Among the most collectible items in Fenton history, the
whimsical Alley Cat figurine has also been one of Fenton's
most popular items since it was first made in 1970. The mould
for this piece 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. We continue
the tradition by offering this figurine in the new Eggplant
color, featuring a design by Michelle Kibbe. A large, gnarly
tree dominates the front of the figurine, with its branches
extending up into the Alley Cat's face. Michelle created wide
open eyes above the Alley Cat's characteristic grin. A full
All Hallow's Eve moon rises behind one of the branches. Two purple, green and white owls
with watchful blue eyes perch on a branch. Bright orange
pumpkins lay upon the ground which encircles the base of the
figurine. Dark trees in hues of purple and blue provide the
background. Each Whooo's There? Alley Cat Figurine is $190.
Collectors have enjoyed the charm of Fenton
fairy lights for more than half a century. The flickering
flame from a small candle or tea light inside a Fenton
Fairy Light always seems to warm an entire room.
Michelle Kibbe's cheerful hand painted
design on our 5" Opal Fairy Light encircles the shade and includes several
golden-yellow sunflowers, white daisies and two
The shade is Opal Satin, while the
base is glossy Opal. See the photos below that illustrate two views
of this Fairy Light when the tea light is in place.
Each Sunflowers & Chickadees Fairy
Light, tea light included, is $95.
We're pleased to bring back a seasonal favorite to our
Limited Edition product line. . . the Pumpkinhead
Figurine. The mould for this figurine was designed by
sculptor Suzi Whitaker. "Pumpkinhead" joined Fenton's cast
of colorful Halloween characters in 2007. Kim Barley adds her whimsical touch
to this 6" Opal Satin figurine with a fun "Trick or
Treat" Halloween design. The orange "pumpkin head" has large eyes
(plus eyebrows and eyelashes!), a green top and a wide grin with a single tooth.
This character has its "trick or treat" bag at the ready
to receive lots of Halloween goodies! Kim added a colorful outfit in purple, black and green
with a golden star necklace. The hand painted details are
marvelous. . . from the grinning pumpkins on the ground,
flying bats, moon and stars. . . to the black cat with its
mouse companion. Did you see that pumpkin with purple bat
wings and vampire teeth? Each Trick or Treat Pumpkinhead Figurine

Robin Spindler created a heartwarming scene of
a mother Tiger Cat with her kittens on this 11.5" Opal Satin
Vase. The hand painted details are so true-to-life that
you'll want to reach out and pet those kittens! Note the pink
noses and highlights on the ears! The background of this vase
has trees with lush green and red foliage that complement the
blended tawny brown and black coloring of the Tiger Cat
family. One side of the vase has a mother
Tiger Cat looking at her kitten, who has climbed up on a
branch and poses nose-to-nose with its mama. Another kitten
has a tight grip on a log. Each
Tiger Cats Vase is $220.
We are pleased to offer a new design for our latest shape, the "butter tub" made by Mosser Glass.
This version is handcrafted in Jade glass, satin finished on
the outside with a glossy interior. Kim Barley thought the subtle
green tones provided the perfect glass canvas for her popular
"Let It Snow!" design. For the lid, she hand painted the
lettering and added a large white snowflake and the face of a
happy, smiling snowman. A gold star tops his green cap with
gold and red stripes. Kim added holly and berry accents on
either side of the snowman. The box has been airbrushed in
shades of blue and Kim lets the green glass show on the bottom
section. Snow covered pine trees encircle the base. 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! Each Let It Snow Covered Box
Robin Spindler continues to channel another era
in her latest "tie dye" look for our 3.25" long Opal Satin
Toad (or Frog, if you prefer) Figurine. Robin painted the figurine and then
airbrushed it overall, resulting in an amazing blend of
You'll see shades of blue, red, yellow, orange, and green in
We named this Limited Edition "Tie-Dye
and we're sure this figurine will appeal to the young as well
as the young-at-heart! Note the Toad's friendly grin.
If you recently ordered Robin's "Tie-Dye Dino" figurine, then
you'll also want to add this companion piece for your
Figurine is $80.
Robin Spindler calls her design "Full
House"... can you "see" why? Different sizes and
colors of eyes peer out from within the heavy
green branches of this 6.5" Opal Satin Tree Figurine. Robin
added a gold bow accent near the top branch. The first Fenton Tree (5535) was offered in the 1992 Christmas
catalog supplement. The 6.5" tree was created by
designer Cathy See and was first offered in ruby, green
with iced branches or iridized crystal, each accented
with a tiny gold bird on one of the branches. Two
smaller trees were added a year later. Each Full House Tree
Figurine is $70.

The amphora shape dates
back to Classical times, and Fenton artist
Kim Barley has graced this Opal Satin
Fenton Art Glass amphora vase with a
one-of-a-kind hand painted decoration that
will become a "classic" in its own time!
Kim's striking decoration features an
airbrushed background in subtle blue tones
and a hand painted floral motif of
delicate blue flowers and brilliant
Daisies as well as green leaves and
foliage. Don't miss seeing those yellow
and black bees as they search for nectar
amidst the flowers! The Opal Satin glass
amphora is 12.5" tall, and it stands
14.75" tall overall when in the burnished
With Fall fast approaching,
Fenton artist Michelle Kibbe was thinking
even further ahead as she designed and
hand painted this gorgeous one-of-a-kind
Christmas ornament with a hand painted
spiral of red/white candy to divide the
ornament. The colorful hand painted Santa
holds a trumpet that creates a shower of
stars, and a detailed holly sprig and
berries with a red bow are also featured
on the top half of the ornament. The
bottom half of the ornament contains
several hand painted green holly sprigs
with red berries as well as the artist's
signature. This ornament was fashioned by
West Virginia glassmaker Ron Hinkle while
a visiting artist at Fenton Art Glass, and
the opalescent glass was a staple of
Fenton production. The ornament itself is
about 4" tall, and when mounted on the
brass plated stand, this piece stands 7"
