As I have said before, terms like "Pompeian" and "Japanese" were arbitrarily applied to lots being sold by Butler Brothers.

The "Starburst" (pic. 1) might, with little imaginative effort, resemble an embroidered kimono pattern. Other than that, the second vase from left to right, back row, is obviously a sake bottle shape. However, this is one spectacular pattern: cobalt blue glass with gold and white "starbursts". Van Gogh anyone? The vases on the back, corners, show the same shape with and without the "bursts".

Pic. 2: I call this decor "ice blue", for it reminds me of the glassy glitter of shaved ice. This are the largest I have found; the tallest is a full 12". Needless to say, Art Nouveau all the way.

Pic. 3. Pompeian Amber. The tallest is 8" tall.

Pic. 4: A rare example of Vaseline glass with Dugan's signature stripe/frit decor.
