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 2019 by one of our talented designers. These Limited Editions were handcrafted at Mosser Glass, using the Fenton Art Glass moulds, exclusively for the Fenton Gift Shop.

Michelle Kibbe likes to showcase animals in her designs and the English Bulldog was an excellent choice for our impressive 11.25" Opal Satin Vase. The hand painted details are so true-to-life that you may want to reach out and pet this brown-eyed canine! The adorable English Bulldog design graces the front of the vase and Michelle added colorful doggie treats by the dog's paws and also on the back of the vase. Michelle added pinstripe details around the top of the vase. Each English Bulldog Vase is $195.

Fenton designer Michelle Kibbe created a lovely hand painted design of stylized flowers and bluebirds for our 10.5" Opal Satin Hurricane Lamp (includes base). Clusters of colorful purple and white flowers encircle the 9.125" shade and a pair of bluebirds perch on a branch. Michelle added delicate purple pinstripes around the bottom of the shade. The base has a 1" diameter area suitable for a pillar candle (see inset photo). A battery operated tea light will cast a soft, warm glow as seen in the photo. This shape has been included in the Fenton line for many decades, with some styles dating as far back as 1939. (Second 25 Years, pages 75 and 98). Each Bluebirds and Blooms Hurricane Candle Lamp (tea light included) is $140 and limited to 12.

Kim Barley's delight in creating her popular whimsical Halloween designs is evident on this 6" Ruby Satin Tree Figurine. She includes all the festive symbols of the Halloween season. Her hand painted details cover the entire figurine. . . from creepy eyes peering from a window, a watchful black cat and grinning pumpkins. . . to flying bats, white stars, a golden moon, and the hand lettered "Happy Halloween" message.

 

Kim "tops off" this tree with a black witch's hat that sports a wide green band and golden buckle! The perfect addition to your seasonal display! Each Happy Halloween Tree Figurine is $75.

Pre-orders for the English Bulldog Vase, Bluebirds and Blooms Hurricane Candle Lamp and the Happy Halloween Tree Figurine will be accepted until midnight (ET) on Monday, January 14, 2019. 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. RETURN POLICY: Returns on "undamaged" products are accepted.

Fenton Art Glass has developed interesting products especially for the holidays. Our first Halloween offerings in 2002 included a Witch figurine designed by sculptor Jon Saffell (now retired). This Witch has become a part of the Halloween holiday tradition for many Fenton fans.

 

Kim Barley loves Halloween and her whimsical design style suits this 6.25" Opal Satin Witch Figurine.  You'll love all the hand painted details. . . from the stars and bats and the green witch's hat to the scraggly cats and smiling ghost. Note the toothy grin on the blue-eyed witch. The witch's dress is in seasonal colors. Kim hand lettered "bats and black cats" on the bag, which is topped with stars and whimsical designs. Each Bats and Black Cats Witch Figurine is $115.

Here's another "perfect pair" from Robin Spindler. This pair will certainly start a conversation when on display in your home! Robin chose a unique bird species called the "Eurasian Eagle Owl" as her design on our Opal Satin Vase.

 

Two vibrant black, orange and yellow butterflies grace the back side of this 10.75" vase. Robin said these colorful butterflies were found in China. She added a coordinating design on the Opal Satin Owl Figurine. Additional views of each piece are shown below.

Robin created a nice floral with greenery in soft orange-yellow hues and a tree background on the vase. An adult Eurasian Eagle Owl and Owlet are looking out from their tree nest cavity. Note the large eyes and the large white-tipped tufts on the adult which make them one of the most striking in appearance of the owl species.

Each Eurasian Eagle Owl Vase is $160 and is limited to eight vases.

 

Did you know. . . Eurasian Eagle-owls are among the world's largest owls with a wingspan of up to six feet. These owls are fast and powerful when in flight and can soar on updrafts of air, displaying a type of flight similar to that of soaring hawks. Eurasian Eagle-owls are found throughout much of Europe and Asia and in certain parts of northern Africa.

 

The 5.5" Opal Satin Owl Figurine features Robin's life-like rendition of the Eurasian Eagle Owl. Perfect gift for the figurine collector and as a companion piece for the vase.

 

Robin will add the name "Eurasian Eagle Owl" to her signature and date on each piece (see photo with owl figurine).

 

Each Eurasian Eagle Owl Figurine is $95.

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, January 16, 2019 at 2 p.m. (ET). Items featured this week.

Here's a splendid one-of-a-kind hand painted Burmese pitcher (5.5" tall at the top of the handle) from Fenton artist Michelle Kibbe. This pattern is called "Beaded Melon" by Fenton glass collectors, and it was first in the Fenton Art
Glass Company line as "711" in the late 1940s. Michelle's hand painted decoration features lush roses, rosebuds, contrasting floral accents, and green foliage on each of the vertical panels for a stunning effect. Burmese glass is a
classic Fenton color, made with pure gold in the batch of raw materials. Special reheating techniques are needed to create the distinctive pink blush that collectors love. Note the graceful applied ribbed handle, also made of
Burmese glass.

Here's a great chance to acquire a bit of Fenton Art Glass history. Made from original negatives in the Fenton Archives, these two 8x10 photos are views of the Fenton Art Glass factory. One 8x10 photo dates from about 1907, shortly after the factory was constructed and the company began making glass on January 2, 1907. The water tanks are in the center of the photo, and the tall stack above the multi-pot furnace is at the right (the three small stacks at the far right are above three small tank furnaces). The company’s office area is on the extreme left. The other 8x10 photo is an aerial view of the Fenton Art Glass Co. factory. This photo was taken in the late 1940s or early 1950s. A tall water tank is in the center of the photo. The tall stack above the multi-pot furnace and the surrounding roof area were reconstructed in 1940, shortly after the original stack had collapsed in June 1940 (the three small stacks nearby are above tank furnaces). At the time this aerial photo was taken, the factory was surrounded by fields (some of which are under cultivation), and various vehicles are parked along the dirt road in front of the factory. These 8x10 photos of the Fenton Art Glass Company are high-quality black-and-white prints on a special metallic paper to heighten contrast.

Award-winning Fenton artist Kim Barley's talent for the whimsical knows no bounds, and this delightful one-of-a-kind hand painted Ghost figurine (5.5" tall) called "Swing among the Stars" is a perfect reflection of Kim's creativity.
You'll enjoy her depiction of black cats sitting on a swing amidst a medley of golden stars! Kim began by airbrushing the Opal Satin glass with a special blue hue to capture the feel of nightfall. Her hand painted details are simply
wonderful, from the cats' whiskers and curly tails to the grin and "googly" eyes of the Ghost. This figurine was made at Mosser Glass, using the Fenton Art Glass mould, exclusively for Fenton Gift Shop. If a gift for Valentine's Day is in
your plans, don't miss that star with a red heart!
These Fenton Art Glass eBay auctions will end at 2 p.m. (ET) on Wednesday, January 16, 2019.
