Caroline - Dugan
The interior smooth rayed effect on Caroline pieces is quite distinctive. The exterior has small floral elements and lines weaving around the pattern (shown on this rare purple ruffled bowl). The most desirable version of the pattern is the handled baskets, shown above left. Bowls are found in a wide variety of shapes: crimped, ruffled, three-in-one, two sides up, one side up (hand grip), tricorner, and square. The shape seems to make little difference in the value, however. The unusual Caroline bowl on the left is in blue opal and has Dugan's deep 3n1 edging.
