Collectible vintage Tiffin stretch glass bowl in a pearl white iridescence. This lovely translucent serving or console bowl in stretch glass was made by Tiffin Glass, has a ground bottom and dates from the 1920s. This beautiful old glassware is nearing 100 years of age and is not only very collectible, but almost ready to be termed an antique.
To get the stretch effect on the glassware, it was sprayed with a metallic salt mix while hot, which gave it an iridescent onion skin effect (see photo 2 for a close up). It is especially lovely in the white. Rainbow, Crackle, Lustre, Cobweb and Iridescent glass were some of the terms used to describe stretch glass in company advertisements, as stretch glass is the name coined by collectors and authors.
This beauty is 12" long and is 1 5/8" tall. It is in good vintage condition, with only a couple very small dings on the underside edge. The edge has a slightly uneven, textured feel so I had to look hard to find them.
