Bells and Beads, Dugan

Hartung Book Three: Bells and Beads

This pattern, found only in six to seven-inch ruffled, tricorner and crimped bowls is sometimes referred to as Bellflower--perhaps a better name as the design has small bell-shaped flowers. I have records of only bowls in amethyst/purple and peach opal selling, but Carl O. Burns, in his book on Dugan & Diamond, reports cards trays, compotes, and nappies as well as marigold and oxblood and a very rare green.
