Right: Michelle Kibbe created a delightful design of a black kitty and colorful sunflowers on our 6" Opal Satin Pumpkinhead figurine. The kitty looks like it may be attempting to climb in to the patchwork bag being held by the Pumpkinhead.

 

The head is painted in a vibrant orange with green top and an even brighter orange carrot nose. Michelle added a wide smile and laughing eyes. This figurine is adorned in bright blue with a black checkerboard with large sunflowers. Moon, star and polka dot accents complete the look for the top half of this Pumpkinhead. 

 

Additional views are shown below. The mould for this figurine was designed by sculptor Suzi Whitaker. "Pumpkinhead" joined Fenton's cast of colorful Halloween characters in 2007. Michelle's design is sure to bring a smile no matter what the season. . . perfect to display all year long! Each Sunflower Kitty Pumpkinhead Figurine is $110.

Below: Throughout the years, Fenton Art Glass developed interesting products especially for the holidays. Our first Halloween offerings in 2002 included a Witch figurine designed by sculptor Jon Saffell. This Fenton Art Glass Witch has become a part of the Halloween holiday tradition for many Fenton fans. We are pleased to continue this tradition with new designs by our talented artists at Fenton Gift Shop.

As many collectors know, Kim Barley loves Halloween. She continues her whimsical design style on this 6.25" Opal Satin Witch Figurine. You'll love all of the adorable hand painted details. . . from the stack of coffee cups to the hand lettered signs advertising different brews: Toad Tea, Boo Brew, Lizard Latte, and Monster Mocha! Note the polka dot and star accents on the witch's hat and the whimsical kitty with the white tail. Kim also added the name of this figurine to the large sack in the witch's hands: "Brew House". Each Brew House Witch Figurine is $115

Michelle Kibbe's "Koi Fish" design on our 11" Marble Satin Alley Cat is marvelous. The satin finish of the gray marble glass combined with Michelle's hand painted blue and white swirls of water create the perfect background for these beautiful ornamental fish.

 

Did you know. . .
The average lifespan of a Koi Fish is 40 years. The oldest-known Koi was believe to have lived nearly 230 years. The age of a Koi fish is determined by testing the fish's scales. These scales produce growth rings, similar to those of a tree.

 

Among the most collectible items in Fenton history, the Alley Cat 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 Koi Fish Alley Cat Figurine is $180.

Our 2.75" Opal Satin Mouse figurine shown above features all the delightful "Good Luck" symbols of St. Patrick's Day! Michelle Kibbe's design includes a large four leaf clover and a horseshoe inside the ears. She added another cluster of clovers on top of the mouse's head. Michelle adorned this figurine in a bright green and yellow suit with green bowtie and brown shoes with golden buckles! Note those large blue eyes! Did you know. . . Lore holds that St. Patrick used the shamrock's three leaves to represent the Holy Trinity the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost. They are also known to represent faith, hope and love. The four leaf clover variety is a symbol of good luck. Each Good Luck Mouse Figurine is $80.

Kim Barley created a colorful scene featuring sunflowers and chickadees on our 6.5" Ruby Satin Tree. Large, colorful sunflowers adorn all sides of this figurine. Kim added three chickadees, each one perched on a branch near light red berries. Leaves in a lustrous green color provide vibrant accents for this figurine. The first Fenton Tree (5535) was offered in the 1992 Christmas catalog supplement. The 6.5" tree was created by designer Cathy See and was initially offered in Ruby, Green with iced branches and iridized crystal. Two smaller trees were added a year later. Each Chickadees & Sunflowers Tree Figurine is $80.

 

Fenton artist Michelle Kibbe has hand painted this Opal Satin Owl figurine (5.75" tall) decorated to absolute perfection with a pair of Cardinals in the foreground and a splendid scene of a country homestead in Winter.

 

You'll love the hand painted details. . . from the vivid red male Cardinals, to the snow covered pine trees. Note those mesmerizing eyes and lifelike talons of the owl! The airbrushed light blue background is just right for the contrasting hand painted design elements. Each Country Cardinals Owl Figurine is $95.
