The Egg is embossed with Dave Fetty's personal stamp and individually signed by Dave himself. Only 26 available!
Dave Fetty Ruby Vase with Gray Pulled Feathers

Fenton Natural Animals
By popular demand, we've revived a Fenton concept from the past and taken it one step further. Each Natural Animal figurine is meticulously handpainted by a Fenton artist and has the added attraction of a Swarovski gemstone. So, they're all dressed up and ready to go!
Meadow Berry on Madras Pink Robin Spindler's intricate handpainted design uses layers of sheer color and a special sponge treatment to create just the right burnished effect.
Sail Away with Indigo Blue!
Kim Barley's fondness for all thins aquatic is well-expressed in her fanciful depiction of a school of fish in the depths of the sea. Blue and gold tones blend beautifully, and "bubbles" lend a whimsical touch.
Indigo Blue is a timely color with global appeal. This deep, natural blue can be seen worldwide in beautifully handmade fabrics. Translated into lustrous Fenton glass, Indigo Blue imparts a lively personality.

In the Fenton Sample Room this Week
1957 SAMPLE Golden Yellow / French Opalescent Spiral Vase
Bid Now (eBay)
This splendid sample vase (5" tall) dates from the 1950s, and the original production label on the underside is dated "8-13-57". The colors and treatment are most intriguing: a rich opaque golden yellow covered with French Opalescent and developed with a great spiral optic effect.
1970 Black Crest Basket
Bid Now (eBay)
This Black crest basket (6-1/2" tall) was sold through the Fenton Gift Shop about 1970, and such pieces are difficult to find today. The handler's mark of Fred Bruce is quite clear on this wonderful basket!
Amethyst Opalescent Off-Hand Coin Spot Vase by Dave Fetty
Bid Now (eBay)
This graceful vase (10-1/4" tall) in rich Amethyst Opalescent glass is what we sometimes call "Coin Spot" as the "spots" are opalescent and the area surrounding them is transparent. This is a sample piece, made by Dave Fetty in 2005 or 2006, and it is embossed with Dave's personal stamp.
1960s Colonial Amber Comport
Bid Now (eBay)
This comport (7-1/2" tall) in our Rose pattern is
satin-finished (oh, so super smooth!) Colonial Amber glass, and it was made
in the 1960s, although it was not in the Fenton line as satin-finished. The
design idea for this item came from a U. S. Glass Co. piece made in the
Shop for Fenton on eBay!
