What a nice little whimseyed piece of carnival glass. This is the Heavy Iris tumbler that was pulled into a JIP (jack-in-the-pulpit) hat shape at the time of making. This was made by the Dugan Glass Company in the early 1900’s. Besides this hat shape and the tumbler there is also a tankard style water pitcher. These JIP hats have sold in marigold and white. Do you have an old purple one? If so, please let me know. They are nice pieces to add to your collection. … See MoreSee Less

This has pretty nice iridescence that is picked up in all the nooks and crannies of the pattern, Inverted Feather. There are quite a number of other shapes known in this pattern, but much harder to find. You could make a collection inside a collection. … See MoreSee Less
