Fenton Art Glass partnered with glass artisan Ron Hinkle to
develop marvelous blown ornaments. A native of Buckhannon, West
Virginia, Ron is fascinated by the movement and flow of molten
glass. His work has been featured on the West Virginia
Governor's Christmas Tree. Ron used his glassmaking skills to
create the classic Christmas tree ball shape, finished with a
delicate loop of applied glass. The images above (courtesy of
Kitty Vickers) show Ron at work creating a Burmese
ornament for Fenton Art Glass (this ornament is no longer
We are pleased to offer the remaining inventory

Items featured this week. . .
Made by Fenton Art Glass as a special order for
Weil Ceramics in the late 1940s and early 1950s, this Blue
Overlay glass vase stands 8.75" tall. This vase is cased
glass, having an inner layer of opaque white glass that is
very thin and an exterior layer of delicate powder blue glass.
In catalogs issued by the Weil firm, this glass vase was
designated #4516. Note the distinctive double crimp style, a
characteristic of Fenton Art Glass for many years. Production
of this vase is well documented in Fenton records, as Weil
Ceramics maintained a good relationship with Fenton Art Glass
for several years.
This wonderful one-of-a-kind Christmas ornament
(3.25" d.) by Fenton artist Michelle Kibbe is a treat to see!
The iridescent crystal glass is the perfect complement to
Michelle's hand painted scene that features Santa in his
sleigh being pulled by a reindeer. Santa's sleigh is filled
with presents and snowflakes glitter against the night sky.
Glitter accents provide extra sparkle! This ornament comes
complete with a blue ribbon for hanging and is dated "2017" on
the front and identified and signed on the back: "M. Kibbe
Made by Fenton about 1997, this fabulous Cranberry Opalescent
Coin Dot pitcher stands 6.5" 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 zinc metal
printing plate is mounted on a wood block that measures about
7" long and 3.5" wide. We think this printing plate was used
for an advertisement in a national magazine in the late 1940s
or early 1950s. A Coin Dot pitcher and tumbler are depicted.
The text reads as follows: "Everlastingly lovely ... the
beverage set in Coin Dot ... handmade in America ... by
Fenton". We show both views in the photos. What a great piece
of history to display with a Coin Dot item! You’ll receive
both the Cranberry Opalescent Coin Dot pitcher and the zinc
metal printing plate. This auction ends at noon (ET) on Wednesday, October
