Shown at right are the three latest Limited Edition selections with pre-orders
due by midnight on Monday, December 2, 2019.

The Alley Cat is among the most collectible items in Fenton history. This whimsical 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. We're sure this latest Limited Edition Alley Cat will become a collector favorite!


Michelle Kibbe's delightful "Nutcracker Soldiers" design works well on the glass canvas of our 11" Opal Satin Alley Cat Figurine. She created a soft blue background with delicate snowflakes. Three Nutcracker Soldiers, clad in colorful uniforms, stand guard on the front of this figurine. Each soldier holds a star-topped staff. Note the brilliant blue eye and winking eye on this Alley Cat! Each Nutcracker Soldiers Alley Cat Figurine is $190.

The first Fenton Tree (5535) was offered in the 1992 Christmas catalog supplement. The 6.5" tree was created by designer Cathy See and initially 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. We're pleased to once again offer the 6.5" Tree in Opal Satin, featuring a colorful Holly and Hearts hand painted design by Michelle Kibbe. She created the tree background in soft green shades and added a bright red, white and green striped border around the base. Large heart-shaped designs with sparkling glitter and small holly and berry sprigs adorn all sides of this figurine. See inset photos above for details on the holly sprig and glitter heart. Each Holly Hearts Tree Figurine is $80.

We're pleased to include this seasonal favorite to our Limited Editions for this week. . . 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 created a whimsical "Apple Harvest" scene with the pumpkinhead holding a basket of recently harvested apples. A menagerie of creatures keep an eye on things... there a black crow perched on one arm of the scarecrow and a large black cat is peeking over a pumpkin. A smaller black cat with a gray mouse pal observe the scene. Kim added a large sunflower with smaller floral details. Note the checkered front and the delightful details on the face! Additional views of this "Apple Harvest" Pumpkinhead Figurine are shown below. Each Apple Harvest Pumpkinhead Figurine is $110.


Pre-orders for the Nutcracker Soldiers Alley Cat, the Holly Hearts Tree Figurine and Apple Harvest Pumpkinhead Figurine will be accepted until midnight (ET) on Monday, December 2, 2019.

The larger sized crystal paperweights were made by Mosser Glass. The small round crystal round paperweight was made at Fenton Art Glass. The Opal Satin Sitting Cat Figurine was made by Mosser, using the original Fenton mould, for the Fenton Gift Shop.


Pre-orders for the Tourlitis Lighthouse Iceberg Paperweight, Ghost from the Past Large Round Paperweight, Mr. Gray Sitting Cat Figurine, and the Star Bright Snowman Small Round Paperweight will be accepted until midnight (ET) on Wednesday, December 4, 2019.


Robin Spindler recently researched lighthouses for a design idea and came across one named "Tourlitis Lighthouse", located in Greece. Captivated by the story behind this charming lighthouse, she made it the feature of her design on this 7" tall x 5" wide crystal Iceberg Paperweight.


This charming lighthouse is the only Greek lighthouse to be built entirely by Greek hands in 1897. A flight of stairs carved into the rocks lead to the lighthouse. It is perched on the islet of Tourlitis, a large chunk of craggy rock rising out of the sea, on Andros Island in Greece.


The lighthouse was bombarded during the World War II. It was restored in 1994. This is the first automatic lighthouse in Greece. The lighthouse "keeper "doesn't actually reside there.


Robin's hand painted details are meticulously executed (see additional photos below). Two white gulls glide above the large frothy waves on the front of the paperweight.

The Tourlitis Lighthouse is painted on the back, using a reverse painting technique, which results in an amazing three-dimensional effect. Each Tourlitis Lighthouse Iceberg Paperweight is $110.

Robin Spindler chose an interesting hand painted design theme for this 5.5" round crystal Paperweight. She recently commented about how animals seem to sense things that humans can't. While humans may not hear a noise or sense a movement, an animal may go in to an "alert mode" and stare at something in the distance. This gave Robin the idea for the "Ghost from the Past" design.


Using a reverse painting technique, Robin created a sunset scene with a dark forest. Note the soft golden-pink hues of the setting sun in the background. A large buck (painted in the background) and a doe  (in the foreground) stare at a ghostly image of a soldier, perhaps from the Revolutionary War. This  Paperweight will definitely start an interesting conversation! Each Ghost From
The Past
Round Paperweight
is $110.

Kim Barley transformed this 3.75" Opal Satin Sitting Cat Figurine into an adorable kitty we named "Mr. Gray". She used gray, white and black to create the subtle shades of fur on this figurine. Note those large golden eyes, white whiskers and pink-tipped ears! "Mr. Gray" would make a perfect gift for the figurine collector or cat enthusiast in your life. . . or treat yourself! Each Mr. Gray Sitting Cat Figurine is $80.

Kim Barley loves creating her popular whimsical scenes. She continues her snowman theme on this 3.5" Round Crystal Paperweight. Using the reverse painting technique, she hand painted a cute smiling snowman with bright blue eyes gazing at a brilliant and sparkling golden star. The face is painted on the back of the paperweight and the star is on the front, creating a wonderful three-dimensional effect. Each Star Bright Snowman Round Paperweight is $65.

Pre-orders for the
Tourlitis Lighthouse Iceberg Paperweight, Ghost From The Past Round Paperweight, Mr. Gray Sitting Cat Figurine, and the Star Bright Snowman Round Paperweight will be accepted until midnight (ET) on Wednesday, December 4, 2019.

Items featured this week. . .

Here's a wonderful one of-a-kind hand painted Stylized Cat on Fount figurine (9" tall to the tops of the ears!) from Fenton artist Michelle Kibbe. Satin finished Ruby glass (made by Mosser using the Fenton Art Glass mould) provides the perfect background for Michelle's festive scene of playful Snowmen and Snowwomen, from her whimsical painting style to the many details on this Stylized Cat on Fount figurine. The cat sports a scarf with red crosshatch design that matches the scarves on the snowmen. Note the hand painted details on the cat's face! Michelle’s wintry scene has Snowmen and Snowwomen frolicking in a snow-covered landscape of pine trees and falling snow. Dotted white accents encircle the top section of the entire base of the fount. Animal figurines on the fount as pressed in production are among the most popular Fenton collectibles, and this example will have pride of place in any collection. This one-of-a-kind hand painted Ruby glass Stylized Cat on Fount is identified, dated and signed: "2019 hand painted by M. Kibbe OOAK".


Just in time for Christmas 2019, here’s an opportunity to purchase a special sample item from “Fenton Christmas past!” Introduced in the 1990’s as part of the “Birth of a Savior” series designed by artist/designer Frances Burton, this limited edition iridescent Spruce Green open edge plate (9.25” diameter) was called “The Arrival” and debuted in 1998, limited to 2500. The hand painted scene will be familiar to all of those who enjoy traditional, well-known Christmas stories. This plate, produced from a mould that originated at Westmoreland Glass, was hand painted by Fenton artist Pam Fleak, and her signature can be seen on the reverse side, along with the inscribed designation “sample.” Randy Fenton, Fenton Gift Shop president/treasurer, has personally signed this plate as well. These Fenton's eBay auctions will end at 2 p.m. ET on Wednesday, December 4th.
