In the 1950 Fenton Hobnail Catalog, this lovely piece was described as #389, 6" vase.
Also 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.
This lovely cranberry opalescent hobnail ruffled vase by Fenton is in pristine vintage condition. This art glass vase measures 5 3/4 inches high and 4 1/2 wide at the broadest point across the ruffled top. The hobnails are in perfect condition and the opalescence is evenly distributed from the first row from the bottom to the fourth row. From the fifth row to the bottom of the ruffle, the white opalescent is unevenly shaded. The opalescence on the edges of the ruffle are not evenly distributed either. Please refer to the pictures. This beautiful vase was produced from the 1940's to the 1950's.
There is no makers mark on the bottom of this piece which Fenton did not apply until 1973.
Delightful to behold, this cranberry art glass vase will brighten up your home!
