THIS IS A RECENT PROBLEM AND LIKELY INVOLVED "COOKIES" ON YOUR DEVICE. This is a SCARCE Antique FOUR FLOWERS VARIANT LOW, LOW Ruffled Bowl or sometimes called a PLATE made in the early 1900's. The Base Glass Color is highly prized ICE GREEN. I emphasize this piece is NOT MARKED. This is NOT a reproduction piece.
Thought to be of European origin, pieces in this very attractive pattern, termed the "VARIANT" are most often seen in this very low bowl or sometimes referred to as a PLATE. If you have ever dreamed of adding one to your collection, a gorgeous one, take a darn good look here! This one is very beautiful with lots of BLUE iridescent highlights giving it pleasing Emerald visual effects. The elegant pattern details works so well with the soft, yet colorful iridescent features making for an eye catching presentation.
The photographs fail to capture the sheer beauty of this Elusive piece. The shelf presence is magnificent in terms of its sheer scarcity and pure visual quality!A tremendous opportunity to add one of these elusive, prized Gems to your collection. The photographs do not do it full justice at all. Please look over them over and enjoy. I have shown you as many angles as I can cram into twelve photographs. Dark areas are shadows only. If you love collecting those pieces that stand out in a crowd, ones that very few others have, here is a beautiful specimen loaded with eye catching visual features.
Look this Jewel over and give it serious consideration. This is a superb opportunity to own a truly elusive, fantastic piece of antique glass. Again there is NO marking whatsoever. It is every bit as elegant and attractive as the photos show and then some.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 9 1/8 inches wide at the widest point.It is 2 inches tall at the tallest point. There are NO CHIPS, CRACKS or REPAIRS on this Elusive, Beautiful Antique Low, Low Ruffled Bowl. A Superb example of this fine antique glass! THE BASE: The mold seams at the base are nice and smooth overall. The base is ground, which is standard for these. I have never seen one where the base wasn't ground in any color. I can make out just very slight shelf wear on the bottom of the base which is very common for this antique glass... Certainly nothing uncommon on this Fine Gem! It sits flat and level on a flat surface. THE INTERIOR: The interior surface is in remarkable shape... I can't make out any wear at all... Looks as though it was never used for anything but display. The iridescence is soft and lovely throughout, pastel in nature, and features lots of BLUE giving the piece very pleasing Emerald visual effects. The shelf presence, in terms of its sheer scarcity and beautiful iridescent qualities is Fantastic! You will be hard pressed to find another for sale with better iridescent splendor in this kind of condition. It is an amazing piece of this fine old glass. THE EXTERIOR : I can't make out any wear around the exterior at all which is exceptional. THE EDGE: The Edge Treatment on the piece is very well done. The close up photographs attest to how well this Visually Pleasing, Classy piece has been taken care of over the last 100 years... Kept as a show case piece for absolute certain in my opinion. An Elusive, Absolutely Gorgeous piece of Antique Carnival Glass. That is all I can find on this Scarce, Elegant and Beautiful Antique LOW, LOW Ruffled Bowl. An very pleasing example of this very attractive, highly prized pattern, difficult to obtain shape and base glass color. A presentation that catches the eye and looks wonderful on display! Exquisite shelf presence in terms of its sheer scarcity and lovely overall visual qualities. If you enjoy owning pieces that stand out in a crowd, ones that few others have, ones that get noticed... Give this Gorgeous ICE GREEN Jewel your full consideration. It absolutely would enhance any collection, giving it exceptional visual appeal and interest as well as outstanding dollar value. An outstanding opportunity to own an truly gorgeous, exceptional piece of this fine antique glass! I fully intend it to be that way, no glitz and glamour. I find it completely fascinating. There is nothing like it in 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.
