The pattern is named after the twig-like branches making up the short stem (continuing up the side). The top of the base has a bark-like texture. There are two distinct sizes, the short vases between 3 1/2″ and 5″ are much more collectible, the tall are 7″ and above. It's believed that Dugan made the short ones between 1909-1913, after the business was purchased by Diamond, they made the taller ones from 1916-1931. A scarce variation is known without the twigs molded into the side.
Terry Crider iridized some of these (and signed them). The opalescent versions are of questionable age.
