Antique Northwood Diamond Point Opalescent Glass Swung Vase 11


Brand Etsy

This is a lovely antique opalescent glass vase made by Northwood in the Diamond Point pattern. The piece was made using a 3 part mould. It is made of light green semi-opaque glass that darkens and becomes more clear lower down the vase. The diamond points also become more white as they contrast against the darker colour at the bottom whereas at the upper part they look light green, matching the background colour. When looking at the glass with a light behind it, one can see the gold content in the glass. The bottom is rayed - Ive seen this vase primarily with a smooth bottom, so this seems a little unusual. There is a mark in the centre that appears to be the underlined N, but it is poorly stamped. The vase measures 11 in height. It is in very good condition with no chips, cracks or wear - there is a tiny indent next to the mould seam, but this is original to the manufacture and really nothing. This pattern was produced between 1909 and 1912, so this was been well preserved over the last 110 years.
This is a beautiful piece of glass.....great addition to a collection!
