Dugan Brooklyn Bridge carnival glass bowls are collectible items of carnival glass, produced in the US by the Dugan Glass Company between 1904 and 1931.

 

Antique or vintage?

Glassware produced more than 100 years ago is classed as “antique” according to the 1930 Smoot-Hawley Tariff Act’s definition.

“Vintage” refers to pieces manufactured within the last 100 years and can include items made as recently as the 1980s.

Brooklyn Bridge pattern

The Dugan Brooklyn Bridge pattern can only be found on bowls and only in marigold.

Featuring an airship floating above the bridge, two versions exist: one includes the words “Brooklyn Bridge”, the other does not.

The unlettered versions are particularly rare and sought-after. Some commentators believe that they were the original version, with the description added later when it transpired that prospective buyers did not recognise the edifice.

How much are Dugan Brooklyn Bridge carnival glass Punch Sets worth?

Lettered versions can sell for between $80 and $300. The more scarce and collectible unlettered variant can achieve between $1,400 and $2,300 at auction.
