NEW Limited Editions from Fenton Gift Shop. . .

We are pleased to offer these new Limited Edition selections for pre-orders. Each piece features a hand painted design and will be signed, numbered and dated by one of our talented designers. The large (5.5" dia.) crystal paperweight was made by Mosser Glass and the smaller crystal paperweight (3.5" dia.) was made by Fenton Art Glass. The other Limited Edition pieces were also handcrafted by Mosser, using the Fenton moulds, for the Fenton Gift Shop.

Kim Barley captures the spirit of the Hawaiian islands with her hand painted "Aloha" design on this 8" Lighthouse Fairy Light. The lush raspberry colors of the flowers and the colorful hues of the palm trees and foliage blend perfectly with the sunset background colors. Seabirds are flying in the distant sky.

 

Already pleasing to the eye, check out the effect when you add a tea light inside the base (inset photo)! This 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. Each Aloha Lighthouse Fairy Light is $130 with tea lights included and is limited to 17.

Below: Michelle Kibbe chose a colorful bird as her subject for this 7" wide x 5" tall Mystic Ice Iceberg Paperweight. Her depicts a pair of "Blue Tit" birds perched on a branch. The blue tinted color of the paperweight provides an excellent canvas for Michelle's rendition of the Blue Tit. Found in Europe, the Middle East, northern Africa, and western Asia, this petite bird has a lovely blend of feathers in blue, yellow and white that makes it very attractive. The Blue Tit is an easily recognized garden visitor for bird watchers. Michelle added vibrant blue, purple and white flowers as a frame above the pair of birds. Each Blue Tit Iceberg Paperweight is $100.

This 5" Opal Satin Stylized Cat features a watchful "Hoot Owl" by Michelle Kibbe.

 

She airburshed the entire figurine in a soft blue color with darker blue tips accenting the ears. Michelle then added tall trees in different shades of purple in the background. A full moon dominates the sky behind the trees. 

 

Note the large golden eyes of this small owl.

 

Sculptor Jon Saffell designed the (5065) Cat figurine, known as the Stylized Cat, in 1999, much to the delight of our cat fanciers! A great gift for the cat enthusiast!

 

Each Moonlight Hoot Owl Stylized Cat is $95.

Robin Spindler chose our Georgia Blue Alley Cat Figurine (approx. 11") as her color choice for this fabulous underwater scene. The different shades of light blue in this figurine create the feel of moving water. Robin created a scene with goldfish and even a colorful eel! The underwater foliage and the bubbles enhance the background. Note the large castle on the front of this figurine. Robin added a golden tint to the ears and nose.

 

Among the most collectible items in Fenton history, the Alley Cat has been one of Fenton's most popular items since it debuted in 1970. Fenton collectors just can't seem to get enough of the Alley Cat's characteristic grin! The Alley Cat 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 Goldfish Castle Alley Cat Figurine is $190.

Robin Spindler chose to depict a favorite winter scene for this 5.5" diameter Cobalt Paperweight. Scenes of the Canaan Valley in West Virginia remain one of our most popular designs. Robin features a pair of Cardinals perched on a tree branch in a snow-covered landscape. Robin added a patriotic touch with 13 white stars that encircle the scene. The hand painted details of the snowy scene are beautiful to behold. Robin will sign each paperweight "Fenton 2019 Betsy Ross American Icon" and also add the Limited Edition number. Each Betsy Ross American Icon Paperweight is $110.

Several Fentons fell hard for sculptor Suzi Whitaker's new horse figurine mould in 2006. The final result was named the "Fenton Foal" and has since become a collector favorite. We are pleased to offer this 3.75" long Fenton Foal figurine in Opal Satin. Kim Barley created a hand painted design that resembles a "paint" horse with a black coat covered with large white markings. This figurine also has "socks", which is when the white markings extend above the top of the hoof, but stops below the fetlock. The Foal's mane has wonderful texture, and the eyes are remarkably expressive.
Did you know. . . The terms "paint" and "pinto" are sometimes both used to describe "paint" horses. But "paint" horses are the breed and "pinto" is actually the coloring of the horse. Pintos have a mixture of white and colored areas on their bodies. Each Paint Fenton Foal Figurine is $80 and is limited to 29.

Michelle Kibbe hand painted our 3.5" Opal Satin Songbird Figurine as a stylized "Tree Swallow". The details are true-to-life with delicate feathers. The eyes are remarkable, as if the bird is looking right at you! Perfect gift for a bird watcher or a figurine collector! Did you know. . . Only male tree swallows sing. Tree swallows mostly eat flying insects. They feed in flight, and can also catch insects on the surface of water or on other surfaces. Each Tree Swallow Songbird Figurine is $75 and is limited to 14.

 

Pre-orders for the Goldfish Castle Alley Cat Figurine, Betsy Ross American Icon Paperweight, Paint Fenton Foal Figurine, and the Tree Swallow Songbird Figurine will be accepted until midnight (ET) on Wednesday, July 17, 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 as well as your full name and daytime phone number. You may also request we add your email address to our mailing list for future Limited Edition specials!
