Aubergine ... A Vision to Behold!

New for 2006, deep rich Aubergine strikes an elegant note. This warm color was inspired by fashion and then quickly embraced by home decorators. Like its complementary Marigold, it features streamlined shapes.

Stacy Williams was inspired to create a design that appears simple but captures attention with complex shading. Layer upon layer of sheer color flows fluidly through breeze-touched leaves accented by a pink Kousa pod.

New Sample Room Items this Week

1978 Louise Piper Custard Satin Bell

Handpainted as a sample by the legendary Louise Piper, this 5-3/4" tall Fenton bell in Custard Satin glass is simply one of the BEST we've ever seen. It's a great example of her meticulous attention to details. A country mill is framed by a gorgeous sunset and graceful trees with hilltops in the background. The bell is signed "Louise Piper" on the outside, and the handwritten phrase "Christmas 1978" also appears. On the inside, Louise has written "Fenton" and "Hand Painted by Louise Piper 1978".

1968 Topaz Sample Creamer

Is your birthday May 14? If you were born in 1968, this sample Thumbprint 4-1/2" tall creamer in Topaz was made by Fenton on your birthday! The date "5-14-68" is engraved on the underside of the base. The Topaz color (often called Vaseline by today's collectors) is quite vivid, and this piece will glow like "gangbusters" under black light! We only wish we had a sugar bowl to go with it!

Wow!! Five (count 'em!) Fenton family signatures! Used for some Fenton special events in 2005, this 5 1/2" tall Plum Opalescent vase was inscribed with Nancy Fenton's signature. We had a few left after the events were over, and we noted that there is room for more signatures, so we got Christine, Lynn, Mike, and Randy to personally sign each vase with an engraving tool. Several of them added "06" or "2006" too. We have fewer than three dozen of these vases, so...when they're gone, they're GONE for good!
