Collectible Eggs series in 1991.

With marvelous Fenton Mulberry glass for her
canvas, Fenton artist Kim Barley designed and hand painted
this splendid one-of-a-kind vase (9" tall). Kim's floral motif
is nicely detailed and well executed. There's even a gemstone accent
on the hand painted dragonfly! You'll enjoy the various colors
within and among the hand painted Hydrangea blossoms and the
delicate foliage. Mulberry is a cased glass, consisting of
gold ruby glass cased with Azure Blue glass. The shading will
vary from piece to piece, and this vase displays the Azure
Blue in the crimped top as well as in the lower areas of the
vase. The topmost areas of the vase are shiny, and the body of
the vase is satin finished. This one-of-a-kind hand painted
Mulberry vase is identified, dated and signed on the
underside: "Kim Barley 2019 OOAK".
Is this one-of-a-kind hand painted Chocolate
glass figurine (3.5" long) from Fenton artist Michelle Kibbe a
Frog or a Toad? We'll let you decide! As always, Michelle's
work is wonderfully detailed, from the delicate blue dragonfly
and green foliage on the back of the figurine to the look of
texture on the legs (is it ready to hop?). The satin fished
glass is a warm Chocolate color, and this glass is a classic
Fenton color, first made by Jacob Rosenthal about 1900, a few
years before he became the first manager at Fenton Art Glass.
This Chocolate glass figurine was made at Fenton Art Glass
about 2005, when Fenton's Chocolate was revived and enjoyed
great popularity among collectors. This one-of-a-kind hand
painted Frog/Toad figurine is identified, dated and signed on
the underside: "M. Kibbe 2019 OOAK". These Fenton's eBay auctions will end at
2 p.m. (ET) on Wednesday, June 19.
