especially for the Chesapeake & Ohio railway company. "Chessie" was a popular cat character used as a symbol of the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway. They used the artwork with their slogan that when traveling on their railway you would "sleep like a kitten". The underside of the base on this box also has embossed lettering imparted by the mould: "Chessie by Fenton" and it has proven to be a Fenton favorite!

 

Kim Barley's whimsical and fun hand painted "Snow Buddies" design is sure to bring a smile. A brown-toned kitten is nestled in a blanket surround by his "Snow Buddies". . . a smiling snowman, an owl wearing reindeer antlers and a small gray mouse. Kim added a small pine tree adorned with a red heart and golden star. A large, delicate snowflake is on the back and falling snow encircles this piece. Each Snow Buddies Chessie Cat Covered Box is $150.

Our 10.5" Opal Satin Hurricane Lamp (includes base) is perfect for your seasonal display! The shade is 9.125" tall. This shape has been included in the Fenton line for many decades, with some styles dating as far back as 1939. (Fenton Glass: Second 25 Years pages 75 and 98)

Fenton designer Michelle Kibbe created a wonderful winter design of an adorable racooon and his small feathered friends frolicking in the snow. The birds appear to be eating some seeds that are strewn on the ground. Front and back views are shown in the photo at left.

 

The base is sprayed in a lovely shade of aqua blue. Michelle added delicate star-shaped snowflakes and petite white polka dots as accents. Additional views of this set are shown below.

The base has a 1" diameter area suitable for a taper candle (see inset photo below). We inserted a battery operated tea light to show the soft, warm glow of this Hurricane Lamp. Each Raccoon & Friends Hurricane Candle Lamp is $145.

 

Pre-orders for the Santa's Helpers Vase, Snow Buddies Chessie Cat Covered Box and the Raccoon & Friends Hurricane Candle Lamp will be accepted until midnight (ET) on Wednesday, October 31, 2018.

The Santa figurines designed by sculptor Jon Saffell in the 1990s quickly became very popular Fenton collectibles as well as holiday gifts, and we're very pleased to offer this one-of-a-kind hand painted Santa figurine (8" tall) by Fenton artist Michelle Kibbe. Note all the colorful hand painted details: the red toy train with its cargo of Christmas presents;
the North Pole sign; the "Santa's List" over his arm; the burnished gold trim on Santa's robe and cap; the snowflake accents; etc etc.! We can almost hear his "Ho! Ho! Ho!" This Santa figurine will make a wonderful forever keepsake for someone special!

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 for their age. These checks will make a wonderful display for any collector of Fenton glass or historic financial documents.

Here's a wonderful trio of hand painted crystal goblets, each a splendid tribute to the talents and skills of Fenton designer Robin Spindler. These goblets stand about 6" tall, and each has a different hand painted motif designed and hand painted by Robin. The colors are simply splendid, and you'll love the dragonflies, butterflies, candy bugs, etc. etc.! We came across these recently in one of our nooks and crannies and wondered about them. Robin tells us that these were hand painted a few years ago when she was working on various design "ideas" that could be used on functional crystal items that Fenton purchased from various vendors. Each of these crystal hand painted goblets is personally signed ("J. K. Spindler") on the underside of the foot.
These Fenton Art Glass eBay auctions will end at 2 p.m. (ET) on Wednesday, October 31, 2018.
