Big Butterfly (or Butterfly)

This is the only known marigold example of this tumbler and is courtesy of the late Cecil Whitley–who also owned one of the four known in a sort of olive green. One of these green tumblers sold in 2007 for $6,000, another in 2010 for $650 and in 2014 another brought $675. The marigold example sold in 2010 for $11,500. What appears to be a matching pitcher is shown, not iridized, in a 1915 US Glass catalog. Above right is the first reported pitcher in the Big Butterfly pattern. It's marigold and sold for $1,200 at the 2014 American Carnival Glass Association convention auction. It would certainly have brought more if not for a crack down the side.
