A COMMON PROBLEM IN OUR PERFECT COMPUTER AGE. IF THIS HAPPENS, YOU NEED TO DELETE THE COOKIES FROM YOUR DEVICE, LOG OUT AND LOG BACK IN.OR SWITCH DEVICES TO VIEW THE AD. This is a VERY SCARCE Antique Northwood PEACOCKS or PEACOCKS ON THE FENCE Thin Collar Based Pie Crust Edge Bowl with the Rayed or Ribbed exterior back pattern made in the early 1900's. The Base Glass color is highly prized BLUE!
This one has the THIN COLLAR BASE as shown in PHOTO 4. These STIPPLED variant pieces seldom EVER come along or sale and this one is a Beauty! An Awesome opportunity to own one of these very elusive pieces. It exhibits Super Rich iridescence across the entire display surface with super glistening qualities as natural light strikes the display surface...Typically the STIPPLED display surface drowns out the iridescence... But not on this one. Vibrant Blue and Purple can be seen throughout with Rich Rainbow Multi-Color highlights. FAR above average for these! The fine, elegant raised pattern details glisten very nicely in natural light. The photographs do not do it full justice at all. You ought to hold this Jewel in your hands! If you have been looking for an exceptionally Gorgeous specimen, in BLUE base glass, in superb overall shape... Take a darn good look here!
In terms of its sheer rarity and fantastic overall visual beauty... The shelf presence is truly SPECTACULAR! Please take a look at the photographs 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. These seldom come along for sale at all in the STIPPLED VARIANT and this is a tremendous opportunity to own an incredibly beautiful specimen with outstanding eye appeal.A truly elusive, absolutely gorgeous 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, handed many more, and my experience has been less than half were marked.
It is absolutely an authentic Northwood piece... Antique Northwood at i ts VERY Finest! It is every bit as rich, elegant and stunningly beautiful 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 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 VERY ELUSIVE, Extremely Rich, Exceptionally Colorful Antique Northwood STIPPLED Pie Crust Edge Bowl. A Superb and Very Elegant 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.
THIS ONE HAS THE HIGHLY DESIRABLE THIN COLLAR BASE TOO... PHOTO 4 SHOWS THIS CLEARLY. 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.
It looks as thought it was never used for anything but display over the last 100 years. The iridescence is very rich in nature, exceptionally beautiful across the entire display surface. The STIPPLED surface doesn't drown out the beauty of the iridescent colors on this one! The overall STIPPLED surface can easily be seen in the close up photographs. Vibrant Blue and Purple dominate the display surface from the very center out to the very edge with fabulous Rainbow Multi-Color highlights.
The fine, elegant raised pattern details glisten with absolute zest. A heck of a piece of Antique Northwood Glass! THE EXTERIOR: I can't make out any wear on the exterior at all which is extraordinary for this elegant shape and pattern. THE EDGE: The piece is well formed in every regard. The Pie Crust Edge is very well balanced all the way around the bowl.The teeth around the outside edge have all been accounted for. PHOTOS 9 and 10 show that on the very edge, there is a very small, very shallow flake and a very tiny manufacturing separation right on the very edge... Both 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 tiny and insignificant they are. Absolutely insignificant, in my opinion, on a truly RARE piece with exceptional overall iridescent luster and color that the photographs clearly show, in total, has been so very well taken care of over the last 100 years. It was absolutely kept as a Show Case piece without a doubt! They rarely EVER come along for sale at all, and especially this strikingly beautiful in this kind of overall condition!
A truly 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 SCARCE, Ultra Rich and Stunningly Gorgeous Antique Northwood STIPPLED Variant Pie Crust Edge Bowl. A tremendous example of this very highly prized variant pattern, very difficult to obtain shape and base glass color.
The piece makes a heck of a statement on display just in terms of its sheer rarity alone! A piece that stands out and attracts lots of attention! There are not many around to own and they very seldom come up for sale with iridescent characteristics this Fabulous. If you have been looking for one with TOP NOTCH iridescent splendor, in BLUE base glass, take a darn good look here! You will be hard pressed to every find a finer one to enjoy!It will add awesome visual appeal and interest to your display as well as outstanding dollar value. It is every bit as Rich and Visually Exquisite 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.
