i've never been a huge fan of Fenton glass. my grandma has a few pieces that have been in her collection for FOREVER, so i've always associated that brand as being "old lady-ish". not anymore.
last week my mom and i took a trip to one of our favorite local antique shops. almost as soon as i walked in i saw a blue Fenton hobnail planter. it was pretty much love at first sight. i had never seen one of these in blue, only their lime/jadite color. this color is fantastic - not turquoise, but not royal blue - more of a chalaine. Fenton's beautiful colors seem to forgive their frou-frou shapes.
