Offering a Northwood Fine Cut and Roses Carnival Glass Rose Bowl. The base glass color is amethyst.
I believe the Fine Cut & Roses pattern was first made by Jefferson Glass Co. in Steubenville, Ohio, during the years 1901-1906. Fine Cut and Roses is Jefferson's #249 pattern.
Harry Northwood somehow obtained the mould for this pattern from the Jefferson Glass Co. around 1907. (no one seems to know how this happened and it is called the Jefferson mould mystery) Northwood began making this item during 1907-1908 and thereafter. The pieces with the smooth interior are marked with the Northwood underlined N in a circle on the inside. This one I am offering has the "Fancy" pattern on the interior so it is not marked. This rose bowl also has the molded "collar" that connects the feet. The iridescence on this bowl is very pretty with the area near the top being red, copper, and gold and changing to a silver color just below the roses.
CONDITION: No damage that I can see or feel. Slight wear on the three toes but no chips. And no scratches or stains. There are the normal small imperfections that are usually found on old carnival glass.
SIZE: Approximately 4" tall X 3-1/4" wide.
