Magnificent Antique DUGAN Carnival Glass Centerpiece Punch Bowl Grape Cherries. The outside looks to be grape & cable or grapevine, the inside is another larger fruit I believe cherries or possibly peaches. The glass has a wonderful deep purple iridescent color.
Measures 12 1/2" wide, 5 7/8" tall, base is 3 5/8 wide. It weighs 5 pounds 4 ounces. Not marked but I looked up shape and pattern and found this is certainly genuine Dugan Glass Co. No cracks or chips, fine condition - see detailed photos. I have been now told the pattern is called Many Fruits.
The company was in business from 1905 until 1913. The Dugan glass company was founded by Thomas Dugan, a cousin of Harry Northwood. About 1904 Dugan along with his partner W.
Minnemayer bought the closed Northwood factory in Indiana, PA and opened it as the Dugan glass company. The company continued production after the Dugans left the company and was renamed the Diamond glass company in 1913. The company continued production until a fire destroyed the plant on June 27, 1931. Dugan is best known for peach opalescent, a type of Carnival glass. They produced the most peach opalescent of any of the carnival glass manufacturers.They also produced deep shades of amethyst glass, some so dark they appeared black. They were also known for deep crimped edges. They also produced Iridescent Frit Glass.
The Dugan Pompeian, Venetian, and Japanese glass lines were examples of frit glass. These pieces were rolled in glass frit, which is ground up pieces of glass, and then shaped by hand.
