Dugan - Part 5
DUGAN - Part 5
FIVE HEARTS: This pattern is among the most scarce Dugan examples, indicating a brief production run. Colors of marigold, amethyst and peach opalescent place it in the realm of Dugan production, but no ads for the pattern appear in the wholesale catalogs we have seen. 8-9 round bowls are dome-footed and found in the three colors mentioned above.
A dome-footed rose bowl is known in peach opalescent and marigold. There are fewer than half-dozen confirmed.
The deep, flared Five Hearts bowl, known in marigold has been classified as a whimsey, but in broader terms, it could be called a compote.
RAINDROPS: Black amethyst or oxblood examples are found in this pattern which was introduced in March of 1910. 8-9 dome footed bowls in very tightly crimped rose-bowl-type bowls, widely flared and those in banana shape are to be found. Another striking variation is that some examples offer a brilliant electric iridescence, while others carry a soft/satin finish. The exterior pattern is called Keyhole, which is a carry-over from use during the opalescent period prior to carnival glass. Amethyst, oxblood and peach opalescent are standard colors for whatever shape is found in Raindrops pattern.
ROUNDUP 9 plate in amethyst.
ROUNDUP: This is another scarce pattern. Possibly the mold was destroyed in the 1912 fire, for there is no indication that production extended into the Diamond years.
Ruffled bowls, 8-9 in size are known in marigold, amethyst, peach opalescent, oxblood, white, and cobalt blue Three-and-one edge bowls 8-9can be found in marigold, amethyst, peach opalescent, oxblood and white. Low ice cream bowls, 8-9 in marigold, amethyst, peach opalescent, oxblood, white, and lavender, with flat 9 plates the most difficult to locate, are known in marigold, amethyst, peach opalescent, cobalt blue, oxblood, and white. One decorated peach opalescent plate is confirmed.
SKI-STAR: Wholesale catalogs of the 1910-1911 period primarily offered peach opalescent examples of this pattern, but disappeared from such advertising venues by 1912, leading to the belief that the bulk of the molds for this popular pattern were lost in the 1912 fire. Opalescent production as early as 1907 utilized many shapes. In its brief life during the carnival era, production was fairly prolific, with quite a variation of shapes to offer. The 10-11 ruffled bowl and matching 5-6 ruffled sauce in marigold, amethyst, peach opalescent, both a crimped and a triangular 5-6 bowl in amethyst and peach opalescent, a 6 crimped plate in peach opal, a dome-footed and banana bowl in 9 size are seen in amethyst and peach opal are known. Additionally, a dome-footed handgrip plate, 9 in size is found in amethyst and peach opalescent. A dome-footed rose bowl in peach opalescent, along with a large and small size handled basket in peach opalescent cover the scope of offerings. (Those handles are clear glass.) The large basket appears in some Butler Brothers wholesale catalogs, indicating a production item, but the smaller basket may have been a whimsey item. Ski-Star examples offer the Compass exterior pattern.
WREATHED CHERRY: These oval berry sets are known in marigold, amethyst, white, peach opalescent, cobalt blue and oxblood. Some collectors call this oval shape a banana bowl. Blue examples in this pattern are extremely rare. Amethyst, oxblood and white are found more often than marigold. Peach opalescent bowls are scarce! Table sets, water sets and the toothpick holder have never been found in peach opalescent or cobalt blue! An unanswered question is: Why are the small bowls so much more scarce than large ones, in any of the known colors?
This is a good place to state that the (old) toothpick in this pattern was only produced in amethyst. St. Clair reproduced the toothpick in the late 1960s, (primarily in cobalt blue). They were not trademarked. Since the 1960s, several iridescent and non-iridescent colors have been reproduced.
