    I had seen this dish at Salvation when I picked up the Viking Amethyst bowl I posted the other day. I went back yesterday and couldn't find it. Today for their "Black Friday" sale the whole store was 50% off. So I looked around and there it was on the top shelf. Someone must have put it back after I left. These are often confused with being Viking's work but they are actually from Duncan Miller who ended production in 1955. Kovel's online had a nice pattern-price guide so I was able to ID it. They came in a variety of colors and sizes. This one is crystal but others had green, blue, and ruby colored dishes but the swan's neck is always done in crystal. This is an 8" Bon Bon dish from their "Pall Mall "line. Wasn't that a cigarette ?? I think my Mom smoked those. -Mike-

    Duncan & Miller is a term used by collectors when referring to glass made by the George A. Duncan and Sons Company or the Duncan and Miller Glass Company. These companies worked from 1893 to 1955, when the use of the name Duncan was discontinued and the firm became part of the United States Glass Company. Duncan & Miller pieces were often colored blue, chartreuse, or pink and blue opalescent. Early patterns may be listed under Pressed Glass.
