Very Unique Dreamsicle of a Hen on Nest! Vibrant Orange mixed with White Milk Glass, together to make this beautiful Slag Glass Hen on Nest.
This item is a bit larger than the standard beaded edge HON. This Hen's head turns to the left, and she has a very prominent Split Tail that has a scallop with the feathers. The base has a beautiful swirl, with a basket weave pattern near the bottom, transitioning to X crisscross or diamond weave in the middle and a twist on the edge.
The base has a wide, flat rim where it closes to the top. The eyes are bulging with striations around the shape of the eye. The beak is pointed with small ribs in the direction of the point.The bottom has a rounded edge to an oval shape with a pressed circle in the center. There are no identification marks. This item has no iridescence.
The glass is opaque, but there are places where the orange glass has clarity and depth, creating a really interesting item! It is possible, due to the color, that this item is from the 70s. There are 3 very small chips worth mentioning and noted in photographs. Two on the twisted edge of the lower portion and one along the edge of the top portion. All three chips are very small and do not affect the overall beauty of the piece.The Base measures 2.25" high, 7.25" at the longest measurement, and just under 6 at the widest measurement. The Top measures just under 4" high at the tail, 7" at the longest measurement, and just under 5 at the widest measurement. Complete item is 6 tall. Please look closely at all photographs for complete information.
The orange color is NOT amber, this is Vibrant Orange. This item GLOWS in the Blacklight - UV Reactive - See pictures. A lovely RED glow that is just so trippy and beautiful!Tags: Hen on Nest HON Slag Milk Glass Orange White Chicken Split Tail Head Turned Basket Weave Candy Nut Dish Glass Container Shirley LE Smith Kanawha Imperial Westmoreland Indiana Fostoria Kanawha.
