I need help again. I got these at auction. I had a feeling they were Fenton but I didn't know what each piece is called. The first two pics are definately some type of bowl and the last pix it appears they are some form of vase. They stand 5 1/2 '. Anyone have an idea of the rest of their title and approx value. Same for the other unsolved mystery I have posted here. Thank you in advance.

    the bowl in the first picture and the two vases in the third picture are NOT fenton. the were made by Anchor Hocking Glass Co. not worth very much because they are so common. the bowl in pic one and the two vases in pic three are worth about $5.00 a piece for a total of $15 on those 3 pieces. now to the item in the center picture. it is definetly made by Fenton. it is done in the french opal hobnail pattern and is meant to be a puff box for a vanity set. it is missing its hobnail cover/lid. this was originally sold in the 1940's-early 50's in a set that included the box with the cover, and two purfume bottles done in the same pattern with stoppers. a complete puff box in this color is worth about $50. but since the box you have is missing its lid its worth between $5-10. collectors are really looking for ones with the lid. thanks for sharing!

    Thank you for explaining, very much appreciate your thoughts and comments. Since I just started doing research on this glassware I ran across other sites that indicated Fenton and my pieces matched so I just assumed they were Fenton, but the ones I put on this site I wasn't able to find. Again, thank you so much.
