Fenton Presents. . .
April Fool's Day Jewelry Specials . . . No Foolin'!

We're celebrating April Fool's Day with some specials on handcrafted Fenton Art Glass cored beads and new Limited Editions from Fenton Gift Shop. We'd also like to share these fun facts about April Fool's Day: April Fool's Day is also known as All Fool's Day. Though there are many theories about how this day came to be, one of the most popular is that the Pope changed the calendar in France to the Roman version. People at that time celebrated New Year's Day on April 1. When the calendar was changed, that day moved to January 1. People who didn't know about this change continued celebrating New Year’s on April 1st. People who did know about the change started calling the others "fools" and thus began April Fool’s Day!

Michelle Kibbe's heart-warming scene of a young boy dressed in a straw hat and bib overalls fishing at his favorite spot is well suited for our 11" Opal Satin Alley Cat. The boy's feline companion, an adorable Siamese Cat, keeps him company, watching as the boy gets ready to bring in the small fish dangling on the line. Perhaps the cat is waiting to snatch that fish for a snack! Note the Alley Cat's green eyes. Each Fishing Boy & Friend Alley Cat is $185.

 

Among the most collectible items in Fenton history, the whimsical Alley Cat Figurine with its characteristic grin has been one of Fenton's most popular items since it debuted in 1970. The mould for this piece originated at the U.S. Glass Co. in Tiffin, Ohio during the 1920s and was purchased by Fenton Art Glass in the mid-1960s. 


This 5.75" Opal Satin Owl figurine is hand painted in natural brown tones. Michelle Kibbe's design includes two dragonflies with almost transparent wings, cattails and a big-eyed green frog that is sitting on a large lily pad. A dragonfly hovers on top of the owl's head while another flits near a cattail on the bank. Note the detail on the eyes. Additional views are shown below.

 

This popular figurine was first introduced to the Fenton product line in 1993 as part of the Connoisseur Collection. It was handcrafted in Favrene glass. The mould for this figurine was designed by Dermott Allen, an independent glass designer and artist who currently resides in England. This figurine will make a great addition to any figurine collection.

 

Did you know. . . Cattails grow in or near water and can grow as tall as 10 feet! Some interesting "health benefits" include its ability to reduce pain, speed wound healing, prevent infections, slow bleeding, and may prevent cancer with its antioxidant effect on cancerous cells. Each Pond Pals Owl Figurine is $95.

 

Kim Barley created a unique "beehive" motif for this 5" Opal Satin Fairy Light. A nice blend of golden brown hues provide the beehive in the background. Two bumblebees hover near large sunflowers near the beehive entrance.

 

Kim hand lettered the words "bee blessed" on front of this fairy light shade. Note the polka dot accents and curly-que design on the letters! The base is airbrushed in darker tones.

 

Collectors have enjoyed the charm of Fenton Art Glass Fairy Lights for more than half a century. The flickering flame from a small candle or tea light placed inside a Fenton Fairy Light appears to cast a soft, warm glow throughout the entire room (see first photo shown below). The bee blessed Fairy Light is $95 and includes a battery-operated tea light.

 

Pre-orders for the Fishing Boy & Friend Alley Cat Figurine, Pond Pals Owl Figurine and bee blessed Fairy Light will be accepted until midnight (ET) on Monday, April 1, 2019.

Robin Spindler's impressive design is perfect for the equally impressive size and shape of this 11.75" Opal Satin Vase. Her hand painted "Sunrise Fishermen" scene features the beautiful colors of a misty, early morning sky with the two fishermen portrayed in silhouette. A fisherman holds the creel (basket) and watches while the other one casts his line in an attempt to catch one of the Largemouth Bass. The hand painted details are meticulously executed and a tribute to Robin's talent. Perfect gift for a special "Father's Day" gift! Did you know. . . A popular freshwater gamefish, the Largemouth Bass are prized among fishermen for the skill needed to catch them, as well as the fight they put up on the line. Each Sunrise Fishermen Vase is $210.

Robin Spindler continues the Largemouth Bass design on this nearly 7" tall Crystal Iceberg Paperweight. This Limited Edition Paperweight will definitely make a statement and start a conversation when on display in your home or office! Perfect gift for the fishing enthusiast!

 

This Iceberg shape and the clear crystal of the glass provide a superb canvas for Robin Spindler's depiction of a lone fisherman angling for the Largemouth Bass in the foreground. Note the large dragonfly that is dangerously close to the mouth of the bass.

 

Robin used a reverse-painting technique on this paperweight by creating the sunrise and fisherman part of her design on the back side and the largemouth bass jumping to catch the dragonfly on the front. These two parts combine to create a unique three-dimensional look on this paperweight. Front, back and side views are also shown in the photo at left. Each Sunrise Fisherman Iceberg Paperweight is $110.

Our latest fun Halloween-themed design from Kim Barley is named "Freaky Friday!" Kim features several popular symbols of Halloween on our 5.5" Opal Satin Ghost Figurine. The body is airbrushed in dark sky tones with a smiling full moon surrounded by flying bats and black and white stars. Kim hand lettered the "Freaky Friday!" message followed by the word "EEK". Three black cats appear to approach a trio of colorful witch hats, including a large purple one with a gold buckle and the word "BOO" on the front of the hat. Note the heart-shaped fur patch on the black cat that holds the golden star wand. Kim also used interesting shapes for the face ─ an orange circle and a golden triangle for the eyes with a white triangular nose. She even added vampire teeth! A blue pumpkin with a whimsical smile, the silhouette of a witch's head and a hand lettered "13th" message complete the look on this "Freaky Friday" Ghost! Each Freaky Friday Ghost Figurine is $115.

 

Pre-orders for the Sunrise Fishermen Vase and Paperweight and the Freaky Friday Ghost Figurine will be accepted until midnight (ET) on Wednesday, April 3rd, 2019. To place your pre-order, 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.

"Blue Belle" Bridesmaid Doll Figurine from Fenton Gift Shop. . .

Robin Spindler created this lovely design on our 7" Robin's Egg Blue Bridesmaid Doll Figurine.

This spectacular one-of-a-kind hand painted lamp by award-winning Fenton designer Robin Spindler combines several of the depictions of birds that Fenton enthusiasts have come to enjoy at their homes over the years. This lamp has Cardinals, Goldfinches and Bluebirds! Each hand painted pair (males and females) is perfectly executed ... not a feather out of place! As with all of Robin's work, the hand painted colors are rich and vibrant ... so real that we can almost hear the distinctive songs of each! The hand painted leaves, foliage and vividly colored berries frame each bird pair perfectly, and this lamp is simply gorgeous when viewed from any angle! The Opal Satin glass shade is a shape known as the "Mariner's lamp," and it stands 13.75" tall. Note the distinctive tri-crimp, a real tribute to the skills of Fenton glassworkers. The shade rests in shiny brass high-quality hardware that is 10" wide across the handles.
