Pink Slag small berry bowl made in 1900 by Dugan (pattern was first developed by Northwood). The pattern is called Inverted Fan and Feather , one of the most beautifully designed of Northwood's patterns. This specialized color was only made for about a year, in limited quantity, because it was difficult to get a consistent color. It required gold in the batch formula. This piece is the individual berry bowl, 4.75 inches diameter, 2.5 inches high. Color is stronger at the rim, and there is a fiery opalescence to the piece. Condition is perfect. No chips, no lines, no flaws. The mold work is very crisp. If you collect EAPG in rare colors, this is one of the most desirable patterns. Or if you collect antique milk glass or other opaques and want to add a different color to the collection, this is a good example.
This piece is pictured on the cover of the book "Dugan / Diamond, The Story of Indiana, Pennsylvania, Glass" by Heacock, Measell, and Wiggins.
