Up for auction this week is a special piece for every figurine collector or just like the limited edition pieces produced by Fenton Glass.

You don't come across these too often on ebay, as t's only 98 Total of these pretty little white foxes having been produced in 2002 for both the NFGS and the FAGCA conventions that year. This piece is signed by the artist M. Caplinger, as well as Eric Weber himself as "The Emporium", and handwritten #57 of 98, as well as "Convention 2002".

This pretty little guy was commissioned and designed by Eric Weber of "The Emporium". The pattern is that of pretty little purple and yellow violets among the green leaves and vines with a dainty little ellow and black bee flitting all over the flowers. If you happen to have the Special Orders book, written by John Walk covering the years 1980 - Present, the green book, you can find an example of this special little fox on page 234.

This little fox is so VERY pretty with her floral pattern and pretty face hanpainted on bright white satin glass. The condition is great. I find no nicks, chips, cracks, fractures, repairs, or discolorations.

The piece measures 5" tall and is about 3" wide at the bottom w it's big bushy tail curls around under it. I will be listing quite a few figurines this week. We love to combine shipping for you, should you win more than one auction within 7 days of eachother, that will help save a few dollars on shipping them all together.

Please feel free to ask any questions prior to bidding, we will be happy to reply back to you as fast as possible.

Thanks for taking the time to view my auctions, and I hope you would have a few more minutes to surf our other listings this week for other nice Fenton pieces, a few reference books and vintage ceramic pieces. My listings will be starting on Sunday AND Monday evenings this week, so please check back often.

Thanks, and Happy ebaying!

*******PLEASE READ, IT'S IMPORTANT!!************

We are selling items from our own personal home or glass collections and are trying to thin down the collections and clean house. We must ask that all sales are final, so please do view all photographs we have up on the items, and ask all questions prior to bidding.

We try our very best to describe all items accurately. I do rely HEAVILY on reference books, so please bid accordingly. Because all of these items come from our own collection, we liked nice pieces too. We know all too well the heartache of receiving items from ebay that came with undisclosed damage or weren't at all like photo'd or described. We didn't like it at all, and wouldn't knowingly do that to anybody else.

We describe all items and damage that would affect it's collectibility or value. We DO NOT make mention of normal wear and tear, minor surface scratches from wear and tear, manufacturing issues such as air bubbles, straw marks, rough or heavy seams, misformed shapes/ruffles, basket maker marks, ash deposits, etc.

Please keep in mind most of the glassware items we sell are between 20 -100 years old, and as such cannot be expected to be perfect and new. They have been around for many years and may show some minor signs of wear. WE WILL ONLY MENTION THESE ITEMS IF IT IS EXCESSIVE OR AFFECTS THE VALUE OR COLLECTIBILITY! If you are expecting 20 - 100 year old glass to look brand new, possibly you should be contacting a Fenton Dealer and look into collecting the new Fenton pieces!

As for Shipping, we love to combine items, but have had to conform to the new Postal Rules. They now surcharge non-standard sized boxes. Postage now is calculated on box size AND weight. So, as long as items can fit into the standard Postal Priority Shipping boxes, we will gladly combine items to save on postage. We still have boxes available to combine larger items, but the rate may not be that much different due to the size or shape of the box required.

When combining, we charge the actual weight of the box, insurance to value and a small packing/handling fee of...
