    So I can't not buy uranium glass when I see it at the Goodwill. Bought these two small glass swans. They both have the iridescent carnival glass coating that the camera does not pick up. There are no markings on the swans at all and Google has a bunch of people stating that they are Fenton, but as I have found over the years, many people use Fenton to glass as Kleenex to tissues.

    Anybody have any ideas? If they are Fenton, anybody have any info on when they may have been made?

      side profile view and measurements would be helpful. Possibly Imperial Glass; here's another for comparison:

      Thanks for the info Tallcakes. I stumbled upon that second link and was trying to compare the Fenton and Dugan. That last link puts it firmly on Fenton. The random like lines of the tail feathers are almost identical.

      you're very welcome.
      the devil's in the details on some of these glass pieces; and this is one of them...

      Sure is, I never knew there were this many glass swans with just minor differences.

      Both are Fenton. Imperial swans have neck feathers that are long etches and fenton have dots/stippled neck feathers. Dugans and Fentons look more similar but these look like fentons based on the head shape and beaks.
