Fenton Gift Shop Presents NEW Limited Edition Selections!

Our talented team of artists has created beautiful and creative designs, now available for pre-order on these made in America Limited Edition selections.

 

Each Limited Edition will be signed, numbered and dated by one of our designers. The Fawn figurine is an original Fenton mould now owned by Mosser Glass. The other Limited Editions were made by Mosser, using original Fenton moulds, for Fenton Gift Shop.

This week's featured items include the delightful Snowman Fairy Light shown at right. Michelle Kibbe's hand painted design on our 7.25" Opal Satin Snowman Fairy Light includes a fawn at rest, but ever watchful of her surroundings.

 

Michelle created a colorful blue top hat with matching scarf and added white polka dots. Two pine cones with a sprig of pine provide an attractive accent for the hat band. This Fairy Light comes with a battery-operated tea light which emits a soft glow from the base of this two-part Snowman. See the photo below for additional views of this charming Limited Edition.

 

This Snowman Fairy Light was designed by Fenton sculptor Jon Saffell. Along with the Snowman and Snowlady figurines, they were in a grouping called "Frosty Friends" for several years. This Snowman Fairy Light is sure to become a decorating favorite! Each Fawn Snowman Fairy Light is $120 and includes a battery-operated tea light.

The original mould for this Fawn figurine was sold to Mosser Glass when the Fenton Art Glass factory closed. We are pleased to bring it back to the Fenton Gift Shop product line with a delightful hand painted design by Michelle Kibbe.

 

Michelle chose a "natural" look for this Fawn, which has already lost its spots. The Opal Satin 4.75" long figurine has been airbrushed in light brown tones with hand painted fur accents. As always, Michelle's details on the eyes are so realistic that you may want to reach out and touch it!


This figurine was introduced and included in the Fenton Art Glass "Natural Animals" collection in the mid-1980s.
Each Natural Fawn Figurine is $80.

Kim Barley air brushed this 3.5" Opal Satin Dinosaur figurine in a soft bronze hue and then added colorful painted accents. Note the large golden eyes that are highlighted with blue scales, the erupting volcano, the large blue scales and the vegetation, especially the interesting tall stems topped with blue polka dots! This delightful piece will make a great addition to any figurine collection! Each Volcano Dinosaur Figurine is $80.

 

Pre-orders for the Fawn Snowman Fairy Light, the Natural Fawn and Volcano Dinosaur Figurines will be accepted until midnight on Monday, February 24, 2020.

Robin Spindler continues to channel another era with her latest "tie dye" design . . . and her fans have been waiting for her design to be featured on our 5" Stylized Cat figurine! Robin airbrushed and hand painted the figurine, resulting in a beautiful blend of multi-colored brushstrokes that produce the iconic "tie-dye" pattern. You'll love the vibrant shades of blue, bright pink, yellow, golden-orange, and green. We're sure this figurine will appeal to the young as well as the young-at-heart! If you recently ordered Robin's Tie Dye Vase, as well as the Dino, Toad, Turtle, and Bear figurines, then you'll want to add this Stylized Cat as the perfect companion piece for your "Tie Dye" collection. Fenton Sculptor Jon Saffell designed the (5065) Cat figurine, known as the Stylized Cat, in 1999, much to the delight of our cat fanciers. Each Tie Dye Stylized Cat Figurine is $95.


This 8" Lighthouse was handcrafted in Opal Satin glass (5" base)
and crystal (3" top) at Mosser using the Fenton Art Glass moulds that were not used for production before glassmaking halted at Fenton in 2011. Collectors have enjoyed the charm of Fenton fairy lights for more than half a century. The flickering flame from a small candle inside a Fenton Fairy Light always seems to warm an entire room.

 

Michelle Kibbe created a beautiful scene featuring a ruby-throated hummingbird alighting atop a large white flower. Michelle's floral
design also includes greenery and pink blossoms and encircles the base of the Fairy Light. You'll receive a battery operated tea light
with each Lighthouse that fits perfectly on the top of the base in
a recessed area measuring approximately 1-1/5" diameter.

Each Ruby-throated Hummingbird
Lighthouse Fairy Light is $125.


Kim Barley's design on our 4" tall Opal Satin Snowman figurine brings back memories of a favorite holiday movie for many of us.

 

Look closely at the snowman's face and then look at the reindeer's red nose . . . remind you of any beloved holiday movie characters? Another hint: Kim named this figurine "Sam 'n Rudy".

 

Sam also has a familiar white mustache and beard with white eyebrows. The hand painted details are colorful and sure to bring a smile! Sam's top hat has a golden-yellow band with a holly sprig accent. He sports a black scarf, green earmuffs with white snowflake design, green plaid vest and an antique gold watch dangling from a pocket. A green umbrella with a brown handle rests at his side.

 

The young reindeer on the lower front has a bright red nose and adorable eyes! Kim added a snowy landscape that encircles the base. A snow covered green tree adorns the back side.

 

The Snowman and Snowlady figurines, along with the Snowman Fairy Light (shown above), were in a popular grouping called "Frosty Friends" for many years.

 

Each Sam 'n Rudy Snowman Figurine is $80.


This 5.5" Opal Satin Owl figurine is lovely from any angle! Michelle Kibbe's hand painted design on this figurine includes a rose colored front with realistic gray, blue and brown feather details.

 

The details are meticulously executed. Michelle's blend of colors suits this figurine perfectly! Note the green eyes and talons! Each Rosy Owl Figurine is $95.

 

Pre-orders for the Tie Dye Stylized Cat Figurine, Ruby-throated Hummingbird
Lighthouse Fairy Light, Sam 'n Rudy Snowman and the Rosy Owl Figurines 
will be accepted until midnight on Wednesday, February 26, 2020.

Fenton Art Glass Authorized eBay Auctions. . .

Here's your opportunity to own a lovely "one-of-a-kind" Fenton Art Glass creation through our weekly Fenton Art Glass eBay auctions. These Fenton Art Glass eBay auctions will end at 2 p.m. (ET) on Wednesday, February 26, 2020. Please click on the ebay logo to view all featured items.

Shown, far left: With Fenton's Ruby glass as her canvas, Fenton artist Michelle Kibbe designed and hand painted this one-of-a-kind birds scene on this 9.5" tall Basket. Her design encircles the basket and all the hand painted details are meticulous and perfect.

 

One view is of a Chickadee, Goldfinch and Bluebird, while another scene features a male
and female
Cardinal pair.

The birds are perched on snow-covered pine branches amidst falling snow.

The applied rib twisted crystal handle bears the mark of Fenton Art Glass skilled basket handler, Brian Green. The basket handler has about 25 seconds to do the following tasks: attach a glowing ribbon of molten glass to one side of the basket, deftly twist the rapidly cooling glass and stick it to the other side, impress the base of each side of the handle with his handler's mark and, finally, fashion the handle into a graceful arch.

This one-of-a-kind hand painted Whale figurine (5" long) is satin-finished Chocolate glass. Artist Michelle Kibbe created two hand painted scenes on the sides of this Whale figurine. One side depicts a lighthouse in the foreground with a sailboat nearby and mountains in the background. The other side features three sailboats in the distance and gulls flying overhead. Both hand painted scenes are remarkable for their realistic colors and details ... real tributes to Michelle's talents and skills.

Award-winning Fenton artist Robin Spindler designed and hand painted this splendid one-of-a-kind Owl figurine (5.5" tall), and her remarkable creativity, talents, and skills are certainly on full display. This Owl figurine is Opal Satin glass, and Robin's careful airbrushing resulted in the wonderful warm brown tones that contrast so beautifully with the hand painted white accents and those realistic amber eyes! The green glass Butterfly on the Owl's rocky perch has been painted gold on its underside, and this innovative technique creates a vivid iridescent look, as you can see in the photos.
These official Fenton Art Glass eBay auctions will end at 2 p.m. ET on Wednesday, February 26, 2020.
