This is a fabulous hen on a nest by Fenton. #5182 MY Amethyst With Milk Glass Head, Introduced in January, 1982, it was made for approximately one year.
The condition is excellent, like new, no chips, dings, nicks, cracks or any other issues. The amethyst purple color just pops and the base rings like a bell when tapped. It is marked on the bottom with Fenton in an oval space. The number "8" is not evident in the oval for the 1980's but it likely faded into the mold when manufactured.
The Fenton Fanatics website shows color photographs of both sizes of hens on pages 5 and 11 in the 1982 online catalog supplement. This is the large size. The base is 8-3/4" x 6-3/4". Overall, it measures about 9" long. It is a heavy bird weighing in at 3 lbs. 2 oz.
This hard to find hen would make a great gift.
