Loads of Ultra Colorful, Radium eye appeal at any angle. The shelf presence, in terms of its sheer scarcity and sharp iridescent finish, is absolutely Phenomenal! Photographs do not do this one full justice.If you enjoy owning classic pieces... And have been searching for a PREMIUM example, in PURPLE, take a good look at this magnificent piece and give it serious consideration. The photographs show the piece well... Please look them over and enjoy. I have showed you as many angles and iridescent features as I could cram into 12 photographs. Dark areas in the photographs are absolutely reflections and shadows only.
The visual presentation is absolutely as bright and visually striking as the photos show and then some... Truly exceptional in every regard. A truly scarce, vibrant Radium piece of Classic Millersburg Glass!The piece is not marked. It is an Antique Millersburg piece, Antique Millersburg at i ts VERY Finest! It is every bit as bright and beautiful 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 9 inches wide at the widest point. 2 1/2 inches tall at the tallest point. There are NO CRACKS or REPAIRS on this ELUSIVE, Absolutely Stunning RADIUM Antique Millersburg Ruffled Bowl. A Beautiful, Gleaming piece of this fine antique glass!
THE BASE: The mold seams are barely there to the touch... I can make out just very slight shelf wear on the bottom of the base which is very common for any piece of this antique glass... Certainly nothing uncommon at all on this fabulous piece. It sits flat and level on a flat surface. THE INTERIOR: I can't make out any wear to the iridescence on the interior whatsoever which is truly extraordinary for this shape, pattern and this antique glass in general.The close up photographs clearly show the display surface of this piece is in truly exceptional condition. Gleaming, Exquisite Radium iridescence with vibrant, Ultra Colorful Rainbow Multi-Color making the piece an absolute delight to look at and exceptionally attractive in natural light! It absolutely lights up when natural light strikes the display surface at any angle as a PURE RADIUM piece does.
Spectacular shelf presence in terms of its sheer scarcity and gleaming, colorful iridescent properties. THE EXTERIOR: I can't make out any wear on the exterior at all. The exterior is nice and bright as well, quite vibrant, making the piece easy to display and attractive from any angle. PHOTO 10 shows that on the backside of one ruffle, there is a very shallow flake, shown very clearly next to the end of a ball point pen for easy reference to any ball point pen in your home.You can very clearly see how small and insignificant it is... Completely insignificant, in my opinion, on a Ultra Colorful, high gloss specimen that the photographs clearly show, in total, was very well taken care of over the last 100 years. THE EDGE: The piece is well formed in every regard.
The ruffles are evenly formed all the way around the bowl. The piece shows great balance for these. The photographs, in total, show just how well this gorgeous piece has been taken care of over the last 100 years... Kept as a show case piece for absolute certain in my opinion.
Opportunities to own them with Pure Radium iridescence very seldom ever comes along. You will be hard pressed to ever find a more beautiful Radium specimen. An elusive, stunning piece of antique Millersburg and a classic and very classy piece of this fine Antique Glass! That is all I can find on this Scarce, Visually Striking RADIUM Antique Millersburg Ruffled Bowl. An exceptional example of this elegant, highly prized pattern, shape and base glass color.It shimmers with pure zest in natural light, very impressive shelf presence in terms of its sheer scarcity and gleaming RADIUM iridescent presentation. If you appreciate Bright, Fabulous pieces of this amazing old glass with a high gloss Radium presentation... You will enjoy this outstanding piece and others will certainly appreciate it as well. Yes it has had one tiny incident on the backside of one ruffle...
One insignificant flaw in 100 years. None of us have lived nearly as long and all of us have had many incidents.
It is a Spectacular piece and deserves high quality shelf space! Just try finding a finer specimen in iridescent splendor or overall condition! It will add tremendous visual appeal and interest to your display as well as superb dollar value.
It is every bit as brilliant and beautiful as it looks and then some! 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.
