Thomas E Dugan became manager of National Glass in 1899. The Dugan brothers (Thomas and Alfred) operated the plant until 1904 when they became the owners and the Indiana, Pennsylvania plant became Dugan Glass Company. In 1913 the Dugan Brothers left and the name was changed to the Diamond Glass Company which operated until 1931 when the plant was destroyed by fire.
This lovely Dugan/Diamond Carnival footed nut bowl is the "Grape Delight" pattern. The bowl is surrounded by three large clusters of grapes separated by three large leaves and rests on six short feet. The gently scalloped top edge is slightly flared out. There are reproductions on the market but they have a vertical top edge. The iridescence on this piece is fantastic, with dark blue, purple, rose & copper shades all perfectly mixed for a great contrast. The bowl measures 5 1/2" across and 4 1/4" in height. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; near mint.
