In terms of its sheer rarity and exceptional iridescent beauty, the shelf presence is SPECTACULAR! 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. A truly elusive, absolutely stunning 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 pieces in this pattern over the years, handled many more, and I have never seen one that was marked... So if you are waiting for a marked one, you will wait forever. It is absolutely an authentic Northwood piece... Antique Northwood at i ts VERY Finest!
It is every bit Elegant and Strikingly Gorgeous 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 3/4 inches wide at the widest point. 2 7/8 inches tall at the tallest point. There are NO CHIPS, CRACKS or REPAIRS on this Extremely Elusive, Visually Exquisite Antique Northwood Ruffled Bowl. A Deluxe 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 Spectacular Gem. It sits flat and level on a flat surface. THE INTERIOR: I can't make out any wear to the interior 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 display surface is absolutely awesome. The photographs, in total, clearly show is in supreme condition. The very bold, yet very elegant pattern details glisten with pure zest in natural light.It is exquisitely iridized and is absolutely stunning on display. Talk about making a statement.... The PREMIUM Pastels are Rainbow Multi-Colored with lots of PINK and BLUE.
A stunning piece of Antique Northwood and a Magnificent example of this shape and pattern. 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 ruffles are very well balanced.The scallops around the outside edge all accounted for.

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!
