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 artists. The Iceberg Paperweight was made by Mosser Glass and the other Limited Editions were handcrafted at Mosser Glass, using the Fenton Art Glass moulds, exclusively for the Fenton Gift Shop. We are also pleased to introduce NEW shapes to our Fenton Gift Shop product line: a 5" Fairy Light and a 2.5" Frog Figurine. We're sure these popular "blasts from Fenton's past" will be a welcome addition to any Fenton Art Glass collection!

We are pleased to offer this new item to our 2019 Fenton Gift Shop product line ─ a 5" Opal Satin two-piece Fairy Light. Michelle Kibbe created a beautiful hand painted Goldfinch perched amongst stylized pink and white flowers. This petite Fairy Light will cast a warm glow when on display in a hall or bedside table (see photo above). A battery-operated tea light will be included with each Limited Edition Fairy Light. Each Goldfinch Fairy Light is $95.

Michelle Kibbe created a wonderful hand painted design on our 2.5" tall Opal Satin Frog Figurine, which is another new shape for 2019!

Michelle created a scene of buildings beyond green hilltops on one side and added a green striped frog on the other side. Note the lovely pink Lotus flowers and lily pads and the cross hatching design down the back.
Each Lotus Blossom Frog Figurine is $75.

Our popular Bear Figurine is back and is sending a "LOVE" message to one and all. Handcrafted in Opal Satin, this 3.5" figurine is sure to delight the young and young-at-heart! Kim Barley's hand painted design includes a wonderful smile and large eyes on the face and a heart-shaped red nose! The bear is adorned in a polka dot sweater with a hand lettered "LOYE" message on the front. Note the silver candy kiss. This adorable figurine will make a great gift for someone or a wonderful addition to any Fenton collection. Each Message of Love Bear Figurine is $75.

 

Pre-orders for the Goldfinch Fairy Light, Lotus Blossom Frog and Message of Love Bear Figurines will be accepted until midnight (ET) on Monday, January 21, 2019.

Kim Barley's latest whimsical design for our Ruby glass 5.75" Ghost Figurine is a must have for the Halloween season! Her hand painted details are delightful. . . from the golden stars and candy corn pockets on the black vest to the grinning pumpkins, Frankenstein face, green-eyed black cat and purple witch's hat to the unique designs on the bats and the toothy grin on the ghost! Note the bat-shaped smile on one of the pumpkins and the googly eyes on the other ghost! Each BOO Star Ghost Figurine is $115.


You'll be amazed when you view the three dimensional look of this 7" tall Crystal Iceberg Paperweight. Robin Spindler used a reverse hand painting technique. The back has a large Ruby-throated Hummingbird in flight, brilliant fuchsia flower petals, then it's covered with a pale background (see image at far right).

 

Robin painted another Hummingbird on the front and added more vibrant fuchsias and foliage. The overall effect is challenging to capture with the camera lens! But we're sure you'll agree that this Limited Edition Iceberg Paperweight is simply stunning!

 

Did you know. . .
Fuchsias bloom throughout the growing season and attract hummingbirds. Many are confused by the spelling of this plant, so here's a hint: The genus is named after German botanist Leonhart Fuchs.

Each Hummingbirds & Fuchsias Iceberg Paperweight is $110.

Our popular 11" Opal Satin Alley Cat has been transformed into an extinct marsupial called the "Tasmanian Tiger" by Robin Spindler. Note the dog-like face and the dark brown stripes resembling those of a tiger down the back. This figurine will definitely be a conversation starter when on display in your home! Did you know. . . Now extinct, examples of Tasmanian Tigers have been found in engravings and cave rock art dating back to 1000BC. The Tasmanian Tiger was known as the largest carnivorous marsupial in modern times. In a shallow pouch that opens rearward, the female could carry two to four young at a time. Called the Tasmanian Tiger because of the stripes on its lower back, it is believed that this marsupial is the closest relative to the Tasmanian Devil. Each Tasmanian Tiger Alley Cat Figurine is $185.

 

Pre-orders for the BOO Star Ghost Figurine, Hummingbirds & Fuchsias Iceberg Paperweight and Tasmanian Tiger Alley Cat Figurine will be accepted until midnight (ET) on Wednesday, January 23, 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. Include your full name and daytime phone number so we may follow-up on your request. RETURN POLICY: Returns on "undamaged" products are accepted. Returns are to be shipped within thirty days of receipt, at customer expense, to Fenton Gift Shop, 2242 Williams Hwy., Suite 108, Williamstown, WV 26187.

Fenton Gift Shop Presents. . . Snowman Egg on Stand!

We're pleased to offer this 4" Opal Satin Egg on Stand featuring Kim Barley's "Believe" hand painted design. This design was also offered on other shapes within the past year, including the Hurricane Candle Lamp and an Opal Satin Vase.

 

This egg shape is perfect for Kim's whimsical design of a laughing Snowman with an upturned carrot nose. Note those big brown eyes and the golden star accents. She also hand lettered the word "Believe" in white and blue just below the smile.

 

American glass manufacturers have produced eggs since the early 1900s, some years after covered hen boxes became popular. The Fenton Art Glass "5140" Egg on Stand was produced in many colors and patterns during the 1970s and 80s. Fenton began their Collectible Eggs series in 1991. We are pleased to once again offer this Egg on Stand.

Each Believe Egg on Stand is $75. Pre-orders will be accepted until midnight (ET) on Wednesday, January 23, 2019. Please contact Fenton Gift Shop at 1-800-319-7793, ext. 342 or email: purchasing@fentongiftshop.com

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 23, 2019 at 2 p.m. (ET). Items featured this week.

Fenton lamps are special, and this one-of-a-kind hand painted lamp by award-winning Fenton artist Robin Spindler is very special indeed. With the soft, satin finished green opalescent glass for her canvas, Robin designed and hand painted this wonderful depiction of Black-capped Chickadees on pine boughs. Robin's attention to detail is simply remarkable, from the subtle hand painted colors of the birds to the meticulous details of the pine cones and branches. As always with Robin's work, every brushstroke is perfect, and the overall effect is marvelous. This lamp is about 20" tall overall, and the shade diameter is 10". The brass finish hardware complements the glass color very nicely. This one-of-a-kind hand painted lamp is identified, dated and signed inside: "Fenton 2019 hand painted by J. K. Spindler OOAK".

A great one-of-a-kind Valentine's Day gift for the cat enthusiast! The Chessie Box is among the most popular Fenton collectibles, and this splendid one-of-a-kind hand painted "Tuxedo Cat" Chessie Box from Fenton artist Michelle Kibbe is sure to find a new home. This Chessie Box in Opal Satin glass stands 8" tall, and Michelle's talents and skills combined to create some wonderful black and white Tuxedo Cats, from the hand painted "sleepy kitten" imparted by the mould to the other hand painted felines that grace this piece. The back/white contrast is most appealing, and, as always, the eyes are remarkably expressive. Note the hand painted texture effect on the cover and around the base ... and don't overlook those paw prints! "Chessie" was a popular cat character used as a symbol of the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway. They used artwork with a slogan, when traveling on their railway you would "sleep like a kitten". Fenton first created this item especially for the Chesapeake & Ohio railway company. Famous Tuxedo Cats include Felix and Sylvester. Dr. Seussí The Cat in the Hat also features a Tuxedo Cat. This one-of-a-kind hand painted Tuxedo Cat Chessie Box is identified, dated and signed on the underside; "hand painted by M. Kibbe 2019 OOAK".
