this is a picture of some of my most expensive pieces of fenton glass. the plum decanter in the back is absolutely stunning and rare...valued at around $500 or so. i also have 6 plum hobnail cordial glasses that go with the decanter. the big plate in the back is HUGE! it is around 16 inches in diameter. one of the largest pieces of glass fenton made in the hobnail pattern. it is called a torte plate and was sold individually as well as incorporated into a punch set as an underplate. this is a rarity! one recently, less than a month ago or so sold on ebay for over $1000 and that one has scratches..mine is perfect. the topaz sherbert is a rarity as well...i showed in in an earlier posting. the cranberry candle holders are very nice...they both have clear crystal applied finger holders. hope you all like thanks

    oh thank you! it is a great piece. i have a pair of them sitting on the fireplace...they look great at night if you take a tall battery operated candle and place it in the center hole. thanks for your comment!

    Thanks for posting such a pretty photo of part of your collection. I am not a collector, but I have a Fenton glass piece like the one you have in the front row left, and I have a round-bodied pitcher and set of straight-sided juice-type glasses in the same color that were my grandmothers, which I treasure for the memories of her using them on Thanksgiving Day. I think she may have owned some things in plum, but I don't know what happened to those. It is nice seeing somebody else treasure and care for these pieces.
