here is one of my favorite fenton lamps. it is done in the honey amber hobnail overlay pattern and is quite rare. i have never seen another one with the little finger hole on the bottom part. the shade is wonderful when lit up, it just glows. the lamp is shown next to some of the other hobnail items i own...there is the turquoise hobnail epergne shown, the blue opal jam pot orange hobnail basket, and other pieces. i hope that you enjoy this lamp and display.

    I would have a heart attack for the green punch bowl in the back for a great price.... If you wait long enough someday it will happen.

    haha. yeah i paid $150 for the complete set (the punch bowl, base, glass ladle, and 12 cups). but there are only 500 bowls in existence and they are getting harder and harder to find. there are probably far less than 500 bowls now...they are quite fragile and very large making them easy to break. i have a blue opalescent hobnail set, a pink opalescent hobnail set and the super rare topaz opalescent hobnail set all still in their original shipping boxes. i paid $150 for each of those complete sets as well. so, good luck with you search and thanks for the love!

    You got them for good prices. I'm sticking to the emerald and plum hobnails, except for my lamp. I've packed them up for now until my girls are older and I get a curio to make sure they won't break. I think I'd cry if they broke! Hahaha. Glad you added more glass, it was getting kind of boring around here...

    yes i did, i got them all from the same person. and i know...if my glass broke i would be so sad. luckily my kids are older and i have the entire basement for my glass collection. i have built-in shelves with glass doors from floor to ceiling on every wall...its like walking into a museum. haha. thanks again for your comments!
