If you want Xmas all year round, you need only to place a permanent display of these small gems against a window (include the blues).

1. Pompeian green. Notice the tooling, so characteristic of Art Nouveau's organic forms. They also respond to Christopher Dresser's concept that glass need not be perfect, but should show the process by which it was made.

2. Pompeian purple. Notice the pillow vase on the extreme right.

3. Pompeian red. Though shapes appear in several colors, each color has distinctive shapes as well. For example, I have only been able to find the bowl on the left in red.

An interesting note: at the time I did a presentation on Dugan for the Westchester Glass Club, I was admiringly told that the shapes resembled American Art Pottery, particularly George Ohr!

    The one on the left looks extremely Bohemian, and it's incredible! Almost PK with the spiky tips, Loetz-ish too of course. The green with white-frit is gorgeous.

    The spiky tips are practically a Czech glass trademark, used by all four major glasshouses and many minor ones. But I do not recall any Steuben, Tiffany or even Imperial with that feature.
