    This vase came up for auction recently. It was listed as Loetz "style", and of course I knew it wasn't Loetz, but I loved it and figured that if I can get it for the opening bid great, if not... oh well. Later that day, I was surprised to find an email message informing me that I had won it. I had no idea who the maker was, but thought it looked like a nice piece of glass. It turns out it was made by Dugan (a maker I know nothing about) circa 1900's. It has a textured, silver and green crushed glass surface and stands 6 1/4 " h. Loumanal posted it's red counterpart some months back I've seen different names for their vases such as "Venetian" and "Japanese", but have no idea what this one is. Any information you can provide would be appreciated. Thanks to Deb for help with the I.D.

      Your vase is lovely and great identification research. I know nothing about glass but here is a comprehensive article, "Dugan Art Glass," by Alfredo Villanueva Collado, PhD, and Nancy Krupp, from David Doty's website:

      A correct reference to the Dugan book by William Heacock et al., from the Corning Museum of Glass:

      A similar vase that cites the vase is shown in "Dugan / Diamond by Heackco [sic], Measell & Wiggins - pages 50 & 51."

      More information on the Dugan Glass Company, Indiana, courtesy of Google books:

      Thanks, sean. More on Dugan and comparing Dugan to Czech glass, from what I think is the site written by CW's "alfredo" (sorry if I am incorrect; I don't look at glass often, may be confused, and I certainly want to provide correct credit).

      Your very welcome and yes you do have it right I believe it was Alfredo!!
