It stands WAY, WAY out in a crowd and gets noticed! In terms of its pure iridescent excellence, the shelf presence is Phenomenal! Please look the photographs over and enjoy.
I have shown you as many angles and iridescent features as I could cram into 12 photographs. Dark areas in the photographs are absolutely shadows only.This is a tremendous opportunity to own an extraordinarily beautiful specimen with a dynamic overall presentation... Ultra Rich and loaded with PURE EYE CANDY! A Magnificent piece of Antique Northwood glass. 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 hundreds of pieces in this pattern over the years and my experience has been less than half were marked. Antique Northwood at i ts VERY Finest!
It is every bit Vivid and Visually Striking as the photos show and then some. 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 5/8 inches wide at the widest point.
2 1/8 inches tall at the tallest point. There are NO CRACKS or REPAIRS on this Ultra Rich and Ultra Gorgeous Antique Northwood Pie Crust Edge Bowl.
A Dazzling example of this fine antique glass! 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 interior display surface at all which is extraordinary for this shape, pattern and indeed this antique glass in general. Looks as though it was never used for anything but display. Stunningly Gorgeous iridescent splendor throughout the interior. The birds themselves are a Spectacle all on their own...Super Rich, Ultra Vibrant ELECTRIC Blue and Purple with Fabulous Rainbow Multi-Color highlights dominate the display surface. It exhibits High Quality luster that give it awesome eye appeal in natural light to say the very least. LOADS of EYE CANDY on this Jewel to enjoy!
A heck of a piece of Antique Northwood! THE EXTERIOR: I can't make out any wear on the exterior of this stunning piece which is remarkable. This one is just as colorful on the back as it is the front!
It sure makes it easy to display no matter the angle! They are RARE with the backside this colorful! THE EDGE: The piece is well formed in every regard. The teeth around the top edge have all been accounted for. PHOTO 10 shows that right on the very edge, there is a very small, shallow flake, 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 how small and insignificant it is. Completely insignificant, in my opinion, on an extraordinarily colorful piece, just dynamite, that the hotographs 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! They very seldom ever come along for sale with an iridescent presentation this Ultra Rich, Ultra Colorful inside and out! You will be hard pressed to ever find another that can come close to comparing to this one in iridescent quality or overall condition. A visually exquisite piece of antique Northwood and an classic and classy piece of this century old glass. That is all I can find on this Visually Striking Antique Northwood Pie Crust Edge Bowl.
An ultimately eye catching example of this very elegant, intricate and highly prized pattern, shape and base glass color. This dazzling piece makes a heck of a statement on display in terms of its sheer iridescent excellence...
A high quality, PREMIUM iridescent presentation that is a feast for the eyes... Certainly a pure pleasure to look at! One that stands WAY out in a crowd and attracts lots of attention. If you enjoy owning pieces with Magnum iridescent splendor... Here is a Magnificent Gem with eye catching visual qualities and vivid overall luster giving it TOP SHELF appeal!
It will add tremendous visual quality and interest to your display as well as excellent dollar value. It is every bit as Ultra Rich and Ultimately Beautiful as it looks! 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.
