|Holly and Poinsettia|
|Whether its a ruffled bowl or a dome-footed compote, it's a very unusual piece. I originally photographed it at the 1993 American Carnival Glass Association convention; Titus Hartley had found it at a nearby shop. John Britt, in writing about it later, named it for the floral elements around the exterior. Nobody knows who the maker might have been, but a guess is Dugan as it has the dome foot and a general Dugan "feel." It also looks a little like a smaller brother to the Christmas Compote.
In 2019, another of these in marigold sold for $525. It was from the Leonard collection.
|In 2005, Michael Samuels sent me this photo of a plate flattened from the bowl. He had found it at an auction earlier in the year.|
