Our Annual Membership Mice

By Sharon Fenner

For 2021, we offered two mice in Dandelion Yellow Carnival ($33) - a very bright opaque yellow, and Green Opalescent Iridized. The Green Opalescent Iridized mouse has sold out.  We are substituting Ruby Slag Iridized ($33) or Orange Slice Satin ($25).

Primary Members who are current on their 2021 dues may order their choice of two of the mice, per household. All colors are quite limited.

Fenton Mandarin Red and Venetian Red

By Kirsten, Kathy and Tim Eichholz

Fenton began producing red opaque heat-sensitive glass, originally called Venetian Red, around 1924-27 and re-introduced this color as Mandarin Red from 1933-35. The early orange pieces are called 'Flame' by collectors. Pieces that were made from moulds also used to produce stretch glass can generally be regarded as being made during the Venetian Red period. These include the candy boxes, the #550 large 12-panel bowl and the small #545 cupped bowl. 







Golden Flax on Cobalt

By Claire and Alan Kauffung

In 1995, Fenton introduced Golden Flax on Cobalt, designed by Frances Burton. There are 12 pieces in the line. The color code for the pattern is KG.

Introducing the NFGS             Secretary / Office Manager

By Alan Fenner

On December 16, 2020, Jenny Bruce began training with Samantha Inman who has moved on to full-time employment. 

We appreciate all that Samantha did during her tenure with the NFGS!  

Sadly, Jenny left her position on February 11, 2021, due to health issue. We wish her a complete and speedy recovery. We appreciate all she did for the NFGS membership during the brief time she was our Secretary / Office Manager.

Hopefully, in the May / June issue we have someone to introduce.

By Sharon Fenner

The Bald Eagles that are on back-order are being hand-painted by Robin Spindler. We aren't accepting any more orders, but hope to be able to ship those on order, possibly in April. A total of seventy eagles were sold. 

Thank you for your orders and patience!
