Fenton Hobnail White Milk Glass - Small Star Bon Bon 4.5" or Double Crimped Footed Vase 4" Vintage Art Glass Home Decor

$19.17


These darling vintage Hobnail White Milk Glass pieces are from Fenton Art Glass, known for their gorgeous ruffled glass in various colours. Here we have a Small Star Bon Bon 4" and a Double Crimped Footed Vase 4". Fenton added the highly successful Hobnail pattern to their line in other colours of glass in 1939 and collectors fell in love with it. The milk glass Hobnail was added in the 1950s and discontinued in the 1980s. Both pieces are without a makers mark but have been positively identified as genuine Fenton pieces by the shape, hobnail glass pattern and the distinctive quality of the Fenton Milk Glass; which is optically a much brighter shade of white compared to other manufacturers of Milk Glass and without the typical imperfections seen from most other manufacturers of glassware. The quality of Fenton Art Glass is unparalleled, there is a reason it has been such a prized acquisition of fine glass collectors for so many years.

The measurements for each piece are as follows:

Small Star Bon Bon 4 1/2"
Width: 4 1/2 inches
Height: 2 5/8 inches

Double Crimped Footed Vase 4":
Height: 4 inches
Width: 3 7/8 inches

Condition: Both of these vintage pieces are in excellent condition, in fact they are quite mint with no signs of use or wear. They look lovely together but the option to order one individually is there (one of each available.)

Please refer to the pictures as they are a part of the description. If you have any concerns about the condition or you require more detail I can provide additional photographs on request. All vintage/antique items are sold as-is. There are no cancellations once your shipment has been received by the post office and there are no returns or exchanges.

Some additional information on Fenton Art Glass:

How Fenton Glass Was Manufactured:
"To create any given piece of Fenton art glass, master craftsman would blow molten glass into hand-carved molds. Pieces were then removed after cooling and reheated to allow the artisans to create Fenton’s signature flirty edges or special spouts. Items like pitchers and baskets would receive hand-blown handles and pieces with more than one part, like cake stands, would be secured together with molten glass.

Hobnail glass was popular in Victorian times, then, it was called "dewdrop glass." When Fenton introduced it in 1939, it became a hit. Pre-1958 Fenton milk glass is said to be easily distinguishable because it is less dense, less opaque, than their milk glass made from 1958 onwards. Also, the Fenton logo was introduced on milk glass from 1974 onwards, with a tiny number "8" below the word Fenton for pieces made during the 1980s and a tiny "9" for pieces from the 1990s."

"The original factory was in an old glass factory in Martins Ferry, Ohio, in 1905.[1] The factory at one time was owned by the former West Virginia Glass Company.[2] At first they painted glass blanks from other glass makers, but started making their own glass when they became unable to buy the materials they needed.[2] They moved across the Ohio River to Williamstown, West Virginia, and built a factory in 1906. The first year for glass production was 1907.[1] In 1908 John Fenton left the company and founded the Millersburg glass company in Millersburg, OH.[1]
Frank Fenton was the designer and decorator. From 1905 to 1920, the designs made there were heavily influenced by two other glass companies: Tiffany and Steuben. But the many different colors were the work of Jacob Rosenthal, a famous glass chemist who is known for developing chocolate and golden agate glass.[3] Towards the end of 1907, the Fenton brothers were the first to introduce carnival glass, which later became a popular collector's item.[4]
During the Great Depression and World War II, Fenton produced practical items (such as mixing bowls and tableware) due to shortages. At the same time, they continued creating new colors. Towards the end of the Great Depression they also produced perfume bottles for the Wrisley Company in 1938. The bottles were made in French opalescent glass with the hobnail pattern.[5]
In 1940, Fenton started selling Hobnail items in French Opalescent, Green Opalescent and Cranberry Opalescent. The Hobnail pattern glass would become the top-selling line and allowed the Fenton company to exist during WWII and to expand after the war. In the late 1940s, the top three members of Fenton's management died. Frank Fenton and Wilmer C. "Bill" Fenton immediately stepped in and took over the positions of President and Vice President, respectively. Over the next thirty years, they continued to expand Fenton Art Glass, despite a large number of glass factories closing down.
In 1986, George W. Fenton, Frank's son, took over as President of the company.[6]"

Frequently Asked Questions

Care instructions

Most vintage and antique glassware should be hand washed only and not in the dishwasher; especially any pieces with graphics or colourful patterns, for example Pyrex, Fire King, Glasbake, Corelle, drinkware, etc. Dishwashers can dull the finish on these unique pieces and cause premature wear to the surface and patterns or cause what is known as DWD or Dishwasher Damage which is irreversible. It's always better to be safe and wash by hand if you can.

Add some dish washing liquid into a sink or basin and add warm water. Placing a towel underneath can help to avoid breakage. It is best to use a damp cloth for any pieces with hand-painted decorations to preserve the art as even regular hand-washing can degrade these over time.

Does your store offer local pick-ups?

Absolutely! If you would like to coordinate a local pick-up in Durham Region you may either purchase the items and send a note after the fact to request a pick-up and we will then refund your shipping costs; or you can send a message prior to the order to request the local pick-up and we can remove the shipping costs on the items you wish to purchase. Ordering the items immediately will guarantee availability; this is the ideal method to ensure your selection(s) are not purchased by someone else in the interim, in case we do not respond to your inquiry soon enough (we will respond within 24 hours; however, we may not be available at the exact moment of your message)
