Caroline, Dugan

The interior smooth rayed effect (40 rays) on Caroline pieces is quite distinctive. The exterior has six open flowers, each with a leaf; six eight-point stars, each set within an ellipse, and a four-sided, shield-like figure into which each star-and-ellipse motif has been placed. On the underside of the platform base are a 10-point star, 10 tiny teardrops each set within a ray of the star, and a small "bullet" placed dead center. Bowls are found in a wide variety of shapes: crimped, ruffled, three-in-one, two sides up, one side up (hand grip), tricorner, and square. The shape seems to make little difference in the value, however.
