Lustre Corn, Dugan

Lustre Corn was first produced around 1905 by Dugan in flint (white), green, blue, and canary (yellow) opalescent. Marion Hartung named the pattern Corn Vase in her "Opalescent Pattern Glass" book. The tops on all the old examples extend into two long points. It was reproduced by L. G. Wright sometime after 1950. The repros have a top that's straight across. There are probably other differences as well, but the top provides the easiest differentiation. This marigold example is the only iridized example known. It sold in 2010 for $6,000 and again in 2018 for $11,000.

I've seen several of the Lustre Corn vases at the left, listed as French Opal, sell recently. Apparently nobody thinks much of them as they never sell for much.
