Dugan Vases - Part 3
DUGAN VASES - Part 3
BIG BASKETWEAVE: This is a case of “which came first, the basket or the squat vase?” In essence, you should be smiling at this point because we all know that the squat vase is truly the mould piece for the “ squat vase.” After emergence from the mould, the flared staunch was achieved with the wooden shaping tool, pulling up the sides slightly to accommodate the applied handle, creating the basket style.
This same basic mould shape, having the crimping tool applied to the edge, created the ruffled shape, used as a small vase, or, as the base for a ruffled Persian Garden fruit bowl, which has the Big Basketweave design on the exterior. This design is also found as the exterior on bowls and plates in the Apple Blossom Twigs, Round-up, and Fanciful patterns.
Vases in the 8”-14” size are, of course, the same base mould shape having been swung to the extended sizes found.
Basket, large - marigold and amethyst, having separately applied clear handle. Amethyst is extremely difficult to locate.
Basket, small - marigold, having a molded handle
Mould-shape or squat vase - 5”- 6” marigold, amethyst, peach opalescent, white, oxblood
Vase, 8” - 14” marigold, amethyst, oxblood, lavender, peach opalescent, cobalt blue, celeste and sapphire tones of blue, ice blue. (Click on ~~ ~~ in our Quick Reference Index to view a sapphire vase.)
Dugan and Diamond Glass companies utilized this mold to the fullest, over a long period of time. The basketweave design is attractive and desirable, with the variety of colors developed over an extended period of production.
LINED LATTICE: Vases having the 9 squared feet are much more difficult to find than those having the 9 rounded toes. Each type offers 9 `flame points' along the top edge. Not easily found in any color, but there may be more white than amethyst. Even marigold is difficult, but not so much as the cobalt vases. Horehound examples are few and far between, but honors must go to the peach opalescent vases. Iridescence is usually profound and bright. Sizes range from 5” to 14” in height. Production likely extended into the Diamond years.
