Here is a strikingly beautiful example for your consideration. The iridescent presentation is extremely rich in nature with fabulous ELECTRIC Blue and Purple across the entire display surface and vibrant splashes of Rainbow Multi-Color giving the piece amazing visual appeal... FAR above average for these. An ultra rich, exquisite Electric presentation that works so nicely with the highly prized pattern... Well done and exceptionally attractive from any angle!
The shelf presence is Fantastic in terms of its sheer iridescent excellence. The photographs show the piece well... But honestly do not do it full justice. 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 shadows only.
If you have been looking for one of these beauties, one with exceptional iridescent splendor, here is a PREMIUM example with exquisite visual features. A spectacular piece with awesome eye appeal... Look it over and give it serious consideration. You'll enjoy this gorgeous, striking Antique Northwood piece and others will as well. This one is NOT marked.Not all Northwood was marked, that fact has been well documented. I have owned many pieces in this pattern over the years and my experience has been less than half were marked. It is absolutely an authentic Northwood piece... Antique Northwood its very Finest! It is every bit as beautiful as the photos show. My photos are taken outside in natural indirect sunlight.
I never use flashes, lighting 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 inches wide at the widest point. 2 inches tall at the tallest point. There are NO CHIPS, CRACKS or REPAIRS on this Stunning, Absolutely Gorgeous Antique Northwood Pie Crust Edge Bowl. An Phenomenal piece of this fine Antique Glass! THE BASE: The mold seams are barely there to the touch... I can make out just very light shelf wear bottom of the base which is very common for this antique glass... Certainly nothing uncommon on this Grand Beauty. The piece sits flat and level on a flat surface. THE INTERIOR: I can make out some flecks of wear on just a couple of the raised areas of the Pie Crust Edge which is extremely common for any of these antique pieces with Pie Crust Edges and certainly nothing uncommon on this Spectacular piece. The close up photographs clearly show the display surface of this beauty is in superb condition. The iridescence throughout the pattern details are ultra rich and feature striking ELECTRIC Blues and Purples with vibrant Rainbow Multi-Color highlights... Quite stunning in natural light with a magnificent velvet like sheen giving the piece outstanding visual appeal. An exceptionally sharp presentation over this prized base glass color! The shelf presence is outstanding in every regard!
THE EXTERIOR: I can't make out any wear around the exterior at all which is extraordinary. THE EDGE: The Edge Treatment on the piece is quite well done.
The Pie Crust Edge is evenly formed all the way around the bowl, very nicely balanced. All the teeth around the outside edge have been accounted for. An tremendous piece that has been so very well maintained overall over the last 100 years, absolutely kept as a show case piece in my opinion. An ultra rich, eye catching piece of antique Northwood and a very classy piece of this century old glass. That is all I can find on this Visually Exquisite, Striking Antique Northwood Pie Crust Edge Bowl.
A fabulous example of this very elegant and highly prized pattern, shape and base glass color. A PREMIUM example with an exceptional shimmer in natural light. The shelf presence, in terms of its sheer iridescent excellence, is simply outstanding. If you have been looking for an exceptional one with super rich, ELECTRIC iridescent characteristics...
Take a darn good look here. They are tough to come by with iridescent splendor this phenomenal and opportunities to own them certainly do not come along every day for sure, especially in this kind of condition. You will love this eye catching, GORGEOUS Gem and others will certainly appreciate it as well.LOTS of EYE CANDY to share and enjoy! It will add superb visual appeal and interest to your display as well as excellent dollar value. It is every bit as beautiful and attractive 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.
