With classic Fenton Burmese glass for her
canvas, Fenton artist Michelle Kibbe designed and hand painted
this splendid one-of-a-kind vase (8.5" tall). The graceful
shape of the vase provided ample room for "1, 2, 3 ... count
them … 5 adorable sleepy kitties! Each kitten is colorful and
perfectly detailed, as Michelle's extraordinary hand painting
and skills are shown to perfection. Note the "paw prints" that
encircle the vase at top and bottom. Burmese glass contains
pure gold, and careful reheating techniques by Fenton
glassworkers create the distinctive pink blush that collectors
Here's a great opportunity to acquire a rainbow of Fenton Art
Glass colors. These 17 glass objects (2.5" diameter) are
"color test disks." When molten glass is being readied for a
day's work or a new color is being made, Fenton chemists would
gather just the right amount of glass and employ this metal
former (8.5" long) or a similar tool to create a color
test disk. The procedure was often carried out in the early
morning hours so that adjustments could be made as needed. The
light green disk in this assortment is dated 1962, and most of
the rest of the disks have paper stickers or writing in black
marker (some of these are quite legible but others are not).
You'll see various shades of blue as well as green, orange, pink, ruby, etc. etc. Insofar as we can tell, these glass
disks come from the 1960s-1990s time frame. One disk is dated
3-15-07. These color glass disks were stored in our glass
technology research area, and we're please to make this
Made by Fenton about 1997, this fabulous Cranberry Opalescent
Coin Dot pitcher stands 9.75" tall (measured to the very top
of the handle). Note the especially rich cranberry color on
the interior of the pitcher and the extraordinarily graceful
shape of the ribbed opalescent handle. The "saddle crimp"
style is a real tribute to the skills of Fenton glassworkers.
The Coin Dot pattern was first developed by Fenton Art Glass
in the 1940s, and Cranberry Opalescent examples of Coin Dot
soon became favorites among collectors nationwide. This copper
printing plate was used in the printing of a Fenton catalog
more than half a century ago! The copper plate measures 5.25"
x 6.5" and the wood block is 7.5" x 7.75". The Coin Dot pieces
depicted were in the Fenton line about 1947 to 1952. The
copper plate has been cleaned, but it does have some light
scratches on its surface.
