THE BASE: The mold seams are barely there to the touch... I can't make out any shelf wear on the bottom of the base which is extraordinary for this antique glass. It sits flat and level on a flat surface. THE INTERIOR: I can't make out any wear to the iridescence on the interior display surface whatsoever which is truly extraordinary for this shape, pattern and this antique glass in general. The Trout is in fabulous shape!

THE EDGE: The piece is well formed in every regard. The 3 in 1 Edge Shape is very evenly done all the way around the bowl. It shows great overall balance.
PHOTO 10 shows that on the very backside, on the very edge, there is a very tiny, very shallow flake... Shown clearly for you next to the end of a ball point pen for easy reference to any ball point pen in your home. You can clearly see how very tiny and insignificant it is... Completely insignificant, in my opinion, on a truly RARE piece, absolutely gorgeous throughout, that the photographs clearly show, in total, has been so very well taken care of over the last 100 years.
It was kept as a show case piece without a doubt! Opportunities to own them are RARE! When was the last time you ever saw a TRUE LAVENDER Trout and Fly???

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.
