A Very Elusive, Spectacular piece ofAntique Northwood glass.This one IS marked. It is light, but it is there. Not all Northwood was marked, it has been very well documented that only 1/2 of the pieces made weremarked.I have ownedmany, manypieces in this pattern over the years, handed many more,and my experience has been less than half were marked. However...this one was. Antique Northwood at its VERY Finest!It isevery bit as Rich and Beautiful as the photos show.

BASE GLASS COLOR:
There are NO CRACKSor REPAIRSon this EXTREMELY ELUSIVE, Rich, Absolutely Beautiful Antique Northwood Large Master Ruffled Bowl. An Exceptional example of this fineantique glass!THE BASE:The mold seams are barely there to the touch...nice and smooth.I can make out just very light shelf wearon the bottom of the base which is very common for any piece of this Fine Antique Glass...certainly nothing uncommon at all on this Rare, Beautiful Grand Master Ruffled Bowl. Itsits flat andlevel on a flat surface. THE INTERIOR:I can't make out anywear at all on theinterior display surface of this Stellar Gem whatsoever which is extraordinary for the shape, pattern and this antique glass in general.The photographs of the interior clearly show it is in Fantasticshape.

The exterior, as well, exhibits Beautiful Pastel iridescent colors all the way around making it so very pretty to look at! THE EDGE: Thepiece is well formed in every regard...the ruffles nice and even...it shows great balance. PHOTO 10 shows that on the exterior, right on the very edge, there is a small, 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 just how very tiny it is and in my opinion, it is completely insignificant on a Rare Bowl, a pretty one too, that the photographs clearly show, in total, has been so very well cared for over the last 100 years. It was absolutelykept as aShow Case piece without a doubt!

I have been selling antiques on a long time. You may note that mysale format is very plain...I fully intendit to be that way, no glitz and glamour. I am an antique enthusiast and collector of old glass and pottery...I find it completelyfascinating. I am a HUGE advocate of antique Carnival Glass...in my opinion...there is nothing else like it in the world of antiques...not even close. I'm selling fine antiques...not me. 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! Imagine...made in the USA...what a concept! They areawesome all by themselves...no glitz and glamour isneeded to promote them...the photographs say it all! Please enjoy the many photos and detailed descriptions...in my opinion...nothing else needs to be done or said. You will find my descriptions much more detailed than you will get at any public sale...guaranteed! I do my best to point out damage or wear issues with the pieces I offer.I'm not perfect...but I am honest. True antique glass always has some manufacturing marks. It was made a century ago and mass produced...cheaply...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. People still went to the corner drug store to use the phone! Imagine! 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 throughoutthe glass or a manufacturing heat check...I will mention it. 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. Please educate yourself about the items you are buying and ask questions while the sale is in progress. If typical manufacturing marks bother you...please ask questions up front! I will readily answer questions as diligently as I can.
It is always a great idea to educate yourself about the antiques you are interested in purchasing before you buy from me or anyone else. I highly encourage it.It will further your appreciation and hone your interest. For Carnival Glass....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. Even used...they are well worth the money. 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. The Mordini sale Price guide is also extremely useful. There are other very worthy materials out there that will help you learn and grow, as well as numerous clubs and organizations.
I ship USPS Priority exclusively and I usually ship only on Saturdays and Mondays. 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 do apply a small handling fee to the Shipping Cost. I greatly apologize, but Shipping supplies are NOT cheap. Running sales doesn't mean I make money. I never know how an item will sell. I can't afford to take losses on items (which happens) AND pay for Shipping Materials. In order to maintain the sale format that many of you have told me repeatedly that you greatly appreciate...I must make sure Shipping Supplies are covered. SHIPPING INSURANCE IS INCLUDED IN THIS FEEin the unlikely event it is damaged in transit. My goal, however, is to NEVER have a damaged piece of glass...EVER! My response comments prove my diligence in that regard.
YOU BET! I always combine shipping costs on multiple purchases whenever I feel I can do so safely with no possible harm to the pieces!!! I also discount shipping for repeat buyers whenever I can, significantly if possible, up to and including Free Shipping. Running sales do not always allow me to do that...sometimes I lose money and can't...but if I can...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!
All purchases are considered final. I run 7 to 10 day sales with plenty of photos, text and lots of time for questions if needed. I will accept returns if I have obviously misrepresented an item and I agree that I have. I will refund the original Purchase Price and the original Shipping Cost only.
