The Dugan Glass Co of Indiana, PA began operations in 1905; founded by Thomas Dugan. The company only existed for about eight years, subsequently closing in 1913. Prior to their demise, however, the company quickly became known for producing some very fine glass including carnival glass. Dugan produced a number of carnival glass patterns including this example, Apple Blossom twigs. This line was produced in both bowls and plates with two distinct edges, sawtooth and smooth. These examples came in a variety of base colored glass with beautiful iridescence applied to the surface. This striking example would be considered a low ruffled bowl with a sawtooth edge. The center sports four twigs with leaves surrounding a single apple blossom bloom. On the backside is an attractive basket weave pattern, a distinctive design only know for Dugan glass. When held in bright light, the base color appears to be a light purple/lavender hue with a tinge of amber coloring. The bowl measures 9” across at the widest and sets 2” high when lying flat. Thorough examination reveals no chips, cracks, damage or repairs. I see no wear or damage to the iridescence on the front nor back sides. A somewhat tough pattern to locate today, this fine example is ready for any carnival glass collection. I provided a number of pictures under different light exposures in order to capture a true visual of this wonderful item.
