The Silver Crest pattern was formed by applying a crystal edge to milk glass pieces Silver Crest was the most popular and longest running Crest pattern that Fenton produced. Fenton introduced Silver Crest into the line in 1943 and it was an instant success. In the 1950's Silver Crest production diminished when producing milk glass Hobnail was the priority. However, during the 1960's there was an renewed interest in Silver Crest. Production peaked in the 1960's and the pattern was discontinued except for a few pieces in 1970, and in 1980 production on the few pieces that were made ceased.
