Bright blue lidded pot with bumps all over

This one makes me think it may be American, but I'm not certain. Does anyone recognise it please? Possibly part of a trinket set or a standalone powder pot or not? Pics show inside as well as finial closeup.

I have a small Fenton Hobnail vase a bit like your lidded pot Anne - but what I know about American glass can be written on the head of a pin so I wouldn't be surprised to be laughed at by the American collectors for having said that!

Thanks Pip, that mirrors my own thoughts.  Maybe one of the US members can add more - I'm sure they'll not laugh, but if they do it'll be at both of us.   :thup:

Did you manage to find this in a Fenton book please Michelle? 

If not Fenton, can anyone suggest a possible maker please?

Anne, Fenton glass is not my bag at all, but for what it's worth - Fenton's hobs on their hobnail pieces are more "pointy" than the ones on your pretty jar. Other makers did Hobnail patterns - Duncan and Miller, Anchor Hocking, as well as some English companies.

Check out the hobs on this piece to see what I mean.

I may be all wet, since I don't often pick up Fenton, but I'm sure another US glassie will be along who knows more.

Pamela
Die Erfahrung lehrt, dass, wer auf irgendeinem Gebiet zu sammeln anfängt, eine Wandlung in seiner Seele anheben spürt. Er wird ein freudiger Mensch, den eine tiefere Teilnahme erfüllt, und ein offeneres Verständnis für die Dinge dieser Welt bewegt seine Seele.
Experience teaches that anyone who begins to collect in any field can feel a change in his soul. He becomes a joyful man filled with a deeper empathy, and a more open understanding moves his soul.
Alfred Lichtwark (1852-1914)

Kelli, thanks for that pointer about pointy hobnails, something I wasn't aware of. I'll try and check out more options as you suggest too. :)

Pamela, yours is another mystery?  Hmmm...

Michelle, thanks for checking for me, this will remain a mystery for now until we find out whodunnit.

If anyone has any other thoughts on these I'd love to hear them, thanks!
