FENTON CRANBERRY GLASS Rare Hobnail Squat Jug with Amberina Crimped Handle Circa 1940s
Offering a wonderful piece of HOBNAIL ART GLASS in cranberry. The FENTON ART GLASS COMPANY introduced the hobnail pattern in 1939 and it continued to be their most popular and best selling glass patterns of all times.
The pitcher, called a SQUAT JUG because of its round shape, is beautiful with an applied crimped designed handle. The glass handle has a slight ruby gold tinge, similar to Amberina glass.
The squat jug was popular in several colors of opalescent glass, including cranberry opalescent. This piece is unusual in that it is not opalescent glass as well as the ruby gold handle.
Standing about 5 ½” tall, the piece does not have the Fenton logo mark on the bottom, signifying it is pre-1970. The hobnail squat jug in cranberry was introduced in 1940 and discontinued in 1950.
The piece is in excellent condition and has no chips, cracks or repairs.
Would be a perfect addition to a collector's Fenton or cranberry glass collection. Or imagine it filled with your favorite Sangria recipe!
Fenton Cranberry Glass
Fenton Cranberry pieces contain pure gold. It is the gold that reacts to the extreme heat to form the beautiful cranberry color. All Fenton cranberry glass is blown by mouth and not pressed. In some cases, a piece can take up to 25 glassworkers to produce. The making of cranberry glass is more than the art of blowing glass--the glassworkers must have the knowledge to craft the special gold chloride formula that is added to the molten glass.
