The iridescent presentation is ELECTRIC in nature... Super RICH with a vibrant, velvet like sheen over the display surface.
The raised pattern details glisten with pure zest in natural light and stand out superbly from the sultry Rich iridescent background. An exquisite presentation that works so nicely with the pleasing and highly prized pattern... Well done and attractive from any angle!The shelf presence is Fantastic in terms of its pure visual beauty. The photographs show the piece well... But honestly do not do it 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 elegant beauties, one with dazzling, vibrant iridescent splendor, one with superb visual qualities that will get noticed, here is a stunning specimen with with exquisite visual features. An outstanding piece with awesome eye appeal... Even better than the photographs show... Look it over and give it serious consideration. You'll enjoy this gorgeous, vibrant 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, 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 visually stunning 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 7/8 inches wide at the widest point. 1 3/4 inches tall at the tallest point. There are NO CHIPS, CRACKS or REPAIRS on this Visually Stunning, Gorgeous Antique Northwood Pie Crust Edge Bowl. An exquisite piece of this fine Antique Glass! THE BASE: The mold seams are barely there to the touch...
I can't make out any shelf wear bottom of the base which is extraordinary for this antique glass. The piece sits flat and level on a flat surface. THE INTERIOR: I can't make out any wear on the interior at all which is extraordinary for the shape and pattern.
The interior display surface exhibits Ultra Rich, Ultra Gorgeous iridescence throughout, Electric in nature, with sharp Blues, Purples and Greens. The pattern details stand out superbly from the sultry rich iridescent background giving the piece outstanding visual appeal in natural light. You must look closely to see them.
Over many years of collecting this glass, it is not uncommon and in my opinion, absolutely insignificant. The close up photographs clearly show how insignificant. It is a visually striking piece with stunning visual appeal. The shelf presence is Magnificent in every regard!
THE EXTERIOR: I can't make out any wear around the exterior at all which is extraordinary. The exterior of this one is extremely colorful! Rich Rainbow Multi-Color throughout the exterior which does nothing but enhance an overall gorgeous visual presentation. THE EDGE: The Edge Treatment on the piece is quite well done.The Pie Crust Edge is well formed all the way around the bowl. All the teeth around the outside edge have all been accounted for. An outstanding piece that has well maintained overall over the last 100 years, kept as a show case piece in my opinion. An extremely elegant and 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, Ultra Rich Antique Northwood Pie Crust Edge Bowl. A very pleasing example of this elegant and highly prized pattern, shape and base glass color. A splendid example with a superb glistening qualities in natural light.
The shelf presence, in terms of its sheer pure iridescent excellence, is outstanding.

You will love this eye catching, truly GORGEOUS Gem and others will certainly appreciate it as well. It will add superb visual appeal and interest to your display as well as excellent dollar value. It is every bit as stunningly 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.
