Michelle Kibbe's design on our 7" Opal Satin Bridesmaid Doll figurine features lovely purple and white flowers and a ruby-throated hummingbird. Michelle's design was recently offered on our Egg on Stand figurine. The colors are rich and the hand painted details are beautiful and meticulously executed. Michelle added shades of purple to the dress ruffles and sash. Petite white polka dots and a spray of blue flowers accent the bodice.

 

The Bridesmaid Doll was introduced to the Fenton product line in the early 1990s and has continued as a favorite for doll figurine collectors.
Each Hummingbird & Purple Roses Bridesmaid Doll Figurine is $90.

Our 11" Opal Vase features a hand painted design by Michelle Kibbe that drew exclamations of "ooooh, how cute!" from our staff. Michelle created a wonderful scene of pink flowers, greenery and low hanging branches as the background setting. A curious striped brown and white kitten observes two small chicks. One chick appears to be looking back at the kitten, somewhat warily. Michelle's design encircles the vase and she added delicate banding near the top. A beautiful piece for your "Welcome Spring" tabletop display! Each Kitten & Chicks Vase is $185.


The Groundhog didn't see his shadow in our part of the country so Kim Barley is thinking "Early Spring!" with her design on our 2.75" Eggplant Mouse figurine. You'll delight in the whimsical details. . . from hand lettered "Thyme to" and "Bloom" on the
ears with butterfly and flower accents to the adorable green polka dotted "gardening" shoes! Kim added big green eyes, a bright pink nose, white whiskers, and a big smile on the face.

 

This mouse sports a purple t-shirt with a buzzing bee design
on the front. A flower pot with pink flowers rests at the mouse's feet and another flowerpot is on the side of this figurine. Additional photos show more delightful details that are sure to please figurine collectors! Note the large white daisy on top
of the head!
Each Thyme to Bloom Mouse Figurine is $80.

Below: The impressive 11.75" size of this Opal Satin Vase provides an excellent glass canvas for Robin Spindler's rendition of Parula Warblers. Robin painted a pair of these beautiful birds on one side of this vase, with another male Parula Warbler perched on a branch on the other side of the vase. A dense forest with beautifully blended colors in the branches, leaves and berries provides the background for her scene. Did you know. . . Considered an eastern warbler, Northern Parulas may occasionally breed along California's coastline as well as in New Mexico and in Arizona. Before they were named the Northern Parula, this species was also known as the "blue yellow-backed warbler" and "finch creeper". Each Northern Parula Warbler Vase is $220.

Michelle Kibbe transformed this Ruby Ghost figurine into a grinning fanged Vampire! She added red-stained fangs to the Ghost's toothy smile.

A wee Vampire with big blue eyes poses in front of a tombstone engraved with
a bat. A full moon rises behind the tombstone and white scraggly tree. A colony of bats with eerie, glowing green eyes are painted on the front and the back of this 5.5" figurine.

Each Vampires Ghost Figurine is $115.

The lustrous dark blue color of this 5.5" round Cobalt Paperweight is perfectly suited for Kim Barley's scene of a lattice fence adorned with brilliant blue Morning Glory flowers. A Monarch Butterfly hovers nearby. The hand painted details are lovely to behold, as if you could reach out and pluck one of the blooms! Each Morning Glory Butterfly Iceberg Paperweight is $100.


Kim Barley created snow-covered branches with pine cones and red-orange berries to the branches of this 6.5" Opal Satin Tree figurine.

Kim added a bright yellow "stylized" warbler on one branch as the focal point of her design.

 

The first Fenton Tree (5535) was offered in the 1992 Christmas catalog supplement. The 6.5" tree was created by designer Cathy See and initially 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. Each Stylized Warbler Tree Figurine is $80.

 

Pre-orders for the Northern Parula Warbler Vase, Vampires Ghost Figurine, Morning Glory Butterfly Iceberg Paperweight, and Stylized Warbler Tree Figurine will be accepted until midnight on Wednesday, February 19, 2020.

Fenton Art Glass Authorized eBay Auctions. . .

Here's your opportunity to own a lovely "one-of-a-kind" Fenton Art Glass creation through our weekly Fenton Art Glass eBay auctions. These Fenton Art Glass eBay auctions will end at 2 p.m. (ET) on Wednesday, February 19, 2020. Please click on the ebay logo to view all featured items.

 

Fenton artist Kim Barley is beginning to "think Spring," and this gorgeous 9.5" tall one-of-a-kind hand painted vase really says "Spring!" to all of us here in West Virginia. The Ruby-throated Hummingbird hovers amongst lush flowers in search of nectar. Every meticulous brushstroke is a thing of beauty, from the colorful, realistic flowers and the detailed green foliage to the remarkably lifelike hummingbird itself. This vase is cased glass, with a green interior and a milk glass exterior that is satin-finished.

This one of-a-kind crystal paperweight (made by Mosser Glass) is sure to amaze all who see it, as Fenton artist Michelle Kibbe has designed and hand painted a marvelous, incredibly lifelike scene. She created this scene with a "reverse painting" technique. She painted a background of trees and water with the tiger's reflection on the back side of the paperweight, then added layers of color on top of that scene. She then masked off an area on the front of the paperweight to create a satin finish for the hand painted scene of the majestic Tiger reclining on the large branch. We think you'll agree the result is amazing! The beautiful, but fierce Tiger crouches motionless on a strong branch above a pool of water. The Tiger's reflection shimmers in the water below. The Tiger's eyes are fixed upon something in the distance. This one-of-a-kind crystal paperweight stands 7" tall and is 5.5" wide at its base.

Are you looking for something really, really "cute?" This one-of-a-kind Fenton Art Glass hand painted Owl figurine (3" tall) is satin-finished black glass. Artist Michelle Kibbe's creative talents really show in her colorful hand painted design featuring a red heart with stylized flower and delicate blue and green accents. Note the interesting added details: flowers on the top of the head and those wonderful eyelashes!
These official Fenton Art Glass eBay auctions will end at 2 p.m. ET on Wednesday, February 19, 2020.
