|Floral and Grape, Dugan and Fenton|
|Both Dugan and Fenton made very similar patterns that collectors have come to call Floral and Grape. Carnival researchers point to the diagonal lines around the body to tell the difference; Fenton leaning to the right and Dugan to the left. However, it makes little difference in the price as either version will sell for the same--given equal quality.
There is a rare Fenton version without either of the slanted lines. With the tumbler, the bands of lines slant to the right on both versions but on Fenton's the pattern is clear of the mold seams and have no horizontal lines bordering the bands. The photo at left shows the Dugan version. Subtle differences, I know, and it makes little difference to collectors other than those who want both versions. The tumblers were also made into jack-in-the-pulpit whimsies. To see a pitcher that has been whimsied into a vase, click here.
