Here is a green carnival glass dish that is perfect mint condition. I am age 73, and I can vouch for it being in my family for over 100 years. Special characteristics are that it's ruffled, and has handles. The inside of the dish has a lovely embossed butterfly in the bottom. Upon turning the dish over, an N with a line under it marks the back. We all recognize this as Northwood's mark. Northwood was a very prolific glass maker during the turn of the century, and later.

    Hi Scandi....Yes I do use the dish on special occasions. I'm pleased to know that both you and Bellin68 love it. ;-)
