Not all Northwood was marked, it has been very well documented that only 1/2 of the pieces made were marked. I have owned many, many pieces of Northwood over the years, handed many more, and my experience has been less than half were marked.
It is absolutely an authentic Northwood piece... Antique Northwood at i ts VERY, VERY Finest!It is every bit Ultra Rich and Strikingly 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 8 3/4 inches wide at the widest point. 2 1/2 inches tall at the tallest point. There are NO CRACKS or REPAIRS on this EXTREMELY ELUSIVE, Super RICH, Ultra Colorful Antique Northwood Ruffled Bowl.An Ultra RARE, absolutely Spectacular example of this fine antique glass! THE BASE: The mold seams are barely there to the touch... I can't make any shelf wear on the bottom of the base which is extraordinary 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 on the display surface which is extraordinary to say the least.
The close up photographs clearly show that the display surface is in SUPER shape. PHOTO 10 shows that there is what appears to be a very shallow flake or nick to the cleat of the horse shoe... Shown very 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 just how small and insignificant it is. On an Ultra RARE piece, with Spectacular iridescence, that the photographs show, in total, has been so very well taken care of over the last 100 years, it is completely insignificant in my opinion.
Just try finding another period. Let alone another that can come anywhere close to comparing to this one in iridescence excellence and condition! Super Rich, Super Colorful with a velvet like sheen... SPECTACULAR to say the very least. A DAZZLING, High Quality piece of Antique Northwood Glass!
THE EXTERIOR: I can't make out any wear on the exterior at all which is exceptional for this elegant shape and pattern. THE EDGE: The piece is well formed in every regard. The ruffles are nice and even all the way around the bowl. The teeth around the outside edge have all been accounted for. The piece shows superb overall balance.
The photographs clearly show, in total, just how well this Grand Jewel 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!
These are SUPER RARE in SAPPHIRE base glass! Most have never seen one. It is Strikingly Beautiful too and in Super overall shape! You will look very long and hard to find another period, I have only seen a few, and you won't find a finer one in iridescent excellence, let alone overall condition!An Ultra Elusive, Super Rich, Spectacular piece of Antique Northwood and an Classic and Classy piece of this Fine Antique Glass.

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.
