First made in 1970, this whimsical 11" Alley Cat figurine has also been one of Fenton's most popular items. Fenton collectors just can't seem to get enough of the Alley Cat's characteristic grin! 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 then, this Alley Cat has been made in many colors and decorative treatments. This 11" Alley Cat was made at Mosser Glass in the new Eggplant color and we're sure it will become a collector favorite!

 

Michelle Kibbe added her artistic touch to this figurine with a beautiful butterfly and floral design. The purple-red of the Eggplant color really shows off the white and yellow of the daisies as well as the gold and black details on the butterfly. Michelle added a sprig of flowers on the top of the figurine as well as a cluster of daisies and purple flowers on the back side. The hand painting on the butterfly is meticulously executed with fine details on the wings. Each Butterfly & Daisies Alley Cat Figurine is $195.

 

NOTE: Four Limited Edition items in this week's offering (Cats and Fairy Lights) have the same name and design painted on different shapes, so please be sure to specify which figurine or fairy light you wish to order... or order each piece for a complete set!

Michelle continues her lovely "Butterfly & Daisies" design on our 5" Stylized Cat Figurine, also handcrafted in Eggplant. This figurine will make the perfect companion piece to the Alley Cat shown above. Sculptor Jon Saffell designed the (5065) Cat figurine, known as the Stylized Cat, in 1999, much to the delight of our cat fanciers! Each Butterfly & Daisies Stylized Cat Figurine is $95.

The Bridesmaid Doll Figurine was introduced in the Fenton Art Glass product line in the early 1990s (5228) and quickly became popular with figurine collectors.

 

Our 7" Opal Satin Bridesmaid Doll Figurine features a whimsical Halloween design by Kim Barley. This figurine has large, expressive eyes, ruby red lips and blonde hair that is blended with soft shades of pink. The multi-hued skirt has large, colorful polka dots. Black polka dots adorn the front of the dress, which also has golden ruffles.

 

A large black cat and witch's hat are on the front and a large spider web cascades from the waist of the dress. Each Mz. Gothina Bridesmaid Doll Figurine is $110.

Pre-orders for the Butterfly & Daisies Alley Cat, Butterfly & Daisies Stylized Cat Figurine and the Mz. Gothina Bridesmaid Doll Figurine will be accepted until midnight (ET) on Monday, June 24, 2019. To pre-order, please call Fenton Gift Shop: 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. We may have several people with the same first name, so we also need a last name. Thank you!

Another popular item with collectors is our 2.75" Mouse Figurine (5148), which has been in the Fenton line since the 1980s in a variety of colors. Kim Barley's hand painted "I LOVE BAKING" design on our Opal Satin Mouse Figurine will delight one and all, especially figurine collectors!

 

Kim dressed this girl mouse in a green dress with a white apron with a sprig of cherries on the front. Kim added a matching polka dot hair bow and cherry accents on each ear. Note the red heart-shaped nose and that adorable expression! Kim added a rolling pin and a cherry pie on the ears as well as hand lettering the "I LOVE BAKING" motif. Other hand painted details include a mixing bowl and spoon and bright ruby red shoes. See photos above for additional views. Each I Love Baking Mouse Figurine is $80.

 

Below: Our 8" Lighthouse was handcrafted in Opal Satin glass (5" base) and crystal (3" top) using Fenton Art Glass moulds that were not used for production before glassmaking halted at Fenton in 2011.

Robin Spindler created a lovely summertime beach scene featuring a large brown pelican gliding along the frothy waves of water while two black skimmers and their young explore a sandy beach. A beautiful golden sun glows in the background sky. Note the soft light that emits from the base as well as the clear crystal top when you insert a tea light in each area of this Fairy Light.

 

Two battery- operated tea lights are provided with each Fairy Light.

Each Black Skimmers & Pelican Lighthouse Fairy Light + Tea Lights is $130.


Each Black Skimmers & Pelican Fairy Light + Tea Light is $95.

Collectors have long enjoyed the charm of Fenton fairy lights. The flickering flame of a tea light or candle inside a Fenton Fairy Light seems to warm an entire room.

 

Our 5" tall Opal Satin Fairy Light (7300) provides an excellent glass canvas for Robin Spindler's "Black Skimmers & Pelican" design. The rainbow colors of the sky  provide a lovely background for the flying Pelican and the Black Skimmers and their young.

We are pleased to offer two NEW designs for our Ruby Ringholder! These 3" diameter Daisy & Button pattern Ringholders are handcrafted in lustrous Ruby glass that really shimmers in the light! Michelle Kibbe created two large floral designs and you may choose one or both ─ a golden Sunflower or a white Hibiscus bloom. Michelle added her initials on the base of each Ringholder (see arrow). Each Ringholder is $34.50 + tax for in-store purchase or $42.50 with USPS shipping included. Please specify design when ordering: Sunflower or Hibiscus Flower.

Pre-orders for the Black Skimmers & Pelican Lighthouse Fairy Light, the Black Skimmers & Pelican Fairy Light, the I Love Baking Mouse Figurine and the Sunflower or Hibiscus Ruby Ringholder will be accepted until midnight (ET) on Wednesday, June 26, 2019.

Fenton Art Glass eBay Auctions. . .

Here's your opportunity to own a beautiful "one-of-a-kind" Fenton Art Glass creation through our weekly Fenton Art Glass eBay auctions. These Fenton's eBay auctions will end at 2 p.m. (ET) on Wednesday, June 26. Items featured this week. . .


Here's a wonderful one-of-a-kind tribute to America and to the majesty of the graceful Bald Eagle from Fenton artist Michelle Kibbe. Made of Opal Satin glass, this vase stands 8.75" tall. Delicate airbrushing created the sky, and Michelle added a misty mountain range in the background. Her depiction of the Bald Eagle is simply breathtaking ... not a feather out of place and the splendid details will make you salute our national bird! Michelle’s scene depicts a lone Eagle as it perches on a tree branch on the front of the vase. A majestic mountain range and pine trees are seen in the landscape. This one-of-a-kind vase is identified, dated and signed on the underside: "hand painted by M. Kibbe 2019 OOAK".

Award-winning Fenton designer Robin Spindler has a special fondness for horses, and we're delighted to see her creativity and hand painting skills on this one-of-a-kind hand painted Fenton Foal figurine (3.75" long), which Robin recently discovered among the “design samples” she completed in 2018. The glass is Opal Satin, and Robin chose natural colors for the hand painting. We're glad she found this figurine, as the details are excellent, from the red bridle to the saddle blanket and the decorative feathers. The mould for the Fenton Foal figurine was designed by Suzi Whitaker, and it soon became quite a hit with collectors. This one-of-a-kind hand painted Fenton Foal figurine is identified, signed and dated on the underside: "Fenton 2018 OOAK J. K. Spindler". These Fenton's eBay auctions will end at 2 p.m. (ET) on Wednesday, June 26.
