This is a tremendous opportunity to own one of these highly prized STIPPLED VARIANT Gems, in ELECTRIC BLUE, with the Pie Crust Edge, a strikingly gorgeous example of this highly prized shape and pattern.An extremely elusive, high quality 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, handled 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 Super Rich and Ultimately 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 7/8 wide at the widest point. 2 1/8 inches tall at the tallest point. There are NO CHIPS, CRACKS or REPAIRS on this Very Elusive, Ultra Rich and Ultimately Gorgeous Antique Northwood STIPPLED Pie Crust Edge Bowl. A Phenomenal 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!
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.
The iridescent luster is Ultra Rich with awesome glistening qualities in natural light. It is absolutely loaded with Vivid ELECTRIC Blue and Purple with dynamic Rainbow Multi-Color details giving it phenomenal visual characteristics that catches the eye and stand WAY, WAY out in a crowd. The display surface is absolutely dazzling! The photographs do not do it full justice at all.An absolutely amazing piece of Antique Northwood Glass. THE EXTERIOR: I can't make out any wear on the exterior of this fantastic piece which is remarkable. THE EDGE: The piece is well formed in every regard. The Pie Crust Edge is nice and even all the way around the bowl.
The teeth around the outside edge have all been accounted for. It shows superb overall balance. PHOTO 10 shows that on the very edge, there is a very teeny, tiny shallow pen-head sized 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 very tiny and insignificant it is... Completely insignificant, in my opinion, on a Spectacular Specimen with potent visual qualities that the photographs clearly show, in total, has been so very well taken care of over the last 100 years. Kept as a Show Case piece without a doubt! An extremely elusive, ultra rich and ultra gorgeous piece of antique Northwood and an classic and classy piece of this century old glass.

It will add spectacular visual quality and interest to your display as well as superb dollar value. It is every bit as Potent and Visually Impressive 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.
