The elegant shape and 11" size of this Opal Satin Vase provides the glass canvas for Michelle Kibbe's lovely floral design, including blooming roses in hues of purple, blue, white, and pale pink. Michelle created a soft pink-lavender background and added smaller clusters of flowers which encircle the vase. Delicate vertical white striping, along with thin color bands encircle the top section of the vase to create the beautiful look. .  . the perfect vase to display in your home with or without a flower arrangement! Each Pretty Roses Vase is $190 and is limited to just six vases.

Michelle Kibbe created this marvelous Halloween scene on our 5.75" Ruby Satin Ghost Figurine. A witch on her broom, with her cape flowing out behind her, flies in front of a full moon. Bat companions follow closely behind the witch. The base of this figurine features a whimsical haunted house, headstones and a fence with pumpkins on the vine. Place a tea light underneath to create an eerie glow for Halloween! Michelle added headstones on the back, including one with a "RIP" inscription. Each Night Flight Ghost Figurine is $115.

This Jade Satin Stylized Cat Figurine (5") is sure to become a favorite! Kim Barley created this beautiful floral design of stylized flowers, including a large Lily in vibrant golden-orange hues. She added a sprig of petite purple blooms on top of the head around the bluish-lavender ears. Kim also added this soft shading around the base of the figurine. A bumblebee hovers near the largest lily. Note the expression with these emerald green eyes and orange nose! Each Lily Bee Stylized Cat Figurine is $95 and is limited to 14.

Robin Spindler transformed this 11" Eggplant Satin (NEW Color!) Alley Cat Figurine into a "Scottish Wildcat". The Scottish Wildcat resembles a domestic Tabby Cat. Robin created the look of a thick coat with dark, wide striping on the tail and body. Note the Alley Cat's characteristic grin and expressive eyes! Did you know. . . The elusive Scottish Wildcat is found in the Scottish highlands. They are cunning hunters with a bigger brain and more powerful jaws than domestic cats.

 

Among the most collectible items in Fenton history, the Alley Cat figurine has also been one of Fenton's most popular items since its debut in 1970. The mould originated at the U.S. Glass Co. in Tiffin, Ohio during the 1920s and was purchased by Fenton Art Glass in the mid-1960s. Since that time, this Alley Cat has been made in a rainbow of colors and decorative treatments. Each Scottish Wildcat Alley Cat Figurine is $195.

Robin Spindler's hand painted design on 3.25" long Opal Satin Figurine resembles a "Common Toad". Note the mottled  dark brown to sandy coloring of the body. Robin's design depicts the broad, squat body and warty skin of this amphibian. Note the orange-red eyes with the black slits! Did you know. . . Common toads are widespread, especially in mainland Britain. They also tend to walk rather than hop. Each Common Toad Figurine is $75.


Collectors have enjoyed the charm of Fenton fairy lights for more than half a century. The flickering flame from a small candle inside a Fenton Fairy Light always seems to warm an entire room. This 5" Opal Fairy Light is sure to please cat enthusiasts!

 

Kim Barley created a unique design featuring a large orange tabby kitten peering out of the darkness. Kim added white stars and paw prints and golden curly-que accents on the shade. She sprayed the Opal Satin base in a light lime green color. Front and back views are shown in the photo. This 5" Fairy Light is also great to display during the Halloween season!

 

Each Orange Tabby Kitten Fairy Light is $95 and includes a battery-operated tea light.

Our popular 7" Bridesmaid Doll Figurine, handcrafted in Blue Satin glass, is adorned in a dress featuring stylized flowers in hues of blue, purple and white. A cute, wide-eyed white kitten gazes sweetly on the front of the dress. Designed by Michelle Kibbe, this design includes a sash and bow in a cross-hatch design. The bouquet flowers complement the blue-toned blossoms on the dress. Michelle added a petite flower spray at the neckline and above the sash. Each White Kitty Bridesmaid Doll Figurine is $95.

 

Pre-orders for the Scottish Wildcat Alley Cat, Common Toad Figurine, Orange Tabby Kitten Fairy Light, and White Kitty Bridesmaid Doll Figurine will be accepted until midnight (ET) on Wednesday, June 12, 2019. To pre-order any of these Limited Editions, please call Fenton Gift Shop: 1-800-319-7793, ext. 342 or send us an email to: purchasing@fentongiftshop.com and include the names of the items you want to purchase in the subject line.

Fenton Art Glass eBay Auctions. . .
Here's your opportunity to own a beautiful "one-of-a-kind" art glass creation or items from Fenton's past through our weekly eBay auctions. Fenton's eBay auctions will end at 2 p.m. (ET) on Wednesday, June 12. Items featured this week. . .

Here's a beautiful one-of-a-kind hand painted basket (6.5" tall) from Fenton artist Michelle Kibbe. The opaque light
blue glass (Sky Blue) is satin finished, providing the perfect canvas for Michelle's elaborate, intricate hand painted
work. You'll like the stylized butterflies, hand painted in turquoise and brown tones, and the hand painted scrollwork inside the basket and around the base is simply amazing! Note the twisted rib handle. The handler's mark is that of Jon Anderson, a skilled glassworker whose handler's mark was one of the last still in use when Fenton announced its closure in 2007. This basket has the Fenton script F logo as well as the lettering "USA". This one-of-a-kind hand painted basket is identified, signed and dated on the underside: "hand painted by M. Kibbe 2019 OOAK".

Award-winning Fenton designer Robin Spindler created and hand painted this splendid one-of-a-kind iceberg paperweight. You'll love the realistic foliage and the vivid Goldfish from any angle of view, as they are remarkably
lifelike on crystal glass. All the hand painted details are meticulously executed, and the results are simply amazing!
This paperweight has a three-dimensional effect with the blue waves of the water and the goldfish in the background and foreground. Check out the hand lettered sign that reads: Fenton Gift Shop! This one-of-a-kind hand painted crystal iceberg paperweight (7 tall by 5.5 wide) is identified, signed and dated on the underside: "Fenton 2019 hand painted by J. K. Spindler OOAK".

For many years at Fenton Art Glass, these were the "keys to the kingdom," namely, the office of Frank M. Fenton
and the doors to the extensive secure Fenton Museum storage areas that housed hundreds of items of Fenton
glass. The key to Frank's office is marked "FAGCO" and the key to the storage areas is marked "SM". We've added
a keychain with a Dave Fetty pendant (1.5" diameter) that is marked with Dave's personal stamp. It is also signed
by Dave. There won't be any other key sets like this one! These Fenton's eBay auctions will end at 2 p.m. (ET) on Wednesday, June 12.
