An adorable gray and white cat peeks out
from its hiding place amidst colorful white and yellow
flowers on this 5.5" Hunter Green Paperweight. The rich
dark green color of the glass provides an excellent background for
Michelle Kibbe's hand painted scene. The details on the
cat are true-to-life. Imagine what this kitty could be
looking at with such curiosity... should it extend that
white paw further into the open or perhaps just continue
watching while it stays hidden in the flower patch? Each
Flower Patch Cat Paperweight is $110.
The perfect companion piece for the Flower
Patch Cat Paperweight is this 3.75" Opal Satin Sitting Cat
Figurine. Michelle Kibbe created a coordinating design for

The impressive 11" size and elegant shape of
this Opal Satin vase provides Robin Spindler with the perfect
glass canvas to use for her marvelous depiction of a Mountain
Lioness and her two cubs. The Lioness looks on serenely while
her two playful cubs peer out from the shelter of her body.
Robin said the open mouthed cub is hissing. The details on the
eyes are mesmerizing. Robin added lush pink flowers and dense
foliage in the background. Did you know. . . The
mountain lion is known by many names, including cougar,
catamount, panther, and puma. Females are called Queens and
have an average of two to four cubs per litter. Cubs are born
with spots, which usually disappear by the time they are nine
months old. Each Mountain Lion Family Vase is $210.
You'll want to add this latest
Halloween-themed kitty to your collection! Kim Barley
continues to create fun and whimsical Halloween designs
for our figurines! This 5" Ruby Stylized Cat has a variety
of favorite "Halloween Haunts" including: scraggly
whiskers and large green eyes, a grinning pumpkin, a jar
filled with eyeballs (perhaps from newts?), a green witch
in a frilly purple dress, a flying purple bat and dangling
purple spider, an abandoned house with creepy eyes peering
out from a window along with a ghost peeking out from the
front door, and a black cat. Kim also added black polka
dots on the ears and black stripes on the cat's tail! Each
Halloween Haunts Stylized Cat Figurine is $95.
We are pleased to offer a new design for our latest shape, the "butter tub" made by Mosser Glass.
This version is handcrafted in Marble glass, which is a blend
of brown and gray tones that creates the marbled look. Robin Spindler liked the vintage look of this set and chose to paint
a design featuring blackberries on the vine. The background is
in subtle tones of green and pink. For the lid, she added two
buzzing bumblebees and topped it with a pink gemstone accent.
The 4.5" x 4.5" size is perfect to use as a treasure box to
store precious keepsakes or as a candy box. . . or think
"outside the box" and come up with your own use for this
beautiful Limited Edition set! This Marble Covered Box is
satin finished on the outside with a glossy interior. Each
Blackberries & Bees Covered Box is $90.
Michelle Kibbe's design on this 5.5"
Eggplant Satin Owl Figurine features delicate
scrollwork complemented by vintage roses. Two large
roses in shades of purple to white dominate the front
of this figurine. Michelle added vivid greenery and
smaller purple, blue and yellow flowers to complete
the look. Those purple and black eyes really capture
your attention! Each Vintage Roses Owl
Figurine is $95.

featured this week. . .
With Opal Satin glass for her
canvas, Fenton artist Michelle Kibbe created
and hand painted this remarkable one-of-a-kind
vase (9" tall). Careful airbrushing brought
about the subtle green tones for the
background, and hand painted foliage frames
the vivid hand painted portrait of an
inquisitive fabulous true-to-life Chimpanzee.
All the colors and hand painted details are
Here's a once in a lifetime opportunity to
acquire eight original black-and-white photos
that document one of the most significant
events in the history of the Fenton Art Glass
Company, namely, "the day the stack fell." On
June 29, 1940, the chimney above the multi-pot
glass melting furnace collapsed. This 80-foot
chimney contained about 75,000 bricks and
weighed an estimated 280 tons, so there was a
great deal of damage. Most of the Fenton Art
Glass factory roof came down with the chimney,
and glassmaking operations came to a complete
standstill for about two months so that
reconstruction could take place. There are
four 3.5" x 5.5" black and white photos; one
photo shows the immediate aftermath of the
collapse, and the other three depict some of
the debris clearing and reconstruction
efforts. There are four 3" x 3.5" photos,
three of which were taken from above the area
and show an early stage in the rebuilding of
the main furnace. All of these photos are in
excellent condition. Fenton historian James
Measell has worked to identify some of the
people shown in the photos, and their names
will be included with this purchase. There is
only one set of these 8 photos available, so
this is really a "once in a lifetime"
Award-winning Fenton designer Robin Spindler
created this remarkable one-of-a-kind
handprinted crystal iceberg paperweight (7"
long, 5" tall, and 1.25" thick). The foliage
on the front frames the outline of the state
of West Virginia that is one the reverse side,
and the visual effect is simply stunning! Note
the Fenton Art Glass "script F" logo, too.
These Fenton's eBay auctions will end on
Wednesday, July 31st.
