    What a beautiful collection. I collect cut glass,pressed glass and hobnail milk glass and some depression glass.
    I also collect antique jewelry. Hope you enjoy collecting glass ware as much as I do. As I said, you have a beautiful collection of fenton-hobnail. Karlene

    What an impressive collection, some of the pieces look like the coral I saw In a reef aquarium.
    Did the artist live near the sea?

    What a beautiful collection!!!!!!!! One question--the wine decanter in the back==is that the stopper that came with it? I have a decanter just like that and ordered a stopper and it appears to be just like the one in yours. I am surprised becasue I figured the stoppers would have some plum color to them.

    hi evelyn! the plum decanter does have its orginal stopper. these decanters in the plum color never had plum colored stoppers, but rather were always sold with a clear crystal hobnail stopper. thanks for your question!

    Just found this one for you...
  13. Mrj303 Mrj303, 5 years ago
    Just purchased a plum hobnail footed candy dish! But it has no lid.... off to find one!
  14. fenton-hobnail, 5 years ago
    I saw that on ebay today. Good luck ever finding a lid. They are next to impossible to find and if you ever do find one you will pay an arm and a leg for it. Good luck and thanks for your comment

    No banana boat?
  21. fenton-hobnail fenton-hobnail, 5 years ago
    actually i do have the banana is just boxed up sitting in the garage. i didnt have enough room to take a picture of every plum piece i have together. i will try to update it eventually. the carriage house which is connected to the garage has very limited room, especially counter room in the small little kitchen ...its like a small apartment...thats where i took this pic and many other of my pics was in the carriage house, instead of hauling all the pieces to the main house. i just moved and have not hauled many pieces to the basement yet. im still getting all the shelves, and display cabinets installed on all the walls. i will try to take of picture of all my pieces in the main house in the living room. there is much more room in there! thanks!

    I recently aquired the plum hobnail heart shaped dish w/ handle. I cant find any info on it. Is it rare? I find it in the other colors but not plum. Do you have this one? Do you know the age of this one? Thanks!!!!
