Splendid Blue Carnival Glass 9 Bowl with Ribbed Exterior and Pie Crust Edge, in excellent undamaged antique condition. 1908 - 1925 ANTIQUE CARNIVAL GLASS.Formed The Northwood Glass Company in Martin's Ferry, Ohio, in 1888. In 1892 the firm relocated to Ellwood City, PA, and then moved again to Indiana, Pennsylvania, in 1896. In 1901, unhappy with being a member of the National Glass Combine, Northwood severed his ties with National, bought the old Hobbs, Brockunier plant in Wheeling, West Virginia, and was back to being happy as an independent producer. His old plant in Indiana, PA, became the Dugan Glass Company. Northwood began producing iridized glassware circa 1908.

Strands of undissolved colorant (usually in green glass).In the glass caused by premature solidification where the molten glass was. Snipped from the gathering rod with cool metal shears when the mould was full; lines also formed on the surface during the cooling process. Tool marks from implements used to form the edge or influence the shape. Mold issues related to filling and release such as incomplete or malformed edges.
Rough seams, extra glass at seams; webbed, incomplete or pulled edge points. Uneven legs, slanted stems or a bowed base (causing rocking), surface lines and heat checks. Production issues may be undesirable in the extreme, but they do not qualify as "damage" and will be found to some degree on nearly all antique glassware.
Issues of wear will be left to your discretion. All items are bubble wrapped. No tape is used on the bubble wrap YAY! Carton voids are filled with cushioning peanuts. Cartons are labeled GLASS or FRAGILE, and.
