NEW Limited Editions from Fenton Gift Shop. . .

We are pleased to offer these Fenton Gift Shop 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 Hunter Green (5.5"diameter) Round Paperweight was made by Mosser Glass. The other Limited Editions were made by Mosser, using the Fenton moulds, for the Fenton Gift Shop.

We're pleased to continue offering the "Butter Box" in a new color for us, Black Raspberry. Michelle Kibbe's hand painted catfish design encircles the lid and box. Her true-to-life depiction of this fish includes remarkable details, including their characteristic whiskers! Did you know. . . Catfish are named after our furry felines because they share a distinguishing feature: whiskers! The long, whiskery projections on a catfish are technically called "barbels". These sensory organs allow catfish to smell and taste, enabling them to hunt in dark and murky waters.
 

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! Also a great keepsake gift for the fisherman or woman in your life! This Black Raspberry Covered Box is satin finished on the outside and has a glossy interior. Each Catfish Delight Covered Box is $95.

Now is the perfect time to pre-order this Limited Edition Santa with list for your seasonal decorating! The Santa figurines designed by sculptor Jon Saffell in the 1990s quickly became very popular Fenton collectibles as well as holiday gifts. This 8" Opal Satin figurine features a fun "Snowflakes and Snowmen" design by Michelle Kibbe. She created a trio of snowmen on Santa's fur-trimmed coat. They are trying to capture the glistening snowflakes that are falling from a wintry night sky. Each snowman has bright red buttons (note the heart-shaped ones!), a colorful scarf and mittens. A black top hat with a red and white striped band adorns the head of one snowman. Santa holds his "naughty or nice" list, which has a blue and white checkered pattern. He also has a firm grip on a brilliant red bag that is stuffed full of goodies. Each Snowflakes & Snowmen Santa w/List Figurine is $125.


Since their debut in the year 2000, the Fenton snow people figurines have delighted collectors and continued to add seasonal cheer to many homes. Designed by Fenton sculptor Jon Saffell, our 4.25" Snowman and 4" Snowlady figurines have been in a grouping called "Frosty Friends" for several years.

 

Kim Barley adds her whimsical touch and fondness for the Halloween season with her "Burt & Bea Boo" design on this Opal Satin Snowcouple. A large orange pumpkin with a toothy grin and a star-shaped eye adorns the bottom half of each figurine. Kim added a colorful triangular banner with handlettered "BOO" at the waist.

Each figurine has been hand painted in a green jacket with purple trim, as well as a coordinating hat with star accents, black scarf with yellow polka dots and black mittens. Those happy expressions are sure to bring a smile! The Burt & Bea Boo Snowcouple Figurine Pair is $140.

Pre-orders for the Catfish Delight Covered Box, Snowflakes & Snowmen Santa w/List Figurine and the Burt & Bea Boo Snowcouple Figurine Pair will be accepted until midnight (ET) on Monday, August 19, 2019. 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 rich green color of this 5.5" diameter Hunter Green Paperweight provides an excellent glass canvas for Robin Spindler's beautiful scene of a Ruby-throated Hummingbird seeking nectar from vibrant orange-red blossoms. The hand painted details are meticulously executed. A beautiful piece to display all year long. Each Ruby-throated Hummingbird Paperweight is $110.

A collector favorite, the Fenton Art Glass "5140 Egg on Stand" was produced in many colors and patterns during the 1970s and 80s. Fenton began their "Collectible Eggs" series in 1991. This Egg on Stand features the base that was redesigned by Fenton sculptor Jon Saffell. This 3.75" Opal Satin Egg on Stand features a lovely hand painted Ruby-throated Hummingbird and sylized hibiscus flowers in lush pink with petite purple flower accents designed by Michelle Kibbe. She added a soft cream background with pink crosshatch pattern on the base as well as a delicate pink band around the design. Each Hibiscus Hummingbird Egg on Stand Figurine is $75.

Kim Barley continues her inspirational message design on this 3.5" Sitting Bear Figurine. The Believe, Faith and Hope versions were offered in previous newsletters. Kim transformed this Opal Satin figurine into a small gray bear. A bumble bee buzzes on top of its head. Kim added details on the paws as well as green leaves. A brown log on one leg is hand lettered with the word "LOVE". Note the highlights around the eyes and that adorable expression! Each Love Message Bear Figurine is $75.


Robin Spindler channeled another era to create this unique "tie dye" look for our 4.25" long Opal Satin Dinosaur Figurine. Robin painted the figurine and then airbrushed it overall. The result is an amazing blend of multi-colored brushstrokes producing a variegated pattern for a "tie-dye" design. You'll see shades of blue, red, yellow, orange, and green in this Dinosaur! We named this Limited Edition "Tie-Dye Dino" and we're sure this figurine will appeal to the young as well as the young-at-heart! Note the Dinosaur's friendly grin. Each Tie-Dye Dino 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 at 2 p.m. ET on Wednesday, August 21. Items featured this week. . .

Animal figurines on the fount as pressed are very popular with Fenton collectors, and Fenton artist Kim Barley has really sounded "toot toot toot!" with this one-of-a-kind hand painted Sitting Bear figurine on fount (6.5" tall overall) in Opal Satin glass. This happy fellow is dressed in traditional blue railroad garb as the Engineer Bear, and Kim has added lots of interesting hand painted details: railroad signs, tracks around the fount, etc. Don't miss those wonderfully expressive eyes! This figurine is signed and dated on the fount.

The sight of a male Scarlet Tanager bird is something one never forgets, and award winning Fenton designer Robin Spindler has used her artistic talents and hand painting skills to create this splendid one-of-a-kind pair of figurines. These are Opal Satin glass, and each measures 3.75" long and stands 3" tall. The hand painted colors are remarkably true to life, as Robin's meticulous hand painting captures the vivid red and bits of yellow of the male Scarlet Tanager as well as the subdued green tones of the female Scarlet Tanager. These one-of-a-kind Scarlet Tanager figurines are identified, signed and dated on the undersides. These Fenton's eBay auctions will end on Wednesday, August 21.
