When the Dugan Glass Company did dark, especially purple, carnival glass, it was almost always very pretty. This Apple Blossom Twigs ruffled bowl is purple and has blue and gold iridescence which many people like. The only shapes known in this pattern are bowls with various shaping and plates. Some pieces have the smooth edge like this one, but others have a sawtooth or fluted edge. Some pieces also have a plain back (like this one) and others have a basketweave back. … See MoreSee Less

None of this brocaded glass is easy to find in carnival glass. … See MoreSee Less
These two little Northwood Flute sherbets are affordable, as well as having beautiful iridescence. The amethyst one on the left is the usual shaping, but someone decided that the green one on the right needed a little extra shaping, so it was ruffled. They used a wooden paddle while the glass was still malleable to ruffle it. It probably took them much less than a minute to do the six ruffles.
Pardon the leaning in the photo. They do really stand straight. … See MoreSee Less
