Milk Glass

Gorgeous Fenton Milk Glass Hobnail Collection
I just received my final boxes of beautiful vintage Fenton milk glass hobnail, including some very rare pieces!

Very rare Boxtle in front!
 The Fenton "Boxtle" is one of my favorites! So unique!

 I just love milk glass! So simple, classic, yet elegant!

This collection all started from a lovely lady, named Marybeth, who contacted me through my Etsy shop "MyMilkGlassShop".

She told me about her Mom, Cathy's, large Fenton milk glass collection, and she was ready to downsize.

Since that encounter, I have met with John (Cathy's son), at the Promenade in Westlake (where I meet all of my local customers). I always joked that it seemed like an illegal drug exchange!  Well, milk glass is my drug of choice!

I am not sure how many times we've met to get the beautiful Fenton pieces, but Cathy did number every box, and the lost box was numbered 40!

Cathy was wonderful at listing everything in each box
 You could tell that Cathy new her Fenton (and she loved it)!  She gave me fair prices on everything, so that I could still make a profit.  I am grateful to Cathy and her family!  I have already found appreciative homes for some of Cathy's collection, and will continue listing on of these lovelies, and think of her!
