The exterior is Blazing HOT ELECTRIC Blue and Purple! The very elegant raised pattern glisten with zest too in natural light. If you have been looking for one of these Elusive Gems, in PURPLE base glass... Take a darn good look here! In terms of its sheer scarcity and pleasing overall visual beauty...The shelf presence is OUTSTANDING! Please take a look at the photographs and enjoy. I have shown you as many angles and iridescent features as I could cram into 12 photographs. Dark areas in the photographs are absolutely shadows only. This is a great opportunity to own a great piece of glass... And it is in excellent shape too! An elusive, exquisite piece of Antique Dugan glass.
There is not makers mark. It is Antique Dugan at i ts finest! It is every bit Rich, Elegant and Attractive as the photos show. My photos are taken outside in natural indirect sunlight.
I never use a flash or props. I never enhance photos, never have, never will. I aim to show you the best iridescent color the piece offers.
If the piece looks awesome in the photos... What you see is what you will get! The piece is 8 3/4 i nches wide at the widest point.It is only 1 3/4 inches tall at the tallest point. There are NO CHIPS, CRACKS or REPAIRS on this ELUSIVE, Lovely Antique Dugan LOW, LOW ICS Bowl or PLATE. A Superb example of this fine antique glass! THE BASE: The mold seams are barely there to the touch... I can't make any slight shelf wear on the bottom of the base which is extraordinary. There is some slight manufacturing roughness on the edge of the base... Just feels slightly rough to the touch. Absolutely nothing for any piece of this Fine Antique Glass. It sits flat and level on a flat surface. THE INTERIOR: I can't make out any wear to the iridescence at all which is awesome for this shape and pattern. It looks as though it was never used for anything but display throughout is long 100 year history. The photographs of the interior clearly show the display surface is in Great shape. The iridescence is quite Rich in nature featuring a Golden overall presentation with Vibrant Blue and Purple highlights around the glistening pattern details. Better than the photographs show. A wonderful piece of Antique Dugan Glass. THE EXTERIOR: I can't make out any wear on the exterior at all which is extraordinary for this elegant shape and pattern. You can easily see the strong iridescent colors are simply INCREDIBLE! Sultry Rich, featuring dynamic ELECTRIC Blue and Purple throughout! It absolutely does nothing but enhance a wonderful overall presentation.
THE EDGE: The piece is well formed in every regard. The top is nicely flared. It stands up nice and straight... The extended teeth around the top edge have all been accounted for.The photographs clearly show, in total, just how well this Strikingly Gorgeous Gem has been so very well taken care of over the last 100 years. It was absolutely kept as a Show Case piece without a doubt. They are very tough to come by, in ELECTRIC BLUE, and especially one in this kind of condition! A Very Elusive, Visually Striking piece of antique Northwood and an classic and classy piece of this century old glass. That is all I can find on this VERY SCARCE, Ultra Rich and Stunningly Gorgeous Antique Northwood Vase. An Amazing example of this ever so elegant and highly prized pattern, shape and very difficult to obtain base glass color! This Incredible Vase attracts LOADS of attention with its PREMIUM, ELECTRIC iridescent characteristics... Talk about making a statement on display!
A Top Notch, High Quality example, in ELECTRIC BLUE base glass, with iridescent properties that are always in high demand and so darn difficult to find! Take a darn good look here and give it serious consideration! It will add Super Sharp visual appeal and interest to your display as well as Fantastic dollar value.
It is every bit as Ultra Rich and Stunningly Beautiful as the photographs show! I fully intend it to be that way, no glitz and glamour. I find it completely fascinating. There is nothing else like it in the world of antiques... The historical pieces I sell are part of our history, as a country, and made right here in the good ole' USA unless I state otherwise.
They represent a time when America made things, great things... Before it was popular to sell this country out! The photographs say it all! Nothing else needs to be done or said. I do my best to point out damage or wear issues with the pieces I offer.
True antique glass always has some manufacturing marks. It was made a century ago and mass produced... Well before quality was an idea.
Well before Cell Phones, Computers or any technology at all. It is hard for people to comprehend that today, but it is fact. The working conditions were unbearable by today's standards, yet the hard working American's of this era produced some of the most amazing items ever made. Manufacturing marks within the glass are part of the charm of this period in time.
If there is a manufacturing mark that is out of the ordinary... Such as excessive, contained, bubbles throughout the glass or a manufacturing heat check... Normal manufacturing marks such as straw marks, stretch marks, enclosed bubbles, light tool marks, though, will not be mentioned and should certainly be anticipated. Look over the many photos provided.
If typical manufacturing marks bother you... Please ask questions up front! I will readily answer questions as diligently as I can.It will further your appreciation and hone your interest. I highly recommend David Doty's Carnival Glass Website. I also find his Field Guides extremely helpful if you can find them, there are several. They are the best guide to learning patterns, especially the 2000 updated version. I also recommend Edwards and Carwile's Carnival Glass Encyclopedia...
There are several editions published. They cover the widest array of patterns of any guide I have seen and the text is excellent.
There are other very worthy materials out there that will help you learn and grow, as well as numerous clubs and organizations. I use premium ONE INCH bubble wrap (not the cheap 1/4 inch) and foam peanuts to package the pieces exclusively. I take great pride in packaging these wonderful pieces of history VERY well... Like they deserve to be packaged and I like them packaged for me. I never know how an item will sell.
My goal, however, is to NEVER have a damaged piece of glass... My feedback comments prove my diligence in that regard. Running No Reserve Auctions do not always allow me to do that...For repeat buyers I certainly will! I don't advertise it... I just do it when I send the invoice. It is my way of saying THANK YOU!
I run 7 to 10 day auctions with plenty of photos, text and lots of time for questions if needed.
