More about this item
This Dugan Carnival Glass Wreathed Cherry 7 piece water set dates to about 1920 and includes one pitcher and 6 tumblers as shown in the images. The set has been carefully inspected - the pitcher and 5 tumblers are in excellent, original condition with no damage. The 6th tumbler has 1 small chip at its base, please see images for details. The handle of the pitcher is not cracked, the small fissures are the result of air being trapped in the mold as the molten glass is poured in. The air that cannot escape the mold expands to displace the molten glass creating folds and small fissures that may look like damage to those unfamiliar with antique pressed glass. The pitcher measures just under 9" tall and 7 5/8" wide when measured handle to spout. The tumblers are 4" tall and 3" wide. The shipping weight for this set is 8 pounds well packed.
