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 Paperweights were made by Mosser Glass. The other Limited Edition pieces were handcrafted by Mosser Glass, using Fenton Art Glass moulds, exclusively for the Fenton Gift Shop. We are also featuring our Stylized Cat and Ghost Figurines in our newest color - Ruby!

 

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

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.

 

This two-piece Hurricane Candle Lamp provides the perfect canvas for Kim Barley's popular "Winter Fawn" hand painted scene. A fawn stands amidst falling snow. A winter landscape with snow-covered fence posts encircles the shade. Note the pine cones at the top. Each Hurricane Candle Lamp includes a battery-operated tea light which will provide a soft warm glow (top right inset photo). Each Winter Fawn Hurricane Fairy Light is $145.

This 5.75" Ruby Ghost really shines with Michelle Kibbe's fun scene of a bird seeking warmth on a cold winter's day. The big-eyed bird is decked out in a green scarf and a blue hat with white fur trim. The little fella appears to be dancing with joy at the sight of a large, steaming mug of hot chocolate sitting just outside the birdhouse! Michelle also painted details on the smiling ghost face. Each Hot Cocoa Ghost Figurine is $115.


This 4" tall Opal Satin Iceberg Paperweight features a hand painted design by Michelle Kibbe. You'll love the basket with two adorable tabby kittens peeking out

Note those big blue eyes and tiny pink noses! This will make a perfect gift for cat enthusiasts!

 

Each Basket O' Kittens Iceberg Paperweight is $80.

Robin Spindler has created a spectacular matching set of limited editions! Her colorful subjects are the "Moorish Idol" fish.

 

Our impressive 11.25" Opal Satin Vase provides the perfect canvas for Robin's hand painted design as well as the 6" wide Crystal Iceberg Paperweight.

 

"Oohs and aahs" were a few of the comments when our office staff saw Robin Spindler's latest hand painted Limited Editions!

 

The colors on Robin's "Moorish Idol" Vase and Iceberg Paperweight are vibrant and her hand painted details are meticulously executed and a tribute to Robin's talent. Additional photos below show more beautiful views of each piece.

Did you know. . .

A graceful marine fish, the Moorish Idol is also one of the most challenging fish to keep in a home aquarium because it is so difficult to feed. It has to be fed several times a day with a varied diet.

 

Moorish Idol fish can attain a length of seven inches in the wild and about four inches in the aquarium. Its beauty is most evident while swimming with the color and shape of its body.

 

Each Moorish Idol Vase is $225.

 

The amazing three-dimensional effect of Robin's hand painted "Moorish Idol" scene on the Crystal Iceberg Paperweight (6" wide by 5.5" high) was challenging to capture with the camera!

 

Robin used a "reverse painting" technique, which she said is also challenging to accomplish! She painted the scene on the back of the iceberg in reverse order, then airbrushed the back of the paperweight.

 

When you gaze upon this crystal paperweight, it seems like you are actually observing this fish in an aquarium!

A section of the background is hand painted on the back of this paperweight with raised paint creating a three-dimensional effect. The back side was then covered overall to resemble milky-blue water.

 

The front part of the paperweight has a large Moorish Idol fish and some underwater vegetation and sea life. Note the swimming school of fish, starfish, coral, ferns, and other stunning details.

 

Each Moorish Idol Iceberg Paperweight is $95. 


You won't recognize the figurine shown here as our 4.75" Ruby Stylized Cat! Kim Barley did an amazing job transforming this feline into a wily fox!

 

The hand painted details on the body and face are true to life. Note the lush white furry chest and tail and those mesmerizing golden-orange eyes! Kim added a barn scene in winter, complete with snow-covered trees and falling snow.

 

Each Foxy Stylized Cat Figurine is $95. 


 

NOTE: These Limited Editions are not guaranteed for Christmas delivery. We suggest placing a photocopy of the item in a gift card and let the gift recipient know that it will be on the way!

Pre-orders for the Moorish Idol Vase and Iceberg Paperweight and the Foxy Stylized Cat Figurine will be accepted until midnight (ET) on Wednesday, December 26, 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 Fenton Art Glass eBay auctions. These Fenton Art Glass eBay auctions will end on Wednesday, December 26th at 2 p.m. (ET).
Items featured this week.

 

Fenton artist Kim Barley loves the seaside, and her artistic talent and skillful hand painting have captured a wonderful array of sea creatures on this one-of-a-kind, two-piece Lighthouse fairy light in Opal Satin glass airbrushed with "sea blue"
tones for the perfect effect. Kim's design includes a seahorse, a crab and a starfish as well as seashells, coral, and undersea vegetation. Can you spot the oyster with a pearl? The moulds for the Lighthouse fairy light were among the last moulds made in the Fenton Art Glass Co. mould shop, and they were not used for regular production when Fenton closed in 2011. This lighthouse was made by Mosser Glass, using the Fenton Art Glass mould. The Lighthouse is 8" tall overall, and a battery operated tea light is included.


Fenton artist Michelle Kibbe has really "dressed up" this Turtle figurine with her hand painting skills to fashion a great one-of-a-kind item. The Turtle (4" long) is Opal Satin glass, handcrafted at Mosser Glass using the Fenton Art Glass mould. Michelle's delicate airbrushing has created a shimmering pink iridescent look. The hand painted multi-colored flowers are delightfully petite and the gold highlights are meticulously done... every brushstroke is just perfect!

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 Company. Demolition of the Fenton factory was completed, and a new school is being built at the site, but the colored glass panels have been saved. This colored glass panel measures 11.75" tall by 8.75" wide. We call this color "amberina," because the pressed glass panel was made with ruby glass and only the thicker central area has the red hues characteristic of ruby. This is the last panel remaining Amberina panel! There are a few minor chips near the edges on the back side of this panel. This colored glass panel has been signed 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, December 26th, 2018.
