Opalescent glass has been widely accepted since its inception in the 1880's. The major production covered 40 years (1880 - 1920) by famous American and European glass houses.
This lovely "Spokes & Wheels" variant pattern, circa 1906, is from the Northwood Company. The triangular-shaped bowl with large saw-tooth rim is decorated with panels of oval wheels formed by tiny beads with spokes (starburst) centers. The difference between the original pattern and the variant is the area between the top of each oval is notched out, omitting the blossom and stem that was present on the original. It was produced in blue, green, white and aqua. The bowl measures 8" across, 2 1/2" in height and is marked "N" in a circle. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; near mint. Great pattern and color.
