The Hunter Green (5.5" dia.) Paperweight and the Marble "Covered Butter Box" were made by Mosser Glass. The other Limited Editions 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.

An adorable gray and white cat peeks out from its hiding place amidst colorful white and yellow flowers on this 5.5" Hunter Green Paperweight. The rich dark green color of the glass provides an excellent background for Michelle Kibbe's hand painted scene. The details on the cat are true-to-life. Imagine what this kitty could be looking at with such curiosity... should it extend that white paw further into the open or perhaps just continue watching while it stays hidden in the flower patch? Each Flower Patch Cat Paperweight is $110.

The perfect companion piece for the Flower Patch Cat Paperweight is this 3.75" Opal Satin Sitting Cat Figurine. Michelle Kibbe created a coordinating design for this figurine which includes the same markings on the cat's face and paws. And don't forget those adorable green eyes! Each Socks the Sitting Cat Figurine is $80.

Kim Barley created a delightful hand painted motif for this 3.25" Opal Satin Frog Figurine. Kim's design includes large florals and a buzzing bumblebee! Note those eyes!

 

Fenton sculptor Jon Saffell developed this whimsical frog figurine for the Fenton Art Glass 2002 product line.

 

This Pond Buddy Frog Figurine is sure to please the young and the young-at-heart! Each Pond Buddy Frog Figurine is $75.

 

Pre-orders for the Flower Patch Cat Paperweight, Socks the Sitting Cat Figurine and the Pond Buddy Frog Figurine will be accepted until midnight (ET) on Monday, July 29, 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.

The impressive 11" size and elegant shape of this Opal Satin vase provides Robin Spindler with the perfect glass canvas to use for her marvelous depiction of a Mountain Lioness and her two cubs. The Lioness looks on serenely while her two playful cubs peer out from the shelter of her body. Robin said the open mouthed cub is hissing. The details on the eyes are mesmerizing. Robin added lush pink flowers and dense foliage in the background. Did you know. . . The mountain lion is known by many names, including cougar, catamount, panther, and puma. Females are called Queens and have an average of two to four cubs per litter. Cubs are born with spots, which usually disappear by the time they are nine months old. Each Mountain Lion Family Vase is $210.

You'll want to add this latest Halloween-themed kitty to your collection! Kim Barley continues to create fun and whimsical Halloween designs for our figurines! This 5" Ruby Stylized Cat has a variety of favorite "Halloween Haunts" including: scraggly whiskers and large green eyes, a grinning pumpkin, a jar filled with eyeballs (perhaps from newts?), a green witch in a frilly purple dress, a flying purple bat and dangling purple spider, an abandoned house with creepy eyes peering out from a window along with a ghost peeking out from the front door, and a black cat. Kim also added black polka dots on the ears and black stripes on the cat's tail! Each Halloween Haunts Stylized Cat Figurine is $95.


We are pleased to offer a new design for our latest shape, the "butter tub" made by Mosser Glass. This version is handcrafted in Marble glass, which is a blend of brown and gray tones that creates the marbled look. Robin Spindler liked the vintage look of this set and chose to paint a design featuring blackberries on the vine. The background is in subtle tones of green and pink. For the lid, she added two buzzing bumblebees and topped it with a pink gemstone accent. The 4.5" x 4.5" size is perfect to use as a treasure box to store 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 Marble Covered Box is satin finished on the outside with a glossy interior. Each Blackberries & Bees Covered Box is $90.

Michelle Kibbe's design on this 5.5" Eggplant Satin Owl Figurine features delicate scrollwork complemented by vintage roses. Two large roses in shades of purple to white dominate the front of this figurine. Michelle added vivid greenery and smaller purple, blue and yellow flowers to complete the look. Those purple and black eyes really capture your attention! Each Vintage Roses Owl Figurine is $95.

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 31st. Items featured this week. . .

With Opal Satin glass for her canvas, Fenton artist Michelle Kibbe created and hand painted this remarkable one-of-a-kind vase (9" tall). Careful airbrushing brought about the subtle green tones for the background, and hand painted foliage frames the vivid hand painted portrait of an inquisitive fabulous true-to-life Chimpanzee. All the colors and hand painted details are simply perfect!

Here's a once in a lifetime opportunity to acquire eight original black-and-white photos that document one of the most significant events in the history of the Fenton Art Glass Company, namely, "the day the stack fell." On June 29, 1940, the chimney above the multi-pot glass melting furnace collapsed. This 80-foot chimney contained about 75,000 bricks and weighed an estimated 280 tons, so there was a great deal of damage. Most of the Fenton Art Glass factory roof came down with the chimney, and glassmaking operations came to a complete standstill for about two months so that reconstruction could take place. There are four 3.5" x 5.5" black and white photos; one photo shows the immediate aftermath of the collapse, and the other three depict some of the debris clearing and reconstruction efforts. There are four 3" x 3.5" photos, three of which were taken from above the area and show an early stage in the rebuilding of the main furnace. All of these photos are in excellent condition. Fenton historian James Measell has worked to identify some of the people shown in the photos, and their names will be included with this purchase. There is only one set of these 8 photos available, so this is really a "once in a lifetime" opportunity!

Award-winning Fenton designer Robin Spindler created this remarkable one-of-a-kind handprinted crystal iceberg paperweight (7" long, 5" tall, and 1.25" thick). The foliage on the front frames the outline of the state of West Virginia that is one the reverse side, and the visual effect is simply stunning! Note the Fenton Art Glass "script F" logo, too. These Fenton's eBay auctions will end on Wednesday, July 31st.
