Light Up Your Holidays!

By Sharon Fenner

We are happy to offer two beautiful items for your holiday decorating. 

On Row 1, is our NFGS mouse in the 'String of Lights' design. It joins the four previously offered critters - 2018 Waving Bear, 2019 Crouching Cat, 2020 5165 sitting Cat and 2021 Polar Bear. The NFGS mouse is Mosser made in their Milk Opal glass. It is designed and hand-painted by CC Hardman. They are very limited, available on a first come/first serve basis, for $65.00, on December 5, 2022.

 

 On the bottom row we have our second cute item - a Polar Bear in Opal Glass made at the Mosser Company in our NFGS mould. Our Polar Bear is a great complement to the 'String of Lights' pieces, but is equally adorable on his own. Karen Easton created and hand-painted the Polar Bears that were made at the Mosser Glass Company in their Lighting Opal  glass.  They are very limited, available on a first come/first serve basis, for $79.00, on December 5, 2022.

Fenton and the Encore Glass Club

By Marsha Miller

Dorothy Taylor was a carnival glass collector who wanted to encourage interest in iridescent glass that was popular in the earlier part of the twentieth century. She started the Encore club for fellow carnival glass enthusiasts in 1975.

Part II of this article is in this issue. So much more great information.

Recent Finds

By Becki Ann Selby

 

This unique 'muddy' looking Mandarin Red Ivy Ball was purchased at the October 2022 NFGS auction. It was produced in 1964, and known to be one of two in existence. The original Fenton stickers, shown below, are on the bottom.

Check the 'box lots'! Found in the box was the Milk Glass Ivy Ball base needed for the Cranberry Ivy Ball.

ND22-13-Wisteria_750_octagonal_bowl.jpg

Top left: #750 octagonal bowl in Wisteria stretch. This bowl is only listed in Celeste Blue stretch and Crystal satin etched Ming.

Left row 2: Set of three Wisteria stretch toothpick (or pen holders) featuring two whimsy examples.

Left row 3: A bizarre #1502 flared vase in Lilac stretch(!), the only iridized piece of Lilac ever seen. It has a Diamond Optic interior, unusual for opaque glass, and looks very slaggy. 

Left row 4: A stunning #847 fan vase in an unusual color; nowhere near Wisteria, closest to an Orchid transparent - but not blue enough, and another example that isn't purple enough! 

Right row 1: Florentine Green Black enameled Dancing Nymphs cupped bowl. This very rare bowl sold for $1,200.

Right row 2: #570 Tangerine stretch vase with an extremely rare plain Tangerine flower block, which sold for $775.

Right row 3: #665 Wisteria stretch cigarett box with an elaborate cutting.
