The Levay Distributing Company / Vaseline Opalescent Hobnail: In 1980 The Levay Distributing Company commissioned Fenton to produce Topaz Opalescent Hobnail for them. Levay called this color Vaseline Opalescent. Pieces offered were a 12" Banana Stand, a 7" Basket, a 10" Crimped Basket, a 9" DC Bowl, a round Butter and Cover, a 4" Candleholder, and a Creamer and Covered Sugar. In 1983 Levay again had pieces made in this color. These included a 7" DC Basket, a small DC Basket, a 9" single crimped Bowl, a 11" DC Footed Bowl, a Candleholder (Cornucopia style), and a Cream and Sugar Set. Levay items are marked with the Fenton backstamp. These items were sold (at this time) exclusively by Levay.  Levay was a small company that sold glass purchased as their own from other glass companies.  Similar in nature to the L.G. Wright company, the Levays made their name well known within the glass world.


Topaz Opalescent Hobnail - Topaz Opalescent Hobnail was introduced into the Fenton line in mid 1941. Production of this color of Hobnail appears to have ended in 1944, but company records from this era are incomplete. In 1959, some pieces of Hobnail were again made in topaz opalescent. Fenton continued to produce this color of Hobnail for their general line until 1962, when it was discontinued.  In 1980 The Levay Distributing Company commissioned Fenton to produce Topaz Opalescent Hobnail for them. Levay called this color Vaseline Opalescent. Pieces offered were a 12" Banana Stand, a 7" Basket, a 10" Crimped Basket, a 9" DC Bowl, a round Butter and Cover, a 4" Candleholder, and a Creamer and Covered Sugar. In 1983 Levay again had pieces made. These included a 7" DC Basket, a small DC Basket, a 9" single crimped Bowl, a 11" DC Footed Bowl, a Candleholder (Cornucopia style), and a Cream and Sugar Set. Levay items are marked with the Fenton backstamp.

In 1993 Fenton made six items in Topaz Opalescent Hobnail as a part of their Historic Collection. This later color was called Gold Pearl. Pieces offered were a Basket with a looped handle, a Cruet and stopper, a 21" Lamp with prisms, a Tumbler, a Water Set, and a 6" Hand Vase.
