Black Glass Wall Pocket with Bird
« on: March 18, 2006, 10:02:14 AM »
Black glass wall pocket which is 8.25 inches long and 2 inches wide at the top.  It is in excellent condition.  I have not been able to find a maker.  I looked in Toohey's Black Glass 2 (I don't have 1). I also posted this on another board and no one could identify it.  One member said they had one in cobalt blue and thought it was newer.  But they never posted a picture for me to compare.  I do think this is 1920-30s era. It is well made and the mould detail crisp.

Wall Pocket

What kind of bird?

Detail of bird - Woodpecker ?

No chips even on the hanging hole

Hi Connie - it's the Dugan-Diamond "Woodpecker" wall pocket. It's known in marigold Carnival. It is also found in other colors.

However, it has certainly been reproduced - in fact I saw it a year or two back on a repro website. And yes, a cobalt blue was one of the repor'd colors. I'll try and find the link.

Thank you, Glen!  I love Dugan/Diamond Glass. I think it is an over looked and under appreciated glass company.

Absolutely Connie  :lol:

I love Dugan too - they made some amazing Carnival.

I believe that shards of the Woodpecker vase were discovered at the "Helman Dig" and thus the certain attribution to Dugan.

Super piece you have there.
