We found these in my in-laws cupboard during a house clearance; then they went in our loft! Now we're having a clearance, but i thought they were rather curious and deserved an airing - especially as we are now extending our lounge; they could be given a new lease of life.
I would dearly like to know more about them though, like were they made in England or abroad ( my husbands family used to travel the world in circuses as strong men) and what type and colour are they classed as? How old would they be? They really have a quite attractive aura about them and it is hard to believe that they would have been given as fairground prizes!
Any advise or information eagerly awaited.

    This is Dugan's Pulled Loop vase. It was made in the early 1900's.

    Thanks Glasseye - I've been looking everywhere for similar designs but not found any. Do you know where they would have been made?

    Hello! The Dugan company was in Indiana, Pennsylvania, U.S.A. The Dugan brothers purchased the company in 1904 and ran it until 1913 at which time they sold it and it became the Diamond Glass Company. Hope this helps!!
