Introducing the NFGS Convention Souvenir for 2022

By Sharon Fenner

Our souvenir of 2022 is a Loggerhead Shrike designed and hand-painted by former Fenton Gift Shop Artist Susan Bryan. Using a Mosser Glass Marble Happiness Bird as a canvas, the pictures don't do this creation justice. The attention to detail is amazing!

The Loggerhead Shrike is listed on the Registration Form enclosed with this issue of the Fenton Flyer. They one per household for $89.00.

Critter Corner                                        By Becki Ann Selby

Fenton's 5177 Alley Cat was created by Reuben Haley in 1924 for the US Glass Company (also known as Tiffin), and called Sassy Susie. US Glass produced the Alley Cats in Black and White from 1924 to the mid-1940s. Fenton acquired the mould in the 1960s, but didn't put it into production until 1970. The cats stand 10.5-inches tall!
