from Fenton Gift Shop! Now available for pre-order, each

Michelle Kibbe's hand painted design on our
10.75" Opal Satin Vase hearkens back to another era. A
country scene set in late autumn encircles the vase.
Michelle added a trio of delicate bands in brown tones to
complement her design. The wagon driver maneuvers a farm
wagon along a rutted country road. The wheels have wooden
spokes and there's a raised seat on the wagon, which
allows for plenty of space for storage of goods. Michelle
added soft hues of blues and reds in the sky.
Did you know. . .
the front wheels on a wagon are smaller than the rear ones
because of engineering! The lower height of the front
wheel helps to level the wagon and increases the turning
radius. As the diameter of the wheel increases, the draft
size of the animal needed to pull the wagon decreases,
making it easier on the horses, mules, or oxen to pull the
wagons and carriages. Each Horse Drawn Wagon
Vase is $155.
The perfect companion piece to the vase shown
above is this 3.75" long Appaloosa Foal Figurine by Michelle Kibbe. 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 favorite. Michelle hand
painted this Opal Satin figurine in natural tones to resemble
an Appaloosa Foal, which is known for its beautiful spots.
This Appaloosa has a soft brown coat with darker brown head,
mane and tail. Perfect gift for figurine collectors as well as
horse enthusiasts. Each Brown
Appaloosa Fenton Foal Figurine is $80.
We are pleased to introduce this new design
for one of the latest shapes to be included in our product line ─
a Jadeite glass "butter tub" made by Mosser Glass.
Before refrigerators were used in households, butter was
stored in a round or rectangular covered dish.
Michelle Kibbe adds to the beauty of the
Jadeite glass with her hand painted design of lovely purple,
blue, ivory and white stylized flowers.
Delicate scrollwork and crosshatch details with golden bands
complete this set.
This 4.5" x 4.5" Jadeite piece is very versatile. Use it as a
treasure box to store your precious keepsakes or as a candy
box. . . or think "outside the box" and come up with your own
use for this beautiful Limited Edition! This set is satin
finished on the outside and has a glossy interior. Each
Beautiful Blooms Covered Box is $90.

Robin Spindler's recent design featuring the Fly
Agaric Mushroom was so popular she decided to try her design
on our 11" Opal Satin Alley Cat Figurine that was
finished using an
acid etch process. Note the interesting opaque and translucent
areas on this figurine. Robin chose to depict several "poisonous" mushrooms in vibrant colors.
Her hand painted design encircles the base of the figurine and
includes the following toxic and uniquely-named mushrooms: Fly Agaric, Green
Spored Lepiota, Jack-o'-lantern, Destroying Angel, and Emetic Russula. Robin used vibrant red, orange, green, golden-yellow
and other hues to create her design. She added a dragonfly
adorned with a sparkling blue gemstone accent just below the
neck area. Truly a unique design and definitely a conversation
starter when on display!
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.
Fenton collectors just can't seem to get enough of the Alley
Cat's characteristic grin! 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. Each Mushrooms Galore! Alley
Cat Figurine is $195.
You'll want to pre-order this
Limited Edition Santa, not only for seasonal decorating,
but to treasure as a family keepsake!
Robin Spindler depicts the Fenton Art Glass
Gift Shop with a unique hand painted design on our 8" Opal
A rendition of the Fenton Gift Shop appears on
the back of Santa's robe, which Robin has airbrushed in a soft
blue and added light brown for the fur trim. She added a star
with a sparkling golden gemstone.
On the front of this figurine, Santa has a firm grip on his bag
stuffed full of goodies. In the other hand, Santa holds his
"naughty or nice" list. Hand lettered on the list are the
names of Fenton siblings Christine, Don, Randall, and Shelley
(the children of Wilmer "Bill" Fenton).
The Santa figurines designed by sculptor Jon Saffell
in the 1990s quickly became very popular Fenton collectibles
as well as holiday gifts. Each
Fenton Family List Santa Figurine is $125.
Kim Barley welcomes the coming season
with her "Happy Fall y'all!" design on our 5.75" Ruby
Satin Ghost Figurine. Kim created an adorable scene
with a black cat dressed as a ghost, laughing
pumpkins, purple bat and stars. She added a large
sunflower and hand painted "OCTOBER" on
the back side of the figurine. Note the large full
moon on one hand.
Each Happy Fall Y'All
Ghost Figurine is $115.
Kim Barley created a cute design on
our 3.75" Opal Satin Sitting Cat Figurine of a
butterfly flitting amongst lovely flowers. She painted
the figurine in light gray tones for the body and
added white to the chest, paws and to the tip of the
tail. A large blue and white stylized flower adorns
the head. As always, Kim created an expressive face
with large eyes and a pink nose.
Each Butterfly Floral
Sitting Cat Figurine is $75.

Mushrooms Galore! Alley Cat,

Fenton artist Michelle Kibbe enjoys the Winter
season, and this one-of-a-kind hand painted cased
glass vase (9.75" tall) showcases many of her
favorite things: the outdoors, birch trees, pine
trees and Cardinal birds! The stately birch trees
are perfectly depicted, and the bright red male
Cardinal is a wonderful focal point in Michelle's
breathtaking design. The delicate airbrushed
background adds depth to the scene, as does the
pine tree in the foreground and the barren trees
in the far background. This remarkable hand
painted scenic design completely encircles the
vase. This cased glass vase has rich emerald green
glass on its interior, and the exterior is Milk Glass.
Get started on Halloween fun with this
great one-of-a-kind hand painted basket (7.5" tall) in
black glass from Fenton artist Kim Barley. You'll love
the interesting, eye-catching hand painted details: a
trio of smiling pumpkins, a black cat, a witch's
distinctive hat, stars, a bat, etc. (don't miss
the two pieces of candy corn inside ... you can add
more!!). The airbrushed blue background on the
exterior is the perfect contrast for all of Kim's
interesting design elements. Kim hand lettered the
word “HALLOWEEN” in gold paint above the pumpkin trio.
Note the square twisted handle, too! These
Fenton's eBay auctions will end at 2 p.m. ET on
Wednesday, September 18.
