Every bit as Rich and Ultimately Beautiful as the photos show. My photos are taken outside in natural indirect sunlight.I never use a flash or props. I never enhance photos, never have, never will. I aim to show you the best iridescent color the piece offers. If the piece looks awesome in the photos... What you see is what you will get!

An Bright, Visually Striking piece of this fine antique glass! THE BASE: The mold seams on the base are nice and smooth. I can make out just very light shelf wear on the bottom of the base which is very common for this fine antique glass... Certainly nothing uncommon on this Rare Jewel!
It sits flat and level on a flat surface. I can't make out any wear at all.
It appears it was never used for anything but display. Truly exceptional for this shape, pattern and this antique glass in general. The iridescent properties throughout the interior display surface are incredible! It is extraordinarily well done.Rich, gorgeous iridescence featuring vibrant Rainbow Multi-Color throughout giving the piece PREMIUM eye appeal... Certainly the interior does nothing but enhance a tremendous overall presentation. THE EXTERIOR: I can't make out any wear to the exterior at all with is remarkable. The exterior of this one exhibits gorgeous iridescent splendor all the way around, top to bottom featuring a Radium luster, very bright and shiny, with Vivid Rainbow Multi-Color throughout giving it magnificent eye appeal.
Talk about making a statement on display... THE EDGE: The Edge Treatment on the piece is very well done. The handle is nice and straight.
The elegant crimped edge treatment is very well done... PHOTO 10 shows that there is a tiny little manufacturing heat check where the handle was applied at the top. These are very common in this old glass where hot applied handles touched cooled sides of the pitcher when it was made. You can clearly see how very tiny and insignificant it is... Completely insignificant, in my opinion, on a truly RARE piece, extraordinarily gorgeous, that the close up photographs clearly show, in total, has been so very well taken care of over the last 100 years.
It has absolutely been kept as a show case piece without a doubt. Opportunities to own these are RARE!

FAR, FAR above average for these. There are very, very few of these out there to own, in existence, in GREEN base glass, and the Brilliant Visual characteristics on this fabulous piece are of High Quality and ultimately eye catching on display. Certainly its a piece that will add awesome visual appeal and interest to your display as well as excellent dollar value.It is every bit as Amazingly Colorful as the photographs show! I fully intend it to be that way, no glitz and glamour. I find it completely fascinating. There is nothing else like it in the world of antiques... The historical pieces I sell are part of our history, as a country, and made right here in the good ole' USA unless I state otherwise.
They represent a time when America made things, great things... Before it was popular to sell this country out! The photographs say it all! Nothing else needs to be done or said. I do my best to point out damage or wear issues with the pieces I offer.True antique glass always has some manufacturing marks. It was made a century ago and mass produced... Well before quality was an idea. Well before Cell Phones, Computers or any technology at all. It is hard for people to comprehend that today, but it is fact.
The working conditions were unbearable by today's standards, yet the hard working American's of this era produced some of the most amazing items ever made. Manufacturing marks within the glass are part of the charm of this period in time. If there is a manufacturing mark that is out of the ordinary... Such as excessive, contained, bubbles throughout the glass or a manufacturing heat check... Normal manufacturing marks such as straw marks, stretch marks, enclosed bubbles, light tool marks, though, will not be mentioned and should certainly be anticipated.
Look over the many photos provided. If typical manufacturing marks bother you... Please ask questions up front! I will readily answer questions as diligently as I can.
It will further your appreciation and hone your interest. I highly recommend David Doty's Carnival Glass Website. I also find his Field Guides extremely helpful if you can find them, there are several. They are the best guide to learning patterns, especially the 2000 updated version. I also recommend Edwards and Carwile's Carnival Glass Encyclopedia...
There are several editions published. They cover the widest array of patterns of any guide I have seen and the text is excellent.There are other very worthy materials out there that will help you learn and grow, as well as numerous clubs and organizations. I use premium ONE INCH bubble wrap (not the cheap 1/4 inch) and foam peanuts to package the pieces exclusively. I take great pride in packaging these wonderful pieces of history VERY well... Like they deserve to be packaged and I like them packaged for me.
I never know how an item will sell. My goal, however, is to NEVER have a damaged piece of glass...
My feedback comments prove my diligence in that regard. Running No Reserve Auctions do not always allow me to do that... For repeat buyers I certainly will!I don't advertise it... I just do it when I send the invoice. It is my way of saying THANK YOU! I run 7 to 10 day auctions with plenty of photos, text and lots of time for questions if needed.
