You may recall childhood memories of playing on handmade swings when you view the hand painted scene on this impressive 11.25" Opal Satin Vase. It's sure to bring a smile to your face.

 

Michelle Kibbe's hand painted design features a young girl swinging on a handmade swing.

 

From her expression, you can tell she's having a grand time! The details on the face are adorable, especially those big blue eyes! Michelle added blue jeans, white top with stars and a golden yellow jacket. Red ribbons adorn her hair, which is tied in pony tails.

 

Michelle provides a natural frame with the hanging branches of a tree above and spring flowers encirclirg the base. Michelle added pinstripe accents in blue and green to complete this Limited Edition piece. Each Swingin' Gal Vase is $195.


Our 5" Opal Satin Stylized Cat with golden brown eyes has been transformed into a pond scene by Michelle Kibbe. Her scene includes cattails, green and rusty red colored leaves and
three frogs, two of which appear to be attempting to make their way up a branch. . . perhaps to get closer to that cattail! Each Cattails & Frogs Stylized Cat Figurine is $95.

 

Kim Barley loves Halloween and continues her fun, whimsical design style on this 6.25" Opal Satin Witch Figurine.

 

You'll love all the details. . . from the "starry night sky" and the black cat with a crescent moon accent on its collar. . . to the spooky house, flying purple bats and two grinning pumpkins. Note the details on the face and dress! This witch wears an eye mask and holds a smiling pumpkin design treat bag!

 

Kim added a bubbling cauldron necklace and star tattoo on the witch's face. A golden star adorns the hatband and fiery red-blonde hair cascades down the back.

Throughout the years, Fenton Art Glass developed many interesting products for the holidays. Our first Halloween offerings in 2002 included a Witch figurine designed by sculptor Jon Saffell. This Witch has become a part of the Halloween holiday tradition for many Fenton fans. Each Starry Night Witch Figurine is $110.

Robin Spindler's love of horses is evident in her hand painted portrayal of playful foals on our 11" Eggplant Alley Cat Figurine. She calls her design "Frolicking Foals". You'll enjoy this figurine no matter which side is displayed! Robin's artistic skills shine as you can see how she used shape of the Alley Cat to create the design. The tail area has been transformed into a foal lying on the ground. Two more foals meet head to head on the back side of this figurine. Their "hind quarters" are painted on the cat's legs. Robin added colorful flowers and a brown pasture field fence that encircle the base of the figurine. As always, you'll love that ornery grin and those expressive eyes!

 

The Alley Cat is among the most collectible items in Fenton history. This whimsical figurine has also been one of Fenton's most popular items since it was first made in 1970. Fenton collectors just can't seem to get enough of the Alley Cat's characteristic grin! The mould for this piece 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 Frolicking Foals Alley Cat Figurine is $190.

Kim Barley's hand painted design on our 5.5" Opal Satin Owl Figurine celebrates the approaching Halloween season in style!

 

Kim created a festive and fun motif that includes polka dots, a golden moon with white stars, black cats and a grinning pumpkin, falling leaves, and eerie eyes peering out from the base.

 

Note those mesmerizing eyes and the leg stripes and talons! Kim hand lettered the word "BOO" in orange-gold across the front of the chest. Each Boo Owl Figurine is $95.

This 4.5" x 4" Opal Satin Iceberg Paperweight provides an excellent glass canvas for Michelle Kibbe's heartwarming scene of a doe gazing upon a tiny blue bird perched on a pine branch. The doe looks so realistic. . . a tribute to Michelle's artistic talent. A beautiful piece to display all year long! Each Darling Doe Iceberg Paperweight is $80.

The first Fenton Tree (5535) was offered in the 1992 Christmas catalog supplement. The 6.5" tree was created by designer Cathy See. This size tree was initally offered in ruby, green with iced branches or iridized crystal, each accented with a tiny gold bird on one of the branches.

 

Two smaller trees were added a year later and quickly became decorating favorites with Fenton collectors.
 

Kim Barley created a lovelyS seasonal scene of large white roses against a snowy background on our 6.5" Ruby Satin Tree Figurine. She added pine cones and red-orange berries as accents on the snow-covered branches. Each White Roses Tree Figurine is $80.

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, August 14th. Items featured this week. . .
 

Here's a spectacular one-of-a-kind hand painted Alley Cat (11" tall) from Fenton artist Michelle Kibbe. This Alley Cat is satin-finished ruby glass, and the rich ruby color contrasts perfectly with Michelle's hand painted design featuring her depiction of the rare White Peacock. The White Peacock's tail features are breathtaking to see, as Michelle has adapted her hand painting artistry to the features of the Alley Cat itself.

 

The Alley Cat is one of the most beloved items ever associated with Fenton Art Glass, which acquired this mould from the U. S. Glass Co. in the 1960s. This one-of-a-kind satin finished hand painted Ruby Alley Cat is identified, signed and dated inside: "OOAK 2019 hand painted by M. Kibbe".

This 5.5" diameter circular crystal one-of-a-kind paperweight stands tall, and award-winning designer Robin Spindler's innovative creation will make you stand up and take notice! She combined hand painting, reverse hand painting, and intricate sandcarving to create this dramatic three-dimensional visual effect (these photos are really great, but "in person" is simply spectacular!). We can almost hear the Seagulls calls and feel the spray from the waves! This one-of-a-kind hand painted and sandcarved paperweight is identified, signed and dated on the underside: "Fenton 2019 OOAK J. K. Spindler". These Fenton's eBay auctions will end on Wednesday, August 14th.
