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.
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
Our 7" Opal Satin Bridesmaid Doll Figurine

figurine has large, expressive eyes, ruby red lips and

polka dots adorn the front of the dress, which also has

Another popular item with collectors is our 2.75"

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

and bright ruby red shoes. See photos above for

Below: Our 8" Lighthouse was
handcrafted in Opal Satin glass (5" base) and crystal

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

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
