This is an Heavy Iris purple pitcher made by the Dugan Glass Company early in the 1900’s. If you haven’t seen one of these pitchers in any color, you will be surprised at the way it is made. It has a blown out pattern. All those flowers and leaves are hollow on the inside. Just imagine how hard it would be to remove from the mold! They aren’t found in too many colors – marigold, purple, and white. A really rare peach opal one would really be a find – a couple are known.

Share your photos of pitchers or peach opal pieces in the comment section below our International Carnival Glass Association Facebook page. We enjoy seeing all your "pretties" as an aunt of mine used to say. See MoreSee Less

Do you have a piece of purple carnival glass that you think is especially pretty? Would you share it by putting it in the comment section here beneath our ICGA Facebook page, please? We would really enjoy being flooded with beautiful glass.

This is a Dugan Garden Path large bowl in purple. I think it is quite pretty myself. It was made in the early 1900’s. See MoreSee Less

One of Imperial’s most popular patterns was their Homestead plate. These plates can be marked with a NuArt signature on the lower right edge. Some of the plates are unmarked. The NuArt signature adds value to the plates, but the unmarked are just as pretty as the marked ones.

These have been reproduced, so you need to check the back. If you don’t see ribs on the back, it is a more recent piece. If you don’t mind buying newer glass, the more recent ones are usually quite affordable and very pretty. .

Please share your Homestead plates, or any Imperial Glass plate, in our comment section under this posting on the International Carnival Glass Association Facebook page. We love to see pretty glass. See MoreSee Less
