Along with the Moonstone piece are a dozen Fenton French Opalescent Hobnail glass pieces including six Tumblers, an Individual Sugar, Creamer and Mustard Pot with original Spoon. In the back center is a Fenton double crimped No 389 low Nappy bowl and at left a pair of individual sized Salt and Pepper Shakers with chrome tops(see condition notes for more detail). The majority of the Fenton pieces are from Fentons No 389 line produced during the 1940s. All thirteen pieces for one offer, offered at ! FRENCH OPALESCENT HOBNAIL: Fenton introduced French Opalescent Hobnail (FO) into the line in 1940. The wide range line continued production into the mid-1950s when the majority of the line was discontinued.
