A vintage, possibly antique gold backed Goofus Glass bowl. Goofus Glass was created before Depression or Carnival Glass. This bowl is 7" across and has lovely impressed grapes. The leaves are gold and the grapes are a deep red. There is a brilliant shine and clear coating that gives the grapes and leaves more depth.
This dish like most every piece of Goofus Glass has areas where the gold baking came off but the bowl, but it needs to be held up to light to see the flaws. There is very little ware and paint loss for pieces only made between 1900 to 1920's. Goofus glass is known for how easy all the paint would come off, thus one of the reasons for it's name.
