About half of these are not, but this one was. Talk about making a statement on display!

The very elegant pattern details glisten with zest. An extremely pleasing presentation to say the very least.It sure makes for an eye catching piece on exhibit. If you have been looking for one of these ICED beauties... A High Quality, Extraordinary Specimen, in ICE BLUE base glass... Take a darn good look here. Please see the photographs and enjoy...
I have showed as many angles and iridescent features as I can cram into 12 photographs. Dark areas in the photographs are shadows or reflections only. You'll be hard pressed to ever find a finer one.
Look it over and give it serious consideration. An truly elusive, absolutely beautiful piece of Northwood Glass.
Again THIS ONE IS MARKED! It is antique Northwood at its VERY, VERY finest. Every bit as Elegant and Visually Exquisite 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 1/4 inches tall at the tallest point. There are NO CHIPS, CRACKS or REPAIRS on this EXTREMELY ELUSIVE, Absolutely Gorgeous Antique Northwood Ruffled Bowl. A Visually Exquisite piece of this fine antique glass!THE BASE: The mold seams on the base are nice and smooth. I can't make out any shelf wear on the bottom of the base which is extraordinary for this fine antique glass. It sits flat and level on a flat surface. I can't make out any wear at all which is exceptional.
The photographs clearly show that the interior display surface is absolutely superb. Certainly exceptional for this shape and pattern. The iridescent properties throughout the interior display surface are nice and bright with fantastic shimmering qualities throughout and lovely Pastel Rainbow Multi-Color highlights from the very center and pattern details out and throughout the ruffled edge treatment.The raised pattern details glisten with absolute zest! In terms of its sheer rarity and overall visual beauty... The shelf presence is Spectacular! A whale of a piece of Antique Northwood Glass!
THE EXTERIOR: I can't make out any wear at all throughout the exterior which is extraordinary. And the exterior of this one is exceptionally beautiful as well, all the way around, exhibiting Lovely Pastel Rainbow Multi-Color highlights within the elegant Rayed pattern details. It sure makes it easy to display no matter the angle!THE EDGE: The Edge Treatment on the piece is very well done. The ruffles are nice and even all the way around the bowl. Very well done and well balanced. The teeth around the outside edge have all been accounted for.
PHOTO 10 shows that 3 teeth are pulled... Done while the glass was made and still hot enough to be formed. Not an uncommon feature for any piece of this fine old glass, part of the manufacturing process, and absolutely insignificant, in my opinion. Especially on a RARE piece of glass with exceptional iridescent beauty inside and out.Just try finding another one period, let alone one with better iridescent features in this kind of condition! An very elusive, exceptionally attractive piece of antique Northwood and a superb example of this century old glass. That is all I can find on this VERY SCARCE, Visually Exquisite Antique Northwood Ruffled Bowl. A Fantastic example of this very elegant and highly prized pattern, shape and extremely difficult to obtain base glass color. If you have been searching for an exceptional specimen in this prized pattern, in ICE BLUE base glass...
Here is a Superb Specimen! It sure makes a whale of a statement on display...
Certainly its a piece that will add awesome visual appeal and interest to your display as well as excellent dollar value. It is every bit as Elegant and Beautiful as the photographs show 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.
