This is a VERY RARE Antique Northwood PEACOCKS Collar Based Pie Crust Edge Bowl with a Rayed or Ribbed exterior pattern made in the early 1900's. The Base Glass color is highly prized ICE GREEN. When was the last time you saw one for sale? The iridescence features lots of vivid Pastel Rainbow Multi-Color throughout the center and pattern details... Extremely pleasing in natural light.If you love and appreciate fine pastel iridescence... This one is loaded with exquisite visual characteristics. An awesome piece that stands out in a crowd and gets noticed! In terms of its sheer rarity and vibrant iridescent appeal, 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 an excellent opportunity to own an extremely elusive, absolutely gorgeous specimen with an eye catching overall presentation. Certainly a high quality, PREMIUM piece of Antique Northwood glass. This one is NOT marked. 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 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 at its very finest! It is every bit Elegant and Beautiful 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 7/8 inches wide at the widest point. 2 1/4 inches tall at the tallest point.
There are NO CRACKS or REPAIRS on this Extremely Elusive, Visually Exquisite Antique Northwood Pie Crust Edge Bowl. A Fabulous example 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 this antique glass... Certainly nothing uncommon on this Gorgeous Gem.
It sits flat and level on a flat surface. THE INTERIOR: I can't make out any wear to the interior display surface of this piece at all which is extraordinary for this shape, pattern and indeed this antique glass in general. The close up photographs clearly show the condition of the interior surface is absolutely awesome. The display surface features lovely, colorful Pastel Rainbow Multi-Color throughout the center and pattern details... Exceptionally beautiful and bold for a Pastel piece with a Rich overall iridescent luster giving the piece wonderful eye appeal in natural light.
The raised pattern details glisten with zest too in natural light! A Fantastic example that stands out in a crowd and gets noticed! THE EXTERIOR: I can't make out any wear on the exterior of this stunning piece which is remarkable. THE EDGE: The piece is well formed in every regard.
The Pie Crust Edge is well shaped all the way around the piece, the piece shows great balance. The teeth around the outside edge have all been accounted for. PHOTO 10 shows that on the side of one of the teeth, there is a very tiny, very 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 teeny, tiny it is... Completely insignificant in my opinion on a truly RARE piece with stunning visual characteristics.
The photographs clearly show it has been so very well taken care of over the last 100 years. Kept as a Show Case piece without a doubt!
They very rarely ever come along for sale, but especially with an iridescent presentation this beautiful in this kind of overall condition. An extremely elusive, 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 VERY RARE, Absolutely Gorgeous Antique Northwood Pie Crust Edge Bowl.An ultimately eye catching example of this very elegant and highly prized pattern, shape and extremely difficult to obtain base glass color. This fabulous piece makes a heck of a statement on display in terms of its sheer visual beauty! A high quality presentation that is a pure pleasure to look at, one that stands out in a crowd and attracts plenty of attention. There are very few out there to own!
If you enjoy owning PREMIUM, TOP NOTCH pieces... Here is a rich, shimmering example loaded with eye pleasing details and a delightful pastel iridescent luster, quite rich in nature, giving it Fantastic shelf presence! It will add tremendous visual quality and interest to your display as well as excellent dollar value. It is every bit as 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.
