The vase you have pictured on your website

http://www.pressglas-pavillon.de/vasen/02559.jpg

This Fenton Turquoise Pastel Hobnail made from 1955-58.   If you state the height, then I can provide the ware number.  It should be either 4.5 inches or 8 inches.

I was looking on your site for a pink vase I bought this week and ran across the Fenton fan vase unidentified.

Hi Pamela -

No, Fentoon hobnails are round and pointy  :lol:

Here is a cruet in turquoise hobnail for comparison

The first book I looked in must have a typo.  When you said yours was 4" tall, I looked in some of my older Fenton reference books and they list ware no. 3953 as a 4" footed fan vase.  That is the piece that you have.
