Controversial discussions have taken place over time, surrounding these vases found in amethyst, blue, green, marigold and white.
When John Lee wrote his article for the December 1997 issue of the San Diego County Carnival Glass Club Newsletter, he did not mention 10 ¾?as a height for the vase. The amethyst example shown beside the taller white vase is one we purchased from a Wroda Auction in May 2012. The 18 1/8?white example was purchased from a Christy Auction in Greenwood, IN  in 2010.
Correspondence from Lee Markley was received as a result of having read John抯 article.
Receipt of the December 1997 Newsletter prompted Frank M. Fenton to respond with more research into the subject, including the detailed mold drawing.
We decided that in correlating all this detailed information for display on the 101 site, many questions could be settled at long last.
You will find more information surrounding this (Hobnail vase) in  Hobnail Variant Vase.  Colors known: amethyst, blue, green, marigold and white. The base is 4 ¼?diameter.  Since John Lee抯 article mentions white as a very scarce element, we checked auction sales in recent years. Dave Doty records a single white sold in 2008 for $140. In 2010, two sold: $60. and $160. A single sale in 2011 brought $120. In March 2006, we paid $187. for  our 18 1/8?white example.
In comparing the iridescence of the shorter vase with the taller versions, the pictures detail the shinier iridescence. The 10 ¾?amethyst vase is a good example of the early Millersburg use of satin finish. Mr. Fenton抯 assessment that the same mold was later used for the Fenton #507 vases indicates logical marketing strategy.

When I say.........

When I say, 揑 am a Christian?/FONT>
I抦 not shouting, 揑抳e been saved!?/FONT>
I抦 whispering, 揑 was lost!
That抯 why I chose this way?

When I say, 揑 am a Christian?/FONT>
I don抰 speak with human pride
I抦 confessing that I stumble -
needing God to be my guide.

When I say, 揑 am a Christian?/FONT>
I抦 not trying to be strong
I抦 professing that I抦 weak
and need His strength to carry on.

When I say, 揑 am a Christian?/FONT>
I抦 not bragging of success
I抦 admitting that I抳e failed
and cannot ever pay the debt.

When I say, 揑 am a Christian?/FONT>
I don抰 think I know it all
I admit to my confusion
calling His name when I start to fall.

When I say, 揑 am a Christian?/FONT>
I抦 not claiming to be perfect
My flaws are far too visible
but God believes I抦 worth it.

When I say, 揑 am a Christian?/FONT>
I still feel the sting of pain
I have my share of heartache
which is why I seek His name.

When I say, 揑 am a Christian?/FONT>
I do not wish to judge
I have no authority
I only know I抦 loved.
