Hi Brian and All,
Tonight’s pattern is Keyhole. This is seldom seen as a primary pattern (plain interior) and always seems to have a radium pastel marigold iridescence on a three and one shape. I’ve only seen two, but I know there is at least one more “out there”.
Keyhole is the secondary pattern for Raindrops, most often seen in peach opal. Let’s face it, Raindrops is not a “sexy” pattern, unless you find one of the electric purples. In general, you might turn a piece over to check on the amount of opal, on a peach piece. The purples, like a lot of Dugan, aren’t always iridised on the back, so… My peach opal pieces are a tce low bowl or plate (?), apparently a pretty scarce shape, and, a two sides up or banana bowl, both with pretty good opal. The purple bowl is NOT mine. I have to confess to not photographing the back. Sorry.
I have a vague idea of what I might send in tomorrow. One of these days I have a niggling question to ask. Be warned.
Take care All, Ingrid.
