Someone told me these are Fenton Glass items, but there are no markings and I have not found them anywhere. These were in my Aunt's estate along with many other glassware items I need identified.
Any help would be great.

Little vase is 3-3/4" tall with clear glass on bottom and milky white on top - hobnail design.
Heart shaped candy dish? with handle on the top. Milky white edges and clear glass with hobnail throughout.

Mystery Solved

    these do look like Fenton and the crystal with the 'white' highlights is called opalescent; and you are correct in calling them hobnail. The vase would be a Fenton Opalescent Hobnail bud vase. The other dish is possibly called a candy dish or nappy.

    i have a huge collection of fenton hobnail and your little vase is fenton french opalescent hobnail and is known as a mini vase or hatpin vase. it is a nice item and worth about $15 in perfect condition. the heart nappy dish is NOT fenton hobnail....it is anchor hocking and the pattern is called moonstone....it is worth about $10. hope that helps, thanks for sharing!
