MY AUCTIONS ARE ALWAYS NO RESERVE AUCTIONS, HAVE BEEN FOR YEARS, THE WAY AUCTIONS SHOULD BE. SO PLEASE ENJOY AND HAVE FUN WITH THEM! This is a SCARCE Antique Dugan SIX PETALS Collar Based 3 in 1 Edge Deep Ruffled Bowl made in the early 1900's.
The base glass color is highly prized DARK ELECTRIC PURPLE! There is NO makers mark! Here is a tough piece to find. It features vivid ELECTRIC Blue and Purple throughout the center and pattern details with Ultra Rich Rainbow Multi-Color throughout the elegant edge treatment.
This does nothing but enhance the eye catching display qualities. The entire piece exhibits a velvet like sheen in natural light... A superb luster giving the piece exquisite visual beauty. Awesome shelf presence in terms of its sheer scarcity and striking iridescent excellence! Please see the photographs and enjoy...
I have showed as many angles and iridescent features as I can cram into 12 photographs. Dark areas in the photographs are shadows only. If you enjoy owning those pieces that stand out in a crowd and get noticed...Ones that few others have... Here is a Super Rich, Gorgeous example, in DARK PURPLE base glass, that exhibits PREMIUM visual qualities. Look it over and give it serious consideration. There are NO makers marking whatsoever. It is antique Dugan at its VERY, VERY finest.
Every bit as Ultra Rich and Visually Striking as the photos show and then some. My Photos are taken outside in natural indirect sunlight.I never use a flash or props. I never enhance photos, never have, never will. I aim to show you the best iridescent color the piece offers. If the piece looks awesome in the photos... What you see is what you will get! The piece is 7 1/2 inches wide at the widest point.
It is 3 inches tall at the tallest point. There are NO CRACKS or REPAIRS on this ELUSIVE, Visually Striking Antique Dugan 3 in 1 Edge Deep Ruffled Bowl. A Spectacular example of this fine antique glass! THE BASE: The mold seams on the base are nice and smooth.
I can make out just very slight shelf wear on the bottom of the base which is very common for this antique glass... Certainly nothing uncommon on this elusive beauty. PHOTO 10 shows that there is a very small, very shallow flake on the bottom of the base edge, show very clearly for you next to the end of a ball point pen for easy reference to any ball point pen in your home.You can clearly see how tiny and insignificant it is... Completely insignificant in my opinion, on a truly scarce piece with stunning iridescent presence that the photographs clearly show, in total, has been superbly taken care of over the last 100 years. It sits flat and level on a flat surface. I can't make out any wear which is extraordinary for this pattern, shape and indeed this antique glass in general. The iridescence throughout the entire interior, from the deep center out to the elegant edge treatment. Ultra Rich Electric Blues and Purples give it dynamic visual appeal as natural light strikes the display surface at any angle... Electric even from across a room! Additionally it exhibits sharp "STRETCH EFFECTS" all the way around the center further enhancing an already PREMIUM visual package.
The shelf presence is absolutely stunning! THE EXTERIOR: I can't make out any wear on the exterior of this beauty at all which, again, is extraordinary. THE EDGE: The Edge Treatment on the piece is very well done.It is uniform all the way around, shows excellent balance for these. You can clearly see in the close up photographs that this stunning piece has been well cared for during the last 100 years... Kept as a show case piece for certain in my opinion. You will be hard pressed to find another for sale at all, let along one with iridescence this Fabulous in this kind of condition. An Elusive, Visually Striking piece of antique Dugan and a superb example of this century old glass. That is all I can find on this Scarce, Absolutely Beautiful Antique Dugan 3 in 1 Edge Deep Ruffled Bowl. An impressive example of this elegant pattern, very difficult to obtain shape and base glass color. These are darn tough to come by and the elegant edge treatment along with the spectacular iridescent features makes it a grand piece on display. Certainly a piece that stands out in a crowd and gets noticed!
A Magnificent DARK PURPLE specimen in every regard. If you love collecting those pieces that few others have... And have been looking for a Top Notch example... Here is an opportunity at a Gem Dandy.
The piece has exquisite shelf presence in every regard. A piece that will add tremendous eye appeal and interest to your display as well as superb dollar value.
It is every bit as eye catching and gorgeous as it looks and then some! I fully intend it to be that way, no glitz and glamour. I find it completely fascinating. There is nothing else like it in the world of antiques... The historical pieces I sell are part of our history, as a country, and made right here in the good ole' USA unless I state otherwise.
They represent a time when America made things, great things... Before it was popular to sell this country out! The photographs say it all!
Nothing else needs to be done or said. I do my best to point out damage or wear issues with the pieces I offer. True antique glass always has some manufacturing marks.
It was made a century ago and mass produced... Well before quality was an idea.Well before Cell Phones, Computers or any technology at all. It is hard for people to comprehend that today, but it is fact. The working conditions were unbearable by today's standards, yet the hard working American's of this era produced some of the most amazing items ever made. Manufacturing marks within the glass are part of the charm of this period in time. If there is a manufacturing mark that is out of the ordinary... Such as excessive, contained, bubbles throughout the glass or a manufacturing heat check... Normal manufacturing marks such as straw marks, stretch marks, enclosed bubbles, light tool marks, though, will not be mentioned and should certainly be anticipated. Look over the many photos provided. If typical manufacturing marks bother you... Please ask questions up front! I will readily answer questions as diligently as I can. It will further your appreciation and hone your interest. I highly recommend David Doty's Carnival Glass Website. I also find his Field Guides extremely helpful if you can find them, there are several. They are the best guide to learning patterns, especially the 2000 updated version. I also recommend Edwards and Carwile's Carnival Glass Encyclopedia... There are several editions published.
They cover the widest array of patterns of any guide I have seen and the text is excellent. There are other very worthy materials out there that will help you learn and grow, as well as numerous clubs and organizations. I use premium ONE INCH bubble wrap (not the cheap 1/4 inch) and foam peanuts to package the pieces exclusively. I take great pride in packaging these wonderful pieces of history VERY well... Like they deserve to be packaged and I like them packaged for me.
I never know how an item will sell. My goal, however, is to NEVER have a damaged piece of glass... My feedback comments prove my diligence in that regard. Running No Reserve Auctions do not always allow me to do that... For repeat buyers I certainly will!
I don't advertise it... I just do it when I send the invoice.
It is my way of saying THANK YOU! I run 7 to 10 day auctions with plenty of photos, text and lots of time for questions if needed.
