This week's featured items include a wonderful hand painted scene
by Michelle Kibbe on our 11" Marble Alley Cat. An alert
black and white dog appears to have flushed out a Bobwhite
Michelle created this realistic scene using
the gray color striations as her background, which add an
interesting effect to the entire scene. She added blue skies
in the background and scrub grass and plants with red
berries in the foreground. The hand painted details are
marvelous to behold.
The Alley Cat is among the most collectible
items in Fenton history and is also 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! Note those golden-black eyes!
The mould for this tall figurine 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 Bobwhite Quail Alley Cat is $180.
A great companion piece for the "Bobwhite
Quail" Alley Cat is this 4.5" tall Opal Satin Fox
figurine. Michelle Kibbe created a similar design
with two Bobwhite Quail and a rustic fence and scrub grass
landscape. The figurine is airbrushed to create a perfect
"sky blue" background for Michelle's hand painted scene.
The tail is painted in soft brown tones with painted grass
Did you know. . . Bobwhite Quail are
not considered good fliers. They can fly relatively short
distances, with their average flight lasting for about 5.1
seconds. However, they have strong legs to help them walk
or run quickly away from danger. Each
Bobwhite Quail Fox Figurine is
We're sure that Kim Barley's many fans will agree that
"It's never too early for Halloween!" Kim designed a fun
Halloween themed design on our 8" Opal Satin Chessie Cat
Covered Box. The front features grinning carved pumpkins
and a purple bat that seem to be disturbing the black
kitty's catnap! The kitty's blue-green eyes are wide
open! Kim talent for painting whimsical details shines on
this two-part covered box . . . from the spider dangling
from a web with the word "HALLOWEEN" at the top to the
purple bat and laughing carved pumpkins.
Fenton Art Glass created this item
especially for the Chesapeake & Ohio railway company. The
popular "Chessie" cat character was used as a symbol for
the "C&O" Railway. They used this artwork with their
advertising slogan that when traveling on their railway
you would "sleep like a kitten".
In addition to the artist's signature, the
base of this box is embossed with the words "Chessie by

Halloween designs! She certainly has a talent for her fun
creations! We're sure her "Trick or Treat Halloween"
design on our 2.75" Caramel Mouse figurine will please
both the young and the young-at-heart! Note the fabulous
whimsical hand painted details, from the adorable "bat"
design on the shoes, to the spider and the hand
lettering on the ears! Kim even painted the mouse's face
to look like it is wearing a pumpkin mask! The colors on
the shirt are bright and seasonal with vivid yellow,
orange, black and green stripes with polka dots and star
Trick or Treat Halloween Mouse Figurine is $80.
Robin Spindler's sister recently showed her a photo of a
beautiful "Glasswing Butterfly". Robin was inspired by
this photo to create her version of this beautiful butterfly as her
design on this 7" tall Crystal Iceberg Paperweight.
Robin used a "reverse painting" technique
to create her "Glasswing". Part of the design is
applied on the reverse side of the paperweight
and then painted over it. She finished the design by
painting on the front, creating a beautiful
The photos below also show the back side of
the paperweight. You can see where Robin painted a floral
background and the clear with black outlined delicate
butterfly wings that have a transparent look.
Robin then painted a soft creamy white to
cover the floral background on the back, leaving the clear
glass and painted details of the wings. Each brushstroke
is meticulously executed and a tribute to Robin's talent
The beauty of this Crystal Iceberg
Paperweight was challenging to capture with a camera lens,
so please take our word for it that it is beautiful.
Butterfly Iceberg Paperweight is $115.
Did you know. . .
Though the Glasswing Butterfly's wings appear to be
quite delicate, they can carry up to 40 times their own
body weight. These beautiful butterflies are abundant in Mexico, Panama, and
Colombia, but may also be found as far north as Florida.
Michelle Kibbe's artistic talent for
capturing wildlife is evident on this 5.5" round Cobalt
Paperweight. Her rendition of a 12-point Buck is so true
to life. . . it looks as if that deer is staring right at
you. . . always watchful, always alert!
She created a forest scene in the
background with barren trees and a milky blue sky. The
majestic Buck stands alert, perhaps listening for the
sound of an approaching predator. This Cobalt Paperweight would make a great gift for the
nature enthusiast or to use as a desk paperweight. . .
think about a "Father's Day" gift idea!
Each 12-Point Buck Paperweight is $110.
Did you know . . .
White-tail Bucks shed and re-grow their antlers every
year. Each winter a Buck sheds, or casts, their antlers.
They then start growing a new set of antlers. Antlers are
the fastest organ regeneration in the animal family,
growing up to several inches per day.
Below: Kim continues to channel her
whimsical side with this adorable hand painted design on
our 5" Opal Satin Stylized Cat figurine. The body is a
blend of soft shades of purple. Kim added large "candy
corn" shaped eyes and lots of candy corn accents to her
A trio of pumpkins are stacked to create
perhaps the first ever "Pumpkin Snowman", complete with
twig arms! A black cat with white fangs stands guard among
the candy corn, white stars and blue moon. Polka dot,
candy, and star accents complete the piece.
Pumpkin Snowman Stylized Cat Figurine is $95.

Halloween, and this one-of-a-kind Opal Satin vase (11"
tall) has all sorts of hand painted Halloween symbols,
from grinning pumpkins and a scraggly tree to flying
bats and a Witch on a broomstick! Kim's colorful Hoot
Owl sits quietly to take it all in but doesn't seem to

black cat with frizzy fur and wide eyes wears a green
witch's hat! No matter where you look at this vase,
there's something "all about Halloween" for you to
Say welcome to Spring with this wonderful
one-of-a-kind hand painted Opal Satin glass fairy
light (5" tall) from Fenton artist Michelle Kibbe.
Michelle airbrushed both the base and the shade in
light green tones that are the perfect canvas for her
hand painted floral motif and a delightful Chickadee
perched on the roof of its new birdhouse home! The
colorful flowers and green foliage are meticulously
done, and we can almost hear the characteristic song
of the Chickadee. A battery-powered tea light is

robe and Santa's hood. You'll love all the meticulous
hand painted details, from the twinkle in Santa's blue
eyes and his white beard and eyebrows to the green
holly sprigs and delicate yellow berries. Ruby
