Fantastic 2012 Winter/Holiday Raffle....






The 2012 NFGS raffle includes three fantastic one-of-a-kind items.  This year is different in that we are having three individual raffles.  Tickets are $4 each, or three for $10.  Please specify the  item on which you wish to purchase tickets.  You may break up the purchase any way you like--all for one or some for each.  (NFGS members only)   nd12_NFGSDollface.JPG

nd12_NFGS_Doll.JPG

Words aren't adequate to describe this gorgeous one-of-a-kind Burmese doll, hand-painted in a Poinsettia motif, by Fenton designer Robin Spindler.  Her attention to detail on the ruffles and the gold highlights are awesome!  The colors compliment the blush in the Burmese perfectly.  

For the cat fancier members of the NFGS we are offering a one-of-a-kind shiny Custard 5165 cat with a floral design.  Check out the three little mice around the bottom of the cat.  Former Fenton designer CC Hardman worked her magic on this cute kitty.

Pendants, made from Fenton cullet, were offered during the 2012 convention.  At right we have a beautiful Periwinkle Blue pendant enhanced with a snow covered tree and cardinals design.  Retired Fenton artist Martha Renolds created and hand-painted this one-of-a-kind pendant.  You will be able to add the pendant to your favorite necklace.   

 

Please refer to the front cover of The Fenton Flyer for raffle details.  The drawing will be November 29th, so you will receive your item in ample time to enjoy for the holidays.

The Perfect Gift... New Glass from the NFGS.........................By Sharon Fenner

 

For the NFGS Premium Members we are offering a Burmese mouse with a "deer" design done in brown tones that complement the Burmese glass.  This little dear is hand-painted, signed and numbered by former Fenton Gift Shop Artist Susan Bryan.

 

For all NFGS members we have a 6" X 7" Crystal iceberg beautifully decorated in a serene "Home in the Mountains" winter scene.  It was designed and hand-painted by retired Fenton designer Martha Reynolds.  It is painted on both sides which gives added depth.

For our members who like "wearable" Fenton we have three different pendants hand-painted in seasonal themes by Martha Reynolds.  The Chocolate pendant complements our recent offering of beads and earrings.  They would make beautiful stocking stuffers.

Just 'Cuz it Says Fenton...

By Anne Nelson

There are way too many pieces mis-labeled as Fenton out there.  Here are a few more for you to be aware of.

The Orange footed dish was made by Viking. 

nd12_viking.JPG

nd12_BlueCarn_Girl.JPG
The blue-crested vase has no connection to Fenton.  The violet vase was designed by Fenton for Teleflora.  Both were made in China.nd12_Just_Cuz_-_Aqua_Crest_Vase.JPG The Blue Carnival doll was made by Boyd's Crystal Art Glass.nd12_Fenton_TeleFlora_Purple.JPG
