Right: Kim Barley
created a unique look for our 8" Opal Satin Chessie Cat
Covered Box. Recalling the history of the sleeping kitten,
Kim's design includes various "graffiti" art
that may be found at a railroad brickyard. She created a
painted brick wall as background for the wide awake gray
Graffiti covers the surface of the Chessie Cat Covered
Box, including where the paint of a brick wall has peeled
away to reveal the rusty red bricks. Additional photos
below show the various forms of "graffiti" on this
two-piece covered box set, including "Art is Smart",
"Love", "Peace", "Rock N Roll", and "Dream". She also
added the lettering for the "CSX" railroad. Kim added more
of the revealing brick design on the lid (see image
The popular "Chessie" cat character was used as a symbol
of the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway. They used this artwork
with their advertising slogan that when traveling on their
railway you would "sleep like a kitten". Fenton created
this item especially for the Chesapeake & Ohio railway
company. In addition to the artist's signature, the base
of this box is embossed with the words "Chessie by

Michelle Kibbe is anticipating the coming
holiday season with her lovely "Pine Cones & Ornaments" hand
painted design on our 5" Opal Satin Stylized Cat. A perfect
addition to your seasonal decorating!
The figurine has a light blue hue and Michelle
added pine sprigs with red berries on top of the head. Three
round ball ornaments are nestled on another group of pine.
The scarf has beautiful designs in squares,
including snowflakes and the pine cone and berries motif. Note
that heart-shaped nose and those blue eyes that appear to be
looking up at the holly atop the head!
Sculptor Jon Saffell designed the (5065) Cat
figurine, known as the Stylized Cat, in 1999, much to the
delight of our cat fanciers!
Each Pine Cones & Ornaments Stylized Cat
Michelle Kibbe's "Snowflakes & Snowmen"
design on our Limited Edition Santa figurine was so popular that she hand
painted our Opal Satin Snowcouple figurines as perfect
companions. The 4" Snowman sports a black hat with red and
white striped band, red scarf and green gloves. The 3.75"
Snowlady has a blue scarf with zigzag trim and green gloves like the other
snowman on the Santa. Both figurines have bright red
heart-shaped buttons and delightful expressions.
Additional views are shown below. The Snowlady also has a
blue and white check pattern purse. Snowflakes and
decorative designs adorn her cape and scarf. The Snowman
also has snowflakes. A winter landscape scene encircles the
base of each figurine. Each Sid & Sally Snowflake

The elegant shape and larger size of this
11" Opal Satin Vase provides an excellent glass canvas for
Robin Spindler's beautiful "Winter Friends" design. A
colorful red male cardinal and two chickadees perch
companionably on branches. A winter landscape with brown
fence and pine trees provide a background scene and it
encircles the vase. Each vase will also include the name
"Winter Friends" as well as Robin's signature and the date
and number of the Limited Edition.
Each Winter Friends Vase is $190.
Among the most collectible items in Fenton
history, the Alley Cat is also one of Fenton's most popular
items since it debuted in 1970.
Collectors just can't seem to get enough of the
Alley Cat's characteristic grin!
The mould for this figurine originated at the U.S. Glass Co.
in Tiffin, Ohio during the 1920s. Purchased by
Fenton Art Glass in the mid-1960s, this Alley Cat has since
been made in a many colors
and glass treatments.
Alley Cat was made in an Eggplant color at Mosser Glass, using
the Fenton mould.
Kim Barley created the perfect whimsical design
to go along with that grinning face... bees hover around the
flowers and blackberries on the figurine. She added two petite
flowers on the nose. The cat's eyes are looking upward,
perhaps carefully observing the movements of that buzzing bee!
You can see another bee just above the cat's white polka
dotted tail. Kim created a unique color effect, almost like a
mulberry color, by using the eggplant color and blue hues
Each Blackberries 'n Bees Alley Cat Figurine is $190.
Handcrafted by Mosser in crystal glass,
this 7" x 5.5" Iceberg Paperweight is perfectly suited for
Robin Spindler's amazing "Winter Wonderland" hand painted
The scene features two forest friends, a
fawn and a rabbit, observing the breathtaking beauty of
a "winter wonderland".
The afternoon sun is setting against a sky
painted in soft pink, blue and yellow hues. A stream,
flowing through the winter landscape, reflects the beauty
of nature. Snow covered banks create a frame around the
scene. Robin created the reflection of the sky in
the shimmering crystal clear water of the stream. Snow
begins to fall amongst the tall trees.
Robin used a "reverse painting" technique
where she painted part of the scene on the back portion of
the iceberg. She then painted a solid color background
over that section. The front area of the paperweight is
handpainted with the animals and snow covered ground and
creates an outline effect. Each Winter Wonderland
Iceberg Paperweight is $110.
Michelle Kibbe created an adorable
red-nosed reindeer design for this iridized Opal glass
3.25" diameter Snowflake Ornament. Each
ornament will be signed by the artist and dated 2019. We believe
this ornament will become a decorating favorite.
This ornament has a snowflake design embossed in the
glass on the reverse side. The hand painted scene has
a flying reindeer with a holly and berry wreath for
its collar. The antlers are stylized with a curly-que
design. Large snowflakes against a blue sky provide
the background for Michelle's delightful design.

ribbon included with each
ornament for hanging. Each
2019 Reindeer Snowflake Ornament is $55 and includes

With satin finished Rosalene glass
for her canvas, award-winning Fenton designer
Robin Spindler created and hand painted this
stunning one-of-a-kind vase (11.5" tall). Her
depictions of the White Tiger mother and cubs are
breathtaking to behold! One view has the mother
with a cub and another view has a cub peering out
of the dense foliage. The soft pink background is
a perfect contrast to the hand painted flowers and
greenery, and the White Tigers are remarkably
realistic. Note those splendid blue eyes! Rosalene,
a classic Fenton glass color, has pure gold in the
batch that is responsible for the wonderful pink
blush that Fenton collectors have come to love
since the 1970s.
Fenton artist Michelle Kibbe has this
splendid one-of-a-kind Opal Satin hand painted Owl
figurine (5.75" tall) decorated to absolute perfection
in anticipation of the coming Winter and holiday
season! You'll love the hand painted smiling snowman
and the vivid red male Cardinal bird, but don't
overlook the many delightful details: snowflakes,
delicate pine trees, wrapped presents, holly sprigs,
etc. The airbrushed blue background is just right for
the contrasting hand painted design elements in rich
purple tones, as you can see in the photos!

Wednesday, October 2.
