I am not exactly sure what you are saying about Fenton dealers. Did you find a hobnail epergne at a Fenton dealer and want to know what it is worth? What you have described is called an "epergne". They come with at least one horn and a bowl that holds them. They also come in different sizes. You can tell about what decade it was made in if you can see the Fenton logo on the bottom of the bowl. Anything made in the 1970's will just have the word "Fenton" in an oval if it is one of their moulds. If there is a scrip "F" that would mean the mould originallyl belonged to another glass company and Fenton bought the mould from them when they went out of business. Also, after the 1970's Fenton started putting a number underneath the name to denote the decade it was made in.Here is some of the info I can find on the milk glass hobnail epergne.The value of your 4-piece epergne will depend on the size of it. If it is the mini epergne that was made from 1950 to 1978, that would be the
#3801 MI and the value is $35 to $45. Sorry my book doesn't give me a size.If it is the larger epergne that was made from 1956 until sometime in the 1980's, that would be the 4-piece #3701 MI and the value would be $45 to $50. Sorry my book doesn't give me a size on this one either.If you are going to collect milk glass hobnail, there is a good book out by John Walk at Amazon.com for $19.77. Here is a link to the book. It covers the years 1940 thru 1985. If you are looking to sell the epergne on ebay, beware that hobnail milk glass does not sell well. http://tinyurl.com/yxhpavIs
