Nice vintage Fenton hobnail opalescent blue pitcher and 6 glass set. The pitcher measures approximately 8 5/8" tall X 7" wide (edge of spout to end of handle) , 4 1/2" diameter at the opening, 4" diameter at the base. It holds about 30 oz. As listed in the description, there is a stress crack that runs from the top down towards the bottom.
As well as a few small hairline striations in the same area along the top where the glass has been molded. When you run your fingers along the crack you cant feel it, so the crack is inside the thick glass. This Piece does hold water and not sure it affects the overall beauty of the piece. The hobnail kind of disguises it.
Please look at the pictures to see these issues. The glasses measure approximately 4" tall , 2 7/8" diameter at the opening, 2 3/8 diameter at the base. They hold approximately 8 oz.
4 of the 6 glasses are perfect, 1 has a very small chip- crack at the opening. (less than 1/4 in length) almost unnoticeable. The last glass of the set has 2 small flea bite chips on the to edge. A 2-3 hair width scratches.
The issues are very minor and hardly noticeable IMO. And don't affect the structural integrity of the 2 effected glasses.
This is a very nice set, it's exactly as I found it at an estate sale in NJ. Although the pitcher does have a crack, I still think you can use this heavy weight pitcher without any restrictions. If you are going to use it purely as decoration, you can easily position the pitcher so the crack will never be seen.IMO, none of these defects take away from the beauty of the work, the amazing colors. Sets like these are not easy to find, relatively rare. This set will stand out in any room and your guest will be quite impressed with this great find. I will happy to send more pictures upon request.
