Vintage Fenton Art Glass Cranberry Opalescent Hobnail 5" Ruffle Bowl
Product Description And Additional Pictures
In the 1950 Fenton Hobnail Catalog, this pristine vintage piece is described as #389, 5 Inch Vase. In this catalog, Fenton stated that they were the only plant in America producing gold ruby, the beautiful cranberry glass this wonderful vase was made out of. The catalog further states:
"Cranberry opalescent gold ruby cased with French opalescent glass is not a stain or decoration, but is actually embodied in the glass and is obtained by the addition of gold coin to the glass batch."
There is no disputing that Fenton artists were truly master glass artisans, as their pieces are still beautiful and desirable!
This vintage Fenton art glass cranberry hobnail opalescent hobnail bowl measures approximately 4-3/4" high and 5-3/4" across at its widest point. The opalescent hobs are in perfect condition and graduate evenly from light to solid white until they meet the cranberry ruffle. This wonderful vintage Fenton art glass piece bowl no chips, cracks, or any other blemishes. There is no signature or makers mark on the bottom, which identifies this vintage Fenton art glass cranberry opalescent hobnail bowl to a manufacture date before 1970.
