Imperial Grape Marigold Carnival Glass Deep Bowl with scalloped edging. This Grape pattern bowl was produced by Imperial glass in the early 1900's. This glass is not a reproduction and is not marked with IG that indicates the glass was reproduced in the 1950's-1960's. This marigold bowl has even iridescence with a nice pattern strike. Take note that the bottom of the bowl has a nice silvery hue. There is a very small flea bite around the rim of the base. It is not really visible but if you run your finger around the base of the bowl you can feel it. Until now I have never noticed it. Does not detract from the beauty of the bowl. There are no other visable defects. Price reflects the inclusion of the small flea bite. Bowl size is 7 " wide and 3" tall. Keep in mind that this bowl is over 100 years old.
All of my photos are taken using natural light or using lights of 5500 Kelvins that simulates actual noon sunshine. This lighting temperature is the same lighting that you can expect when you display it in your home. Do remember that glass will display differently depending on the location and the time of day. I do not edit my photos for light or color. Take comfort in knowing that you will receive exactly what you are purchasing. If you would like additional photos or have any questions feel free to contact me.
A thought to keep in mind. Vintage items have a past of their own. They have shared their lives in other loving homes and at times have their own unique characteristics. I attempt to list all major flaws but remember that they are not new. The differences in each individual piece is why we collect antiques and vintage merchandise.
