Grape Imperial Amber Carnival Glass
This bowl is stunning! When I found it in an antique store, I couldn't believe no one had immediately snatched it up. There is no way for me to capture the level of iridescence and depth of color shown when the bowl is simply sitting in a darkened room. The red/gold color alone is breathtaking. But it is enhanced by stippling on the interior as well as exterior of the bowl.
This bowl is a true antique as it is not marked, typical of the early carnival glass produced by Imperial. Based on my research, this bowl was produced as early as 1909. It has a 9" diameter. There is no damage. The bowl is in "like-new" condition.
