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. We are pleased to introduce a new shape to our Limited Editions product line ─ a Covered Box made by Mosser Glass. The other Limited Edition items include a large (5.5" dia.) crystal paperweight made by Mosser Glass and a smaller crystal paperweight (3.5" dia.) that was made by Fenton Art Glass. The other items were made by Mosser, using the Fenton moulds, for the Fenton Gift Shop. RETURN POLICY: Returns are accepted on "undamaged" items. Returns are to be shipped within 30 days of receipt, at customer expense, to the Fenton Gift Shop, 2242 Williams Hwy., Suite 108, Williamstown, WV 26187.

This whimsical Alley Cat figurine has also been one of Fenton's most popular items since it was first made in 1970. Since then, we've seen a multitude of creative designs! Michelle Kibbe adds another unique design with hand painted Monarch butterflies and Lilacs on this 11" Eggplant Alley Cat. The delicate brushstrokes on the two butterflies are amazing and true to life! The purple and white hues of the Lilacs blend beautifully with the Eggplant glass. Each Monarchs & Lilacs Alley Cat Figurine is $195.


We are pleased to introduce a new shape to our product line ─ a Jadeite glass "butter tub" made by Mosser Glass.
Before refrigerators were used in households, butter was stored in a round or rectangular covered dish. This 4.5" x 4.5" Jadeite piece is very versatile. Use it as a treasure box to store your precious keepsakes or as a candy box. . . or think "outside the box" and come up with your own use for this beautiful Limited Edition set! This set is satin finished on the outside and has a glossy interior.

 

Michelle Kibbe adds to the beauty of the Jadeite glass with her hand painted design with beautiful purple and white butterflies and color coordinating flowers. Delicate scrollwork and crosshatch details with green bands complete this set. Each Butterflies & Floral Covered Box is $100.

Handcrafted in Eggplant glass with a satin finish, this 2.75" Mouse figurine features Kim Barley's popular "Butterfly & Lilacs" design. This design was most recently offered on our Owl fgurine in late June, 2019.

 

Kim painted the colorful aqua-blue and gold butterfly on one of the mouse's ears. Clusters of lovely lilacs in shades of purple adorn the head, body and the other ear.

 

Note the heart-shaped nose, white whiskers and that adorable expression! Each Butterfly & Lilacs Mouse Figurine is $80.

Pre-orders for the Monarchs & Lilacs Alley Cat Figurine, Butterflies & Floral Covered Box and the Butterfly & Lilacs Mouse Figurine will be accepted until midnight (ET) on Monday, July 22, 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 people with the same first name, so we also need a last name. Thank you!

Collectors have enjoyed the charm of Fenton fairy lights for more than half a century. The flickering flame from a small candle or tea light placed inside a Fenton Fairy Light always seems to warm an entire room. For this two-part 5" Opal Satin Fairy Light, Kim Barley's delightful design includes bright daisies with golden centers and petite white flowers and polka dots with a fabulous dragonfly fluttering above the scene. The base is Opal Satin with light blue tones and Kim painted the top in a blend of green and blue. Each Daisies & Dragonfly Fairy Light is $90.

Robin Spindler goes back in time with her design on our Opal Satin Snowcouple. Look closely at the faces of the Snowlady and Snowman and you may be reminded of a famous 1930 painting by the American artist Grant Wood. Robin used a thin, short black line to create the resolute expression on the face of each figurine. The 3.75" Snowlady is attired in a 1930s style brown dress rickrack accents and a cameo brooch. One hand holds a basket of red apples. The 4" Snowman sports white spectacles, denim bib overalls and a dark gray jacket with matching hat. He is holding a wooden cane. A colorful orange pumpkin with curling green vines rests by his side. Each Stylized American Gothic Snowcouple Figurine Pair is $140.

Robin Spindler used her reverse painting technique to create this splendid scene of two does eating apples on this 7" Crystal Iceberg Paperweight. Her scene has a three-dimensional effect with the front half of each deer, as well as the fallen apples, appearing in the foreground. The tall trees and back sections of the deer are in the background. Each Feeding Time Paperweight is $110.

This Fenton Art Glass Crystal 3.5" diameter round paperweight is painted in a soft purple hue. The bottom area has a flat section for display purposes. Michelle Kibbe thought her "Moonlight Hoot Owl" design would work well on this round paperweight and we think you'll agree! Tall pine trees and a dark gray-purple sky appear in the background with the Hoot Owl perched on a large, leafy branch in the front. We placed a small tealight just behind the paperweight to see if it would glow... see for yourself the unique effect it created (far right photo)! Each Moonlight Hoot Owl Paperweight is $80.

 

Pre-orders for the Daisies & Dragonfly Fairy Light, Stylized American Gothic Snowcouple Figurine Pair, Feeding Time Paperweight, and the Moonlight Hoot Owl Paperweight will be accepted until midnight (ET) on Wednesday, July 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 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!

Fenton Art Glass eBay Auctions. . .

Here's your opportunity to own a beautiful "one-of-a-kind" Fenton Art Glass creation or items from Fenton's history through our weekly Fenton Art Glass eBay auctions. These Fenton's eBay auctions will end on Wednesday, July 24.

Items featured this week. . .

 

NOTE: Due to an internet/phone outage and the eBay auctions ending earlier than planned, we are including an item from last week in case you didn't have a chance to place your bid!

 

With satin finished opaque Eggplant glass for her canvas, Fenton artist Michelle Kibbe created and hand painted this splendid Stylized Cat figurine (note the expressive amber eyes!). Purple/blue pine trees set the scene for the glorious full moon and a delightful "Hoot Owl" perched on a tree branch ... just look at those big eyes! Designed by Fenton sculptor Jon Saffell in the 1990s, the Stylized Cat figurine quickly became a favorite among Fenton collectors. This one-of-a-kind Cat figurine (5.25" tall) is identified, dated and signed on the underside: "M. Kibbe 2019 OOAK".

For more than 35 years glass collectors enjoyed visiting the Fenton Museum. The glass on display included articles from Nineteenth Century glass companies in the Ohio Valley─such as Hobbs, Riverside and Royal─as well as Fenton glass from 1907 onward. Here are the keys to the Fenton Museum ...from the front door (marked "GM") ... and to the "Theater" where folks could see the Fenton movie ... as well as keys to the display cabinets and even the file cabinet where Jennifer M. kept her lists and correspondence. We've added a keychain with a Dave Fetty pendant (1.5" dia.) 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!

 

The various Bear figurines are among the most popular collectibles from Fenton Art Glass, and this one-of-a-kind hand painted Reclining Bear figurine (about 4" long) by Fenton artist Michelle Kibbe is sure to find a prominent place in a lucky person's collection. We'll call this one the "honeybee bear," as Michelle's expert hand painting on Opal Satin glass created a splendid look. Note the details ... from the honeybees to the heart-shaped nose! As always, the eyes are remarkably expressive. This one-of-a-kind hand painted Reclining Bear figurine is identified, dated and signed on the underside: "hand painted by M. Kibbe 2019 OOAK". These Fenton's eBay auctions will end on Wednesday, July 24.
