- re your question:
you mention the original Northwood mould was passed on to Dugan, so that would mean the ruffled edge?
The shape that is shown in the early ad for the#562 is a rose bowl (cupped in). It has a scalloped top edge - this would have been made by the top ring (part of the mould/plunger). The item that came hot from the mould could have been shaped in various ways, which would include ruffling or tight candy ribbon crimping (as shown on Terry's gorgeous peach opal example). It could have been cupped in, flared out etc. too.Terry

- the relationships between the Carnival Glass makers (like so many other glass makers) are fascinating. Here's a few others. Fenton and Imperial were linked by marriage. Fenton and Millersburg were linked directly (John Fenton started the Millersburg glass works).And for anyone interested
