Michelle Kibbe researched fox breeds to depict
on our 4.5" Opal Satin Fox Figurine and discovered the
Canadian Marble Fox. This interesting fox has thick white fur
with large patches and stripes of black on the body, across
the face and on the ears. Michelle hand painted the figurine
in a realistic style. Note those large brown eyes!
Each Canadian Marble Fox Figurine is $80.
Did you know. . . The coloration of
the Canadian (Arctic) Marble Fox is created from the
intervention of humans when breeding the red fox. Marble
foxes occur as genetic mutations, called color phases. The
kits are born in captivity.
Michelle continues her Canadian Marble Fox
design on this 8.75" Opal Satin Vase. She hand painted a
rocky landscape that encircles the vase. The Fox closely
observes a bird perched on a small branch. Michelle added
colorful foliage accents. Additional views are shown
Each Canadian Marble Fox Vase is $175.
Kim Barley's Give Thanks design on our
2.75" Eggplant Mouse Figurine is sure to become a collector
favorite! Kim adorned this figurine in colorful seasonal
attire, including a striped sweater, blue slacks and brown shoes. She hand painted
the words "give Thanks" on one ear with a turkey and a pumpkin
on the other ear. A large sunflower is painted on one side. As
always, the large eyes and expression on the face is sure to
make you smile! Each Give Thanks
Mouse Figurine is $80.

Sculptor Jon Saffell designed the Fenton Art Glass Ghost
Figurine (#5278) and it debuted in the Fenton Halloween
line in 2002. Collectors were quick to embrace this Fenton
Halloween figurine with the friendly smile.
Michelle Kibbe has transformed this 5.75" Opal Satin Ghost
figurine into a "scarecrow", complete with straw stuffing!
The scarecrow hangs on a wooden pole and is decked out in
colorful patchwork clothing.
You'll love the hand painted details: bib overalls, brown
jacket and the red heart patch that adorns one knee.
Additional photos below show all views of this figurine,
from the brown cloth hat, the autumn landscape with brown
fence to the patchwork details on the face. Note the black
crow perched on one of the scarecrow's outstretched
arms. The crow has a bit of straw in its beak, perhaps
borrowing some for use in a nest?
Did you know. . .
Scarecrows are usually dressed in old
clothes and placed in an open field to discourage
blackbirds and starlings from feeding on seeds and
sprouting crops. There's even been research that shows
realistic facial features and brightly colored clothes may
be better at shooing away birds. Also, moving a scarecrow
around every few days often helps.
Each Mr. Scarecrow Ghost Figurine is $115.
Michelle Kibbe's depiction of a cow on this 4"
x 4.5" Opal Iceberg Paperweight is simply splendid!
Those large brown eyes will bring lots of "ooohs and aaahs". .
. even if you're not a fan of bovines! We have had requests
for designs featuring cows and we are pleased to deliver!
Michelle added a background with a fence and large sunflowers
in full bloom. Each How Now Brown Cow Iceberg
Paperweight is $80 and limited to 14.

addition to your collection. The design for this figurine

Whitaker and entered the Fenton Art Glass product line in
This sweet 4" figurine is handcrafted in
Opal Satin glass and features a delightful scene by Kim
Barley. The Dinosaur is munching on some leaves, while a young Pterodactyl
takes flight for perhaps the first time.
Another Dinosaur has just hatched from its
speckled egg. Kim painted the Dinosaur's body in soft
green hues and added golden stripes on the tail and
colorful flower and vegetation accents. Note those large
golden black eyes.
Each Dino Babies Dinosaur Figurine is $80.
Robin Spindler continues to channel
another era with her latest "tie dye" design. She

figurine. Robin airbrushed and hand painted the figurine, resulting in an amazing blend of
You'll love the vibrant shades of blue, red, yellow, orange, and green in

as the young-at-heart! Note the Turtle's friendly grin, large
eyelashes and polka dot accents on the head.

Halloween will be here soon, and this one-of-a-kind hand
painted Alley Cat (11" tall) from Fenton artist Kim Barley
will really make a statement! The grey striped background is
just perfect for all of Kim's wonderful hand painted details:
bats, stars, candy corn, pumpkins, signage, a festive orange
and black bow, purple toes ... and just look at those eyes
above the Alley Cat's characteristic grin! The Alley Cat,
first made by Fenton in 1970, is among the best-loved and most
collectible Fenton Art Glass products. This one-of-a-kind hand
painted Alley Cat figurine is identified, dated and signed
inside: "Kim Barley 2019 OOAK".
With Chocolate glass for her canvas, Fenton
artist Michelle Kibbe designed and hand painted this
spectacular one-of-a-kind square vase (7.5" tall). Each panel
of this vase has a different hand painted scene, ranging from
mountains and pine trees to depictions featuring a soaring
Bald Eagle. As you can see from the photos, the visual details
of Michelle's hand painting are remarkably lifelike as a
majestic Bald Eagle swoops to catch a fish in the stream and
another one soars above the landscape. Chocolate glass
originated about 1900 in Greentown, Indiana, where it was
perfected by Jacob Rosenthal, who later became the first
Fenton Art Glass factory manager. Fenton has made Chocolate
glass at various times, including the 1976 Bicentennial and
the 100th anniversary of the glass company in 2005. The square
vase originated at the Duncan Miller glass factory in the
1920s, and Fenton Art Glass acquired this mould in the 1960s.
The four tall panels provide great latitude for Fenton's
decorators to showcase all of their hand painting talents and
skills. This one-of-a-kind hand painted vase is identified,
dated and signed on the underside: "hand painted by M. Kibbe
It's not too early to be thinking about
Christmas ... especially when you see this splendid
one-of-a-kind Opal ornament (3.25" diameter) designed and
colorfully hand painted by Fenton artist Michelle Kibbe. In
this hand painted scene, the family cat is curled up in front
of the fireplace, and the Christmas stockings ("hung with
care" we're sure!) are there for all to see while awaiting
Santa's visit. Note the embossed snowflake on the reverse
side. The attached silver cord makes this ornament ready to
hang on your tree. This one-of-a-kind hand painted ornament is
dated "2019" on the front and identified, dated and signed on
the reverse side: "M. Kibbe 2019 OOAK".
These Fenton's eBay auctions will end at 2 p.m. ET on
Wednesday, October 9.
