AN ANTIQUE, OPALESCENT, CUSTARD GLASS SEVEN PIECE BERRY SET IN THE NORTHWOOD LOUIS XV PATTERN. THE LOUIS XV PATTERN IN IVORY AND GOLD WAS INTRODUCED IN 1898 BY THE NORTHWOOD CO.

IT WAS THE SPECIAL PATTERN OF THAT YEAR AND WAS DESCRIBED AS THE RICHEST EVER PUT ON THE MARKET IN PRESSED GLASSWARE. THE IVORY OF NORTHWOOD WAS DESCRIBED AS BRIGHT AND LUSTROUS IN COLOR AND POLISH. THE LOW RELIEF DESIGN PROVIDES A VERY GRACEFUL AND ARTISTIC EFFECT IN THESE PIECES AND IS HIGHLIGHTED BY THE GOLD EMBOSSED FLOWER SPRIGS ON THE SIDES OF EACH PIECE. THE EDGES ARE DELICATELY SCALLOPED AND TRIMMED WITH GOLD.

THE SMALL, SEA SHELL SHAPED, CURVED FEET ARE GOLD DECORATED. THERE IS LOSS OF GOLD ON THE SCALLOPED EDGE OF EACH PIECE AND THE SEA SHELL SHAPED FEET.

THE MASTER BERRY BOWL MEASURES 10 3/4 INCHES LONG; 8 1/2 INCHES WIDE; AND 5 INCHES HIGH. EACH SMALL BERRY BOWL MEASURES 5 1/4 INCHES LONG; 4 INCHES WIDE; AND 2 1/2 INCHES HIGH. IT IS A RARITY TO FIND A SET OF THIS MANY PIECES IN SUCH EXCELLENT CONDITION FOR ITS AGE.

EACH PIECE GLOWS YELLOW UNDER BLACK LIGHT. WHEN HELD TO REGULAR LIGHT OR SUNLIGHT IT BECOMES VERY OPALESCENT SHOWING THE RAYS OF COLOR. STRAW MARKS AND FLOW LINES ARE VISIBLE IN EACH PIECE.

THIS RARE MAGNIFICENT SEVEN PIECE BERRY SET WOULD BE A GREAT ADDITION TO ANY NORTHWOOD, CUSTARD, OR ANTIQUE GLASSWARE COLLECTION OR DISPLAY. THANK YOU FOR YOUR VIEWING. PLEASE CHECK MY OTHER LISTINGS FOR MORE VINTAGE ANTIQUE AND COLLECTIBLE ITEMS.
