Kim Barley captures the spirit of the
Hawaiian islands with her hand painted "Aloha" design on
this 8" Lighthouse Fairy Light. The lush raspberry colors
of the flowers and the colorful hues of the palm trees and
foliage blend perfectly with the sunset background colors.
Seabirds are flying in the distant sky.
Already pleasing to the eye, check out the
effect when you add a tea light inside the base (inset
photo)! This 8" Lighthouse was handcrafted in Opal Satin
glass (5" base) and crystal (3" top) using Fenton Art
Glass moulds that were not used for production before
glassmaking halted at Fenton in 2011. Each Aloha Lighthouse Fairy
Light is $130 with tea lights included and is limited to
Below: Michelle Kibbe chose a colorful
bird as her subject for this 7" wide x 5"
tall Mystic Ice Iceberg Paperweight. Her depicts a pair of "Blue Tit" birds perched on a branch. The blue
tinted color of the paperweight provides an excellent canvas
for Michelle's rendition of the Blue Tit. Found in Europe, the
Middle East, northern Africa, and western Asia, this
petite bird has a lovely blend of feathers in blue, yellow and white that makes it very attractive. The Blue Tit is an
easily recognized garden visitor for bird watchers. Michelle
added vibrant blue, purple and white flowers as a frame above
the pair of birds. Each Blue Tit Iceberg Paperweight
This 5" Opal Satin Stylized Cat features a
watchful "Hoot Owl" by Michelle Kibbe.
She airburshed the entire figurine in a
soft blue color with darker blue tips accenting the ears.
Michelle then added tall trees in different shades of
purple in the background. A full moon dominates the sky
behind the trees.
Note the large golden eyes of this small
Sculptor Jon Saffell designed the (5065)
Cat figurine, known as the Stylized Cat, in 1999, much to
the delight of our cat fanciers! A great gift for the cat

Robin Spindler chose our Georgia Blue Alley
Cat Figurine (approx. 11") as her color choice for this
fabulous underwater scene. The different shades of light
blue in this figurine create the feel of moving water.
Robin created a scene with goldfish and even a colorful
eel! The underwater foliage and the bubbles enhance the
background. Note the large castle on the front of this
figurine. Robin added a golden tint to the ears and nose.
Among the most collectible items in Fenton
history, the Alley Cat has been one of Fenton's most
popular items since it debuted in 1970. Fenton collectors
just can't seem to get enough of the Alley Cat's
characteristic grin! The Alley Cat 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.
Each Goldfish Castle Alley Cat Figurine is $190.
Robin Spindler chose to depict a favorite
scene for this 5.5" diameter Cobalt Paperweight.
Scenes of the Canaan
Valley in West Virginia remain one of our most popular designs.
Robin features a pair of Cardinals perched on a tree branch in a
snow-covered landscape. Robin added a patriotic touch with
13 white stars that
encircle the scene. The hand painted details of the snowy
scene are beautiful
to behold. Robin will sign each paperweight "Fenton 2019
Betsy Ross American Icon" and also add the Limited
Edition number. Each Betsy
Ross American Icon Paperweight is $110.
Several Fentons fell hard for sculptor
Suzi Whitaker's new horse figurine mould in 2006. The
final result was named the "Fenton Foal" and has since
become a collector favorite. We are pleased to offer
this 3.75" long Fenton Foal figurine in Opal Satin.
Kim Barley created a hand painted design that
resembles a "paint" horse with a black coat covered
with large white markings. This figurine also has
"socks", which is when the white markings extend above
the top of the hoof, but stops below the fetlock. The
Foal's mane has wonderful texture, and the eyes are
Did you know. . . The terms "paint" and "pinto"
are sometimes both used to describe "paint" horses.
But "paint" horses are the breed and "pinto" is
actually the coloring of the horse. Pintos have a
mixture of white and colored areas on their bodies. Each
Paint Fenton Foal Figurine is $80 and is limited to
Michelle Kibbe hand painted our 3.5"
Opal Satin Songbird Figurine as a stylized "Tree Swallow". The
details are true-to-life with delicate feathers. The
eyes are remarkable, as if the bird is looking right
at you! Perfect gift for a bird watcher or a figurine
collector! Did you know. . . Only male tree
swallows sing. Tree swallows mostly eat flying
insects. They feed in flight, and can also catch
insects on the surface of water or on other surfaces.
Each Tree Swallow Songbird Figurine is $75 and
is limited to 14.

Fenton artist Michelle Kibbe loves the West
Virginia outdoors, and this splendid one-of-a-kind hand
painted vase (9" tall) in Opal Satin glass really showcases
