This pretty bowl can be found in various opalescent colors and was made by Northwood in the very late 19th century, circa 1897 to 1898. The pattern proved to be very popular, so it is not hard to find examples, but perfect examples without chips or cracks like this one still elude collectors. Even if you do not collect this type of glass exclusively, the iridescent and color changing nature of the glass, most apparent in the white and clear opalescent, is quite fascinating. Hold it to the light and you will see a pearly array of colors! This lovely shallow bowl or card receiver measures a little over 7 inches in diameter. Very nice!
