Fenton Custard Glass Cat
« on: June 25, 2022, 05:22:06 PM »
This is one of the Fenton hand-painted uranium custard glass cats. Probably from the 1970's-80's, this one was painted by Valory Gherke who worked for Fenton on and off from 1977-99. Height is 9cm. and quite heavy at 310gms/11oz.

And the pose. It is beautifully modelled.
I try very hard to resist cute kittens. I do not succeed when they are well done.  ;D

Being kind to each other, does not take much😁
I collect a wide variety but proud of my animal collections, my WF full colour set of nailhead vases, my near complete collections of Darlek vases,& Mat Johansson 3D paperweights. Gobel frosted, Pukeberg, Liskeard, Lindshammer, Hadeline, Nybro, Dansk (metal and glass) Pirelli and other end of days animal and OMG so much more. Too many collections than I have space!!

Thanks Mbullock, I was actually looking for a cat in cobalt blue uranium glass but saw this one and couldn't resist it.
