I want to know how to tell if a glass egg I bought at a yard sale is a real fenton art pedistal egg?

This egg is glass with hand painted by: mike lemon written on the back. It also has a sticker on the back that says Fenton 1989. It is made with a pedestal attached also made of glass. Its white iridescent
with pink and purple tulips painted on one side. I would like to know its value also. I got it at a yard sale for .25 cents. I have already tried looking on Fenton art glass website, but I could not find any thing listed with that date. I don’t know any other way of looking it up on the web.

Where can I buy original glass art by Tennessee artist?

I am making a beautiful and unique mobile for my baby. The theme is based on original and unique works of glass art (blown, stained, etc.) from each state that I’ve been to while pregnant with my baby girl. I’ve found a couple stores in the West End that sell the kind of pieces I am looking for, however those pieces were not made in Tennessee or by Tennessean artists. I appreciate any help with artist names, sites, stores, etc.

Other states I’ve been to while pregnant:

Hawaii
California
Arizona
Colorado
Ohio
