Question: How do you date Fenton Glass?

Does Fenton glass have any value?

A Fenton hobnail 4 1/2-inch vase can go for $15 to $50. The older it is, the higher in cost. Opalescent or iridescent glass can be worth more. Pre-1958 Fenton milk glass is said to be easily distinguishable because it is less dense, less opaque, than their milk glass made from 1958 onwards.

How can you tell if glass is Fenton?

Sometimes not enough air pressure causes the logo to be faint in the glass. Again look very closely for a light oval mark. The key to identifying if an item is Fenton is the pattern and the basic mould shape. There are many great books on Fenton available that show patterns.

Is Fenton glass a good investment?

Fenton glass is highly valuable when it is in mint condition, is from a limited line or was manufactured before the 1950s. According to Fentons latest catalog, many new glass pieces have a retail price of under $100, making it easy to collect new pieces as they are released. Older pieces can be worth more.

How can you tell vintage Fenton glass?

Look for a Fenton tag (used before 1970), look for the Fenton mark (“Fenton” in an oval), look for “F” in an oval, indicating another companys mold was used (1983+). (See below for more info on marks.)
