First is this one-of-a-kind Chessie covered candy box in satin-finished Crown Tuscan glass, made with the historic Fenton mould by our friends at Mosser Glass. Fenton artist Kim Barley created and hand painted the delightful "Follow Your Heart" motif, and the photos here speak for themselves to testify to its attractiveness. This one-of-a-kind Chessie candy box is identified, signed and dated on the underside ("Kim Barley 2017 OOAK"), and Kim's signature also appears on the cover. Second is the wood "chill" (7" tall, 10.75" wide) that is among the first steps in the mouldmaking process.The chill, marked "Chessie Cat Mould" was made in the Fenton pattern shop and is also dated (8-4-70), marking the time when Fenton first began to create this item especially for the Chesapeake & Ohio railway company. Third is a plaster rendering (3.75 tall) of the Chessie cat portrait, created by a skilled mouldmaker and used to create the pattern in the mould.
