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 attractive "Beaded Drapes" pattern, circa 1905, is from the Northwood Company. The gently flared bowl with crimped outer rim is decorated with rows of tiny beads in the form of swag drapery and rests on four feet. The body of the bowl is clear with the opalescence appearing in the crimped border. It was produced in blue, green, white and vaseline. The bowl measures 8 1/2" in length, 6 1/2" across and 4" in height and resembles the form of pattern glass banana bowls made during this time period. There are no cracks, chips or repairs; near mint. Lovely.
