Hobnail Glass

I see them everywhere... I just did not know how to call them. They are beautiful (sometimes not so), colorful "bumpy" textured glasswares... Finally I know their name: Hobnail Glass. It was very popular in the Victorian times, usually in hand blown, translucent colored glass, which is sometimes called "Dew Drop Glass". Lemonade sets with a pitcher and matching glasses were very common at the turn of the century. In 1939 Fenton Art Glass first introduced their hobnail glass and in those early years it was in translucent colors. Milk glass hobnail was introduced by Fenton in 1950, and proved to be one of their most successful products. It kept the company going during the very difficult years when many other glassworks closed down. Just about every Fenton shape has been produced in hobnail milk glass.







I think we had something similar in Eastern Europe, too. Maybe Czech glass companies made them. I have to continue my research on this....:) Until then I just wanted to show you few I like.:)
 
Mindenfele latom ezeket a kis rucskos uvegeket.de nem tudtam,hogy hivjak oket - vegre sikerult kideriteni: Hobnail uveg. Angliaban is az USA-ban is nepszeruek voltak a Viktorianus korban, ekkor tobbnyire az atlatszo, szines uvegek, majd kesobb a Fenton Company feher opal uvegei terjedtek el.
Szerintem Magyarorszagon is voltak hasonloak, talan a hires cseh uveggyarak keszithettek? Majd ennek meg utananezek, addig is szerettem volna nehany szep darabot mutatni Nektek.

Hú, ezek gyönyörűek! A fehérek a kedvenceim. Bevallom, én még nem láttam hasonlóakat. Nálunk van egy cseh üvegremekeket árusító boltocska, jövő héten benézek hozzájuk, hátha... Ha megtudok valamit, jelentkezem:)Szép hétvégét Nektek:)
