Fenton Hobnail

In the early 1900's, brothers Frank L. Fenton and John W. Fenton started up the Fenton Art Glass Company. In the 1930's, they began creating glass products with a hobnail pattern. These beautiful pieces of artwork had a very unique look to them.

Fenton Hobnail patterns are covered in a pattern of bumps characteristic of the thick nails heads used in workmen boots. This pattern of bumps completely covered the items and when first introduced was available in green, cranberry, and clear.
