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 Fenton Art Glass moulds, exclusively for the Fenton Gift Shop.

This 11" Opal Satin Vase with a lovely scene of "Winter Doves" is a lovely piece to display all season long!

 

Michelle Kibbe's hand painted details capture the delicate feathers as well as the delicate snowflakes in the background. The lush green foliage with crimson red flowers complement the birds.

 

Did you know. . .

White doves symbolize new beginnings, peace, fidelity, love, luck, and prosperity that transcends all cultures. Doves are some of the strongest fliers of all bird species. With large, strong wings & muscles, doves have a lot of strength in flight and a great ability to perform maneuvers. Each Winter Doves Vase is $180.


Fenton Gift Shop is pleased to offer this 10.5" Opal Satin Hurricane Lamp. 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.

Kim Barley's hand painted "Believe" design will warm your heart and bring a smile to your face! You'll love the soft glow that this Hurricane Candle Lamp casts when you light the tea light (included). The face of this smiling Snowman has a cute, whimsical expression. The word "Believe" is in white outlined with black. Kim added a golden star and falling snow against a soft blue sky as accents to complete this piece. Each Believe Hurricane Candle Lamp is $140.

This 7" tall x 5.5" wide Crystal Iceberg Paperweight provides the perfect canvas for Robin Spindler's hand painted "Star Bright" scene. A snowman and his rabbit companion gaze up in wonder at a brilliant golden star shining down upon them. Robin created a lovely white halo effect around the star. A winter night sky with falling snow amongst the lush green pines provides a lovely background.

 

Robin's painting technique creates a unique three-dimensional effect on the glass with sections of the background (sky, fence, trees and pink and red berries). The shape of this iceberg with the edges provide a wonderful frame for this scene. Robin added a colorful striped scarf with matching toboggan for the snowman that complements the pink of the rabbit's ears as well as the berries. Each Star Bright Iceberg Paperweight  is $100.


Pre-orders for the
Winter Doves Vase, Believe Hurricane Candle Lamp and Star Bright Crystal Iceberg Paperweight will be accepted until midnight (ET) on Monday, November 19, 2018.

The impressive 11.5" size of the elegant Opal Satin Vase suits the colorful and equally impressive "House Finches" design by Robin Spindler. The hand painted details are meticulously executed.

 

The vibrant red- and orange-hued berries and leaves accents provide a perfect background frame for Robin's scene of a male and female House Finch perched on a branch. Each House Finches Vase is $215.

As many Fenton collectors know, Kim Barley is a No. 1 fan of one of rock 'n roll's top music icons. You know, the one whose first name begins with the letter "E"! So it was no surprise when Kim decided to incorporate some of the more well known attributes of this singer into her "Rock 'n Roll Music" design on our popular 2.5" Mouse Figurine! This little Opal Satin Mouse sports a pink jacket with a black collar, blue shirt, white patent leather-look shoes, a cute pink "snarl" smile, and long black sideburns. The expression on that face seems to show that this wee mouse is singing with all his heart! Kim added 45 rpm records (remember vinyl?) and musical notes on the ears. Note the golden star with a red heart on the side. This figurine will make the perfect gift for figurine collectors, rock 'n roll music fans, or to add to your own Fenton Art Glass collection. Each Rock 'n Roll Music Mouse Figurine is $80.

Since their debut in the year 2000, the Fenton "Snowpeople" have delighted collectors and continued to add holiday cheer to many, many homes. Our Snowman and Snowlady figurines were designed by Fenton sculptor Jon Saffell, and, along with the Snowman fairy light (featured in recent newsletters), they’ve been in a grouping called "Frosty Friends" for several years.

 

Michelle Kibbe created a beautiful poinsettia design for this smiling pair! Each smiling figurine is hand painted in colorful winter attire. Michelle added a vibrant red poinsettia, colorful leaves and berries on the front. Each figurine sports a matching scarf or cape, hat and mittens. Each Poinsettia Pair Snow Couple Figurine Set is $140.

Pre-orders for the House Finches Vase, Rock 'n Roll Music Mouse Figurine and Poinsettia Pair Snow Couple Figurine Set will be accepted until midnight (ET) on Wednesday, November 21, 2018.

Fenton Art Glass eBay Auctions. . .
Here's your opportunity to own a one-of-a-kind glass creation or items from Fenton's 112+ year history through our weekly eBay auctions. These Fenton Art Glass eBay auctions will on Wednesday, November 21st at
2 p.m. (ET). Items featured this week. . .

 

This impressive one-of-a-kind hand painted vase (13" tall) by Fenton artist Michelle Kibbe features bull Elks in full volume during the rutting season ... when every bull Elk is ready to stand in defense of his territory (and his harem!). The hand painted landscape scenes are the perfect background for Michelle's remarkably accurate depiction of the Elks. Every brushstroke is meticulously done, and the overall effect is simply breathtaking. Lotus Mist Burmese is a unique glass color first made by Fenton Art Glass nearly 20 years ago. There is pure gold in the glass batch, and special reheating techniques are needed to create the distinctive pink blush. Lotus Mist Burmese is a real tribute to the talents of Fenton's glass chemists as well as the skills of Fenton glassworkers.

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! The rods were made under the direction of glass chemist Charles “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”).

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 was recently demolished, with plans for a new elementary school to be built on the site, 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, and it is the last panel in this color that we have to offer. Colonial Amber was 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, November 21, 2018.
