the face. Each “Curious Raccoon” Vase is $190 and limited
to eight vases.

This whimsical Alley Cat figurine has been
one of Fenton's most popular items since it was first made
in 1970. The mould originated at the U.S. Glass Co. in
Tiffin, Ohio during the 1920s and was purchased by Fenton
Art Glass in the mid-1960s. Since that time, this Alley
Cat has been made in a rainbow of colors and decorative
treatments. Robin Spindler has transformed this 11” Opal
Satin Alley Cat into a “Kodkod”, one of the smallest cat
species. Robin has captured this unique feline’s
disctinctive markings, while keeping the Alley Cat's
Did you know. . . The Kodkod has a head and body
length of up to 20" and weighs from 3.3 to 6.6 lb. The
Kodkod’s buff or gray-brown coat is marked with round
black spots on its head and neck that may form broken
streaks. It has a short, bushy tail marked with a series
of narrow, black bands of fur. Each Kodkod Alley
Cat Figurine is $185 and is limited to nine.
Sculptor Suzi Whitaker designed the mould
for a new horse figurine that debuted in 2006. It was
named the"Fenton Foal" and has since become a collector
This 3.75” long Opal Satin figurine has been handpainted
in realistic tones by Robin Spindler to resemble an
Appaloosa horse, which is known for its beautiful spots.
This figurine is perfect for collectors as well as horse
Each Appaloosa Fenton Foal Figurine is $80.
Kim Barley continues her popular
“Inspirational Message” design on our 3.5” Opal Satin
Bear Figurine. Each figurine has been hand painted in
natural shades to depict a black bear cub. Kim applied
golden highlights around the face and paws. Note the
buzzing bumblebee on top of the head and the hand
lettered word “Hope” on a wooden log. This is the
third Bear Figurine in Kim’s “Inspirational Message”
series. Each Hope Bear Figurine is $75.

With Lotus Mist Burmese glass
for her canvas, Fenton artist Michelle Kibbe
designed and hand painted this marvelous
one-of-a-kind vase. The vase stands 13" tall,
and Michelle's depiction of Gambel's Quail is
simply wonderful. These distinctive birds are
native to the Sonoran desert and are abundant
near desert streams and waterholes. Coveys of
these quail gather at the water in morning and
evening, giving a variety of clucking and
crowing notes. The colors of male and female
are accurately hand painted, and all the
details are meticulously done. The surrounding
Cacti and the landscape add much depth to this
piece. Lotus Mist Burmese is a unique glass
color in the history of American art glass,
and mush credit goes to those responsible for
its creation at Fenton Art Glass nearly 20
years ago. This one-of-a-kind hand painted
Lotus Mist Burmese vase is signed, dated and
identified on the underside: "hand painted by
M. Kibbe 2019 OOAK".
Award-winning Fenton designer Robin Spindler
has captured all the majesty of the exotic Royal Flycatcher
bird with this depiction on a cobalt blue Iceberg Paperweight
(7" tall). The hand painted colors are true to life and the
details are amazing! The carefully airbrushed background adds
great depth to the meticulous hand painting. This one-of-kind
hand painted iceberg paperweight is identified, dated and
signed on the underside: "Fenton 2019 Royal Flycatcher hand
painted by J. K. Spindler".
These auctions will end on Wednesday, May 15, 2019.
