Have you ever stored away a box and forgotten about it? That is exactly what I did, until yesterday. Inside, my unlabeled box, were these items I have for Show and Tell today.
The vintage cranberry opalescent hobnail art glass vase was made by Fenton. If you are interested in learning more about the American company and the artisans who produce today's glass, click on Fenton Glass. The company has a rich history that continues to thrive today.
Looking at the vase from the top, you can see the beautiful ruffled edge of the design.
"Today, eight Fenton family members work together along with over 100 employees in Williamstown, West Virginia, creating new colors, patterns and handpainted decorations that result in handmade glass artistry that is loved by collectors around the world..", quoted from their website.
The skating boot, with diamond point on the upper top, was also produced by Fenton. I photographed it beside the vase, to show you how small it is. The boot measures 4" tall by 3" long.
The boot sits atop four wheels that appear to be ready "to roll". True for Fenton's workmanship, the details are exquisite.
I guess the only thing left to do, is to find a place to display them....
