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 Fenton Art Glass moulds, exclusively for the Fenton Gift Shop. We are pleased to introduce our Mouse Figurine in a new color - Ruby!

NOTE: These latest Fenton Gift Shop Limited Editions are not guaranteed for delivery by Christmas. We suggest placing a copy of the photo in a gift card to give to the recipient so he/she will know that the special gift will be on the way soon. We can not guarantee Christmas delivery after December 17 on previously placed orders. Our artists have been working very industriously, just like Santa's elves, to complete as many pieces as possible!

 

This 7.25" two-piece Opal Satin Fairy Light was designed by sculptor Jon Saffell as part of our "Frosty Friends" collection in 2002. The Snowman Fairy Light shown at right is sure to become a seasonal favorite!

 

Michelle Kibbe's hand painted design includes three penguins, each wearing a colorful cap or earmuffs. One penguin skates on the ice while another peeks around the colorful scarf of the Snowman. A third penguin is gathering up snow for a large snowball. . . wonder which penguin is the target! So no wonder that we decided to name this Fairy Light "Playful Penguins."

 

Michelle added coordinating mittens, scarf and hat band. A winter landscape encircles the vase with tall pine trees, snow drifts and falling snow. The snowman sports a cute smile with a large carrot nose.

 

Shown below are additional views of this two-part Fairy Light. Add the battery-operated tea light (included) for a soft glow!

 

Each Playful Penguins Snowman Fairy Light is $125.

This 8.75" Opal Satin Vase provides an excellent glass canvas for Michelle Kibbe's hand painted design of a pair of loons on a clear lake.

 

A beautiful landscape encircles the vase with two loons as the focal point. Note the reflections of the trees and sky in the water. The hand painted details are meticulously executed and a tribute to Michelle's talent.

 

Did you know. . . Because of its large webbed feet and diving ability, the common loon is an efficient underwater predator. The common loon is an expert at fishing, catching its prey underwater by diving as deep as 200 ft. In certain conditions, the loon can hold its breath for up to three minutes.

 

The male of this species makes the famous yodel cry, heard most often during breeding season.
Each Loons on the Lake Vase is $150.

We are pleased to welcome Ruby as a new color for our 2.75" Mouse Figurine! When you hold this satin finished figurine up to the light you'll see a marvelous Amberina color effect on the paws, ears and feet.

 

Kim Barley is thinking about Valentine's Day! Her hand painted design on this satin finished Ruby Mouse features a large pink heart on one ear with lots of white swirls and "OX XO", along with a "Love Letter" on the other ear. Kim added a golden heart on the black gold-trimmed sweater. A delicate white blossom adorns one side of the figurine. Note that expressive face with the large eyes and toothy smile!

 

This figurine will make a perfect Valentine's Day gift for someone special! Each Love Letter Mouse Figurine is $80.

 

Pre-orders for the Playful Penguins Snowman Fairy Light, Loons on the Lake Vase and the Love Letter Mouse Figurine will be accepted until midnight (ET) on Monday, December 17, 2018.

The elegant 10.75" Opal Satin Vase features a design by Robin Spindler of one of the largest, loudest and most colorful birds seen at backyard bird feeders and woodland areas in the eastern part of the country - the Blue Jay. Robin's hand painted details are true-to-life and include the distinctive black "bridle" across the face and nape of the neck. The large Blue Jay is perched on a branch full of colorful red berries. Robin created a soft rose-blue background on the vase.

 

Did you know. . . Blue Jays are known for their intelligence and complex social systems. These birds have close family bonds. Their fondness for acorns is credited with helping spread oak trees after the last glacial period. Each Blue Jay Vase is $150.

"Chessie" was the popular cat character used as a symbol of the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway. They used this artwork with their advertising slogan that when traveling on their railway you would "sleep like a kitten". Fenton created this item especially for the Chesapeake & Ohio railway company.


Robin Spindler created a delightful "Kitty Cluster" design with bright raspberry pink pawprints on the lid and sleeping kittens snuggled around the mama kitty.
This 8" Opal Satin Chessie Box has embossed lettering ("Chessie by Fenton") on the underside as well as Robin's signature, date, the number and the name of this limited edition. The orange tabby mama cat is tucked in to a blanket while her kittens snuggle against one another. Each Kitty Cluster Chessie Cat Covered Box is $150.

Michelle Kibbe continues her popular "Pine Cones & Chickadee" design on our Girl (6.25") and Boy (5.75") Angel Figurines! We think they look great! You may recall this design on our Chessie Cat Covered Box, Owl and Penguin Figurines, Snowman Fairy Light, and Vase offered in previous newsletters. Michelle's wonderful hand painted scene includes pine cones, branches and colorful red berries.

A chickadee is perched on a branch on the front. Details for each figurine are shown below. Michelle added an angelic expression to the face, white polka dot accents on the sleeves and gold highlights on the wings to complete each angel.

 

Each Pine Cones and Chickadees

Angel Girl and Angel Boy Figurine Set is $140. 

 

Or you can order an individual figurine for $75. Please specify Angel Girl or Angel Boy in your request.

Pre-orders for the Blue Jay Vase, Kitty Cluster Chessie Cat Covered Box and the Pine Cones and Chickadees Angel Boy and Girl Figurine Set will be accepted until midnight (ET) on Wednesday, December 19, 2018. 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.

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 Fenton Art Glass eBay auctions. These Fenton Art Glass eBay auctions will on Wednesday, December 19th at 2 p.m. (ET).
Items featured this week.


Satin finished ruby glass provides the perfect
canvas for this spectacular one-of-a-kind hand
painted vase (12" tall) by Fenton designer Robin
Spindler. You'll love the delightful hand painted
Chickadees as they perch amongst a fir tree with
bright red berries and lots of cones nearby. The birds are wonderfully detailed, and we can almost hear their distinctive song... "chickadee dee dee." These well-loved songbirds often travel together in small groups, and Robin has captured a moment when all four of the Chickadees have found a favorite place to perch. This one-of-a-kind hand painted vase is fully identified, signed and dated ("hand painted by J. K. Spindler 2018 OOAK") on the underside along with a special decal of the Fenton logo and a design statement.

When we see a Fenton Angel, we know Christmas is coming ... for sure! This one-of-a-kind boy Angel (5.75" tall) from Fenton artist Michelle Kibbe is sure to bring out the Christmas spirit in all who see it. The delicately airbrushed Opal Satin glass has a lustrous quality to it and is the perfect background for Michelle's hand painted design. The green cloak contrasts perfectly, and Michelle has added a wealth of details: note the holly sprig, the fine dots, etc.

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 the 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 demolished and a new elementary school is under construction 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 Green, a popular glass color made by Fenton Art Glass in the mid-1960s. This colored glass panel is the last one from our remaining 2018 “Colonial Green” glass panels. It 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. Included in the photos is Jim Wingrove. Jim was the "gatherer" as part of the glass shop (Sonny Burdette was the presser) that made these glass panels.
These Fenton Art Glass eBay auctions will end at 2 p.m. (ET) on Wednesday, December 19th, 2018.
