First Quality Fenton 5" Hen on Nest #5186 dishes produced during
the 1980s should be marked with Fenton's Embedded Logo and the
Number "8" Decade Indicator on the underside of the Base. Some
Hen tops are also marked on the inside, although these logos can
be difficult to read-and even more difficult to photograph!

The 5" Fenton Hen on Nest dishes shown in this
section are marked with the logo shown above. A
few exceptions to this include a few Milk Glass Hen
on Nest dishes manufactured during the first years
they were made.
There is no number, or Decade Indicator,
embedded with this logo. Fenton's Decade
Indicators were not introduced until 1980, when a
tiny number 8 was added to the logo.
Fenton 5" Hen on Nest #5186-the 1980's Decade The newly
introduced Decade Indicator embedded with the logo, the tiny
number used with the embedded logo to show during what decade
the item was made. The Decade Indicator "8" is for items made
during the 1980's.

Shown to the left is a close-up of the  Fenton Logo used
during the 1970's on the underside of the 5" hen on nest's
unique, arched base. Below is a photo of the actual logo on a
Fenton 5" Carnival Hen on Nest, ware #5185 CN, YOP:
1970-1972. Although some Fenton #5186 CN hen on nest
dishes were marked, those made before 1972 were not.

NOTE: Although similar to cobalt, Blue Royale,
shown above, is not the same hue of blue cobalt is.
We personally find collecting Hen on Nest dishes in
Slag, a swirled glass mix of more than one color, and
those that are two-toned, having a head and neck of
one color with the rest of the body & base being
another color. There truly are no two alike. We've
purchased duplicate slag and hens with colored
heads to "upgrade" our collection.
