A Time Remembered

Condition: Used
Manufacturer: Fenton Glass Company/Made in USA
This Milk Glass two-handled nut dish #3633, although unmarked, was made by the Fenton Glass Company.
The Fenton Art Glass Company was founded in 1905 by Frank L. Fenton and his brother John W. Fenton in an old glass factory building in Martins Ferry, Ohio. They began by painting decorations on glass blanks made by other glass manufacturers. Soon, being unable to get the glass they needed, they decided to produce their own glass. The first glass from the new Fenton factory in Williamstown, West Virginia, was made on January 2, 1907. In 1986, the leadership of the company passed on to the third generation, with George W. Fenton, Frank M's son, taking over as President. Today nine Fenton family members work together along with over 150 employees to create handmade glass artistry that is loved by collectors around the world. Fenton is known for its beautiful colors and patterns. Each piece of glass is an artistic creation by skilled glassworkers and decorators.
In their Hobnail pattern it features a curved handle with small raised beading on each side, a scalloped saw-tooth edge that has raised lines on the outside of the saw-tooth just before the Hobnail pattern begins and sits on an oval shaped low footed base.
In very good + condition, without chips, cracks or fleabites it measures 2 1/2 inches tall, 7 1/4 inches handle to handle and 3 1/2 inches wide.
An addition to any Fenton Milk Glass Hobnail Collection.
