NFGS Annual Mice for 2016

By Sharon Fenner

Once again the NFGS is offering two annual mice.  First is the Green Topaz which is available for $31.  Next is the Orange Slice Satinized mouse available for $25.  These are available only to members renewing for the 2016 membership year, limited to one of each per household (Primary member), on a first come, first serve basis.   Quantities are limited - renew early to ensure receiving your 2016 annual mice. 

Please note:  Green Topaz is a unique color - one that will never be duplicated.  The NFGS ordered the mouse in Topaz Opalescent.  There was difficulty producing the mouse in Topaz.  It was coming out more of a green color.  This is due to the fact that this glass color is typically produced using gas, not electricity, therefore the oxygen level couldn't be adjusted.  We think we have a desirable color to offer - one that has never been made, and can never be reproduced.  This only adds to the rarity of our Green Topaz mouse for 2016!!  Quantities are very limited!!  Add this little gem to your collection!

The moral of the story is, "never give up on your quest for that elusive piece of Fenton you desire".  The beautiful lamp (right) is a testament to that.
