Memorial Day. . .

Three years after the Civil War ended, on May 5, 1868, the head of an organization of Union veterans (the Grand Army of the Republic  known as the GAR) established Decoration Day as a time for the nation to decorate the graves of the war dead with flowers. Major General John A. Logan declared that Decoration Day should be observed on May 30. It is believed that date was chosen because flowers would be in bloom all over the country. The
first large observance was held that year at Arlington National Cemetery, across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C.
- US Dept. of Veterans Affairs


"Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we
shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support
any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success
of liberty." – President John F. Kennedy

“I don't have to tell you how fragile this precious gift of freedom is. Every time we hear, watch, or read the news, we are reminded that liberty is a rare commodity in this world.”
– President Ronald Reagan

Fenton Art Glass eBay Auctions. . .

Here's an opportunity
to own a beautiful
"one-of-a-kind" art
glass creation or a
piece of Fenton history through our weekly eBay auctions. This auction ends at noon (ET) on Wednesday, May 31.
Items featured this week.


With satin finished Buttercup Overlay glass for her canvas, Fenton artist Michelle Kibbe created and hand painted this amazing one-of-a-kind vase (10" tall).
Her depictions of three favorite American birds (Bluebird, Black-Capped Chickadee and Cardinal) are simply remarkable. This "overlay" vase is made with cased glass and has an interior of pure milk glass with an outer layer of rich Buttercup glass.

Anyone who has heard the plaintive cry of the Whip-poor-will will not soon forget it, and this splendid one-of-a-kind hand painted vase (7" tall) by Fenton designer Michelle Kibbe will recall those vivid memories. With satin finished black glass for her canvas, Michelle created and hand painted this remarkably realistic depiction of the Whip-poor-will and the foliage where it likes to roost during the day so that it cannot be easily seen. Every element of this hand painted scene is perfectly executed. Note the added elegance of the distinctive tri-crimp on this vase, a testament to the skills of Fenton glassworkers.

Here’s a great opportunity to acquire a unique piece of Fenton history. This pair of “Presser’s Shears” was used by skilled glassworkers at Fenton Art Glass to cut a gob of molten glass from a gatherer’s punty to allow the hot glass to drop into the press mould. As one would expect, these are heavy duty shears, and our mould shop attached a length of threading to the handle so that a special “knob” could be added. The knob was used by the skilled presser to “rub out” the tail of the molten glass after cutting off so that a shear mark would not be present in the finished piece of glass. We have cleaned these up, but you should expect to see some grime and surface rust. These presser’s shears measure about 16.25” in length.

Here’s a wonderful iridized Dusty Rose miniature vase (1.75” tall), made at Fenton Art Glass in the early 1990s. Fenton president George Fenton has personally signed his name on the underside of this miniature vase. Note the crimped edge. This miniature vase was made with an historic Fenton mould that was designated simply as No. 37 when it was first used in the early 1940s.
