Here's some Fenton Hobnail
history. In the mid-1930s, Fenton produced Hobnail pieces
for two customers: Lamp founts for a lighting company and
barber bottle reproductions for the L. G. Wright Glass
Company. A perfume manufacturer rep noticed the L. G. Wright
barber bottle in our Chicago rep's office. They wanted
this unique look designed as a perfume bottle. Frank L.
Fenton designed a bottle
that could be fitted with a wooden stopper. The resulting
Wrisley Perfume Bottle
sold very well.
By the early 1940s, Frank L.
Fenton had created our company's fledgling No. 389 Hobnail
line, which included baskets, bon bons, bowls, and several
other pieces. Most of these were offered in French
Opalescent, Blue Opalescent and Topaz Opalescent, as well as
Cranberry Opalescent (Cranberry Red). New items were
added in the 1940s and 50s, and our Milk Glass Hobnail was
also very successful.
In the 1960s and 70s, Hobnail was produced in different
treatments, ranging from transparent or opalescent colors to
vivid opaques and some iridized versions.

with random threading. The

swirl inside the vase as well as on the outside. More steps
