Because of the handmade process, bead size may vary from 1/2'' to 5/8'' in diameter.
Each bead has a sterling silver core embossed Fenton USA.

NEW Limited Edition Designs from Fenton Gift Shop. . .

Fenton Gift Shop is pleased to offer new Limited Edition selections for pre-orders. A special offering for this week is the beautiful cameo-carved 10.75" Persimmon Vase shown at left (detail photo shown below). Persimmon glass is rich Ruby glass with a Milk Glass interior. This vase was designed and cameo-carved by Fenton artist Cathy Mackey. Each vase is signed by Cathy and Tom Fenton, son of Frank M. Fenton and former plant manager at the Fenton factory. Just 15 of these vases are available for $350 each.


Cameo carving is a painstaking process. After the glass has been annealed, a special mask is taped to the surface of the glass. Using an advanced "vignetting" technique, each piece is carefully sand carved, by hand, using aluminum oxide crystals under pressure to take away some of the surface. Great individual skill and experience are needed to control this operation, as many distinct stages of successive cameo carving are required to create the remarkable depth and the intricate details. As you can see from the photos, the results are stunning!

Other Limited Editions included in this offering are a 4.25" Fox, a 5.5" Owl, and a 3.5" Bear, each figurine handcrafted in Opal Satin glass. A 6.75" Jadeite glass Bridesmaid Doll figurine joins this special group. All of these selections were hand-crafted exclusively for the Fenton Gift Shop by Mosser Glass, using a Fenton mould.

Michelle Kibbe created an "owl within the owl"
design for this figurine! Wooden "tree" details
on the front of the figurine frame the small owl
peeking out of a window. The owl figurine is
airbrushed in gray-blue tones with natural browns
for the base and talons.
Each Window Peeker Owl Figurine is $90.

Kim Barley created a vibrant "Foxy Flora" design for this Opal Satin figurine! She airbrushed the entire figurine in natural colors and added large, colorful blue flowers. Note those expressive eyes! Each Foxy Flora Fox Figurine is $85.


Pre-orders for the Persimmon Trees Cameo Carved Vase, Foxy Flora and Window Peeker Owl Figurines will be accepted until midnight (ET) on Monday, June 12, 2017.
To pre-order, please call the Fenton Gift Shop: 1-800-319-7793, ext. 342 or email:
and include the items you want to purchase in the subject line.

Kim Barley named her design for this Jadeite Doll figurine "Witchy Poo"! Her meticulous handpainted whimsical details are fantastic. . from the large expressive eyes and the web bouquet with a dangling spider to the witch's "familiar" (black cat) in cloth hat and the bubbling pot of "Boo Brew"! Sure to become a decorating favorite for your All Hallow's Eve!
Each Witchy Poo Doll Figurine is $115.
Inspired by the giant tree that fell in the Redwood Forest, Robin Spindler carries that theme to this handpainted design of a majestic buck with a doe jumping over a large fallen tree. Robin will sign each vase "Fallen Giant". This vase is sure to make a statement wherever it is displayed! Each Fallen Giant Vase is $250.

Michelle Kibbe's wonderful hand painted design for this "Polar Bear Cub" has him warmly dressed. It looks as if he has been gathering sprigs of holly. Note his winter finery with the matching cap, scarf and mittens in hues of baby blue.


A woven basket holds the holly sprigs. The expression on the face is adorable with the  long-lashes on the eyes, the rosy cheeks and the heart-shaped nose! This is a must have for figurine collectors! Each Polar Bear Cub Figurine is $75.

Pre-orders for the Witchy Poo Bridesmaid Doll Figurine, Fallen Giant Vase and the Polar Bear Cub Figurine will be accepted until midnight (ET) on Wednesday, June 14, 2017.

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, June 14. Items featured this week.


With satin finished cobalt blue glass for her canvas, Fenton artist Michelle Kibbe designed and hand painted this splendid one-of-a-kind vase (9.5" tall). Her design features a mother tabby cat and her kitten, and all the hand painted details are simply wonderful, from the expressions on the cats' faces to the potted plant in the background! The plant appears to have caught the attention of the kitten! Note the kitten is holding a piece of the plant in its mouth! Michelle added an oval rug and cat toys to complete the scene. This vase was handcrafted at Blenko Glass, using the Fenton mould, exclusively for Fenton Art Glass.

With satin finished Rosalene glass for her canvas, Fenton artist Michelle Kibbe designed and hand painted this splendid one-of-a-kind basket (9.5" tall). Note the Milk Glass edge and the distinctive crimp style and applied handle. . . a real tribute to our skilled glassworkers. Michelle's hand painting talents and skills are displayed to perfection on this piece, as the intricate floral motif is remarkably detailed and vivid in color.

Here’s a great opportunity to acquire a unique piece of Fenton history. When our 12-pot furnace was shut down for repairs in July 1980, small lumps of glass in various colors remained in the bottoms of some pots. Some of this glass was ground and polished by Fenton employee Jim Stage, who was then foreman of the Finishing Department (Jim is now associated with the Williamstown Antique Mall). This lightweight transparent green glass piece measures 2.125” by 2.25”. It will make a nice paperweight or accent piece to display with a Fenton collection. This transparent green piece has been personally signed by company President George Fenton.

Award-winning Fenton designer Robin Spindler created and hand painted this splendid one-of-a-kind Bridesmaid Doll figurine (7" tall) in Opal Satin glass. The airbrushed blue tones are wonderful, and the details on the neckline and bow of the dress are truly remarkable. The hand painted floral motif complements the bouquet, which also has shimmering gemstone accents. This one-of-a-kind Bridesmaid Doll figurine was handcrafted at Mosser Glass, using the Fenton mould.
