Dugan Raindrops Pattern Peach Opalescent Carnival Glass Bowl - 9" ca 1904-1913

This is another favorite of ours. It was made by the Dugan Glass Company, which operated only between 1904 and 1913 under that name. The company was run by Thomas and Alfred Dugan, and their plant was in Indiana. Later, after the Dugans left, it became the Diamond Company. This pattern however does date back to that earlier period when some truly beautiful glass was produced by Dugan Glass in that Indiana facility.

The pattern is named Raindrops, and our research tells us that this pattern is "scarce in any color". This bowl is in a most elegant Peach Opalescent color with the Iridescent interior of the Carnival Glass pieces. The exterior pattern is known as Keyhole and is set off beautifully by the opalescence of the outer glass.

This piece measures 9" in diameter by 3-1/2" high, with what is referred to as a dome base. The edge shaping is called a three-in-one edge as it features a ruffled edge with sections of three smaller ruffles incorporated into the shaping. The opalescent glass enhances this elegant edge design as well. I find photographing carnival glass a real challenge, and the photos do not do this piece justice. It has a striking, but subtle coloring that is delightful to see. This bowl is an excellent example of Dugan's quality glassware.

This bowl is in exceptionally nice condition with no damage or signs of wear that I can find. Once again, I am amazed that an approximately one hundred year old piece can survive in such lovely condition.
