I have identified this compote as a Dugan Question Mark. It has all three patterns, the question mark inside, the leaf on the outside and the puzzle on the foot. I also know that it is hard to find anything Dugan in green they didn't make much of it. There is no makers mark.

This bowl is usually in carnival glass. So this leads me to a brand new set of questions.

Does anyone know if Dugan Diamond made unirridized glass, would it be more rare then the carnivalized piece, would it be comperable in price, higher or lower. Is it possible that someone has made reproductions of Dugan Question Mark?

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

I"ll check back often to see if there are new postings.

In the meantime, this is a pitcher that I picked up at a yard sale a few weeks back for $1.00, I think it's Blenko. The green one in the middle.

Hi Melanie,

Yes, Dugan made other than iridized glass; actually much, much more "other", and green is not a particularly scarce color for Dugan.  I do know that the Question Marks Compote has been reproduced in opalescent glass, and they are virtually impossible to distinguish from the originals.  Whether the Compote has been reproduced in the green, I do not know.  As to scaracity - the Compote is probably scarcer in the colored glass, but more valuable in carnival.  Why?  Do in large part to the reproductions and, of course, the demand side of the ever present ecconomic principal.  Probably not what you wanted to hear, but I hope this helps a bit anyway.
