I believe this is one of those little Northwood bowls. It is in vaseline glass. It has a pressed pattern both inside and out. But it's a little odd. I don't know how well it shows in the photo, but the bowl slumps pretty noticeably on one side and the crimping has a couple of uneven places that can be seen in the other photo. Are those types of flaws considered normal for the time or is there an explanation?

    This is their Alaska pattern.It is also considered a rose bowl.Imperfections are not uncommon in early glass and this piece is from the 1890s I believe.
    Very beautiful piece!! I bet she really pops under blacklight !!

    Thank you for the information. I knew it was a rose bowl, but had not heard of the pattern name. I've seen many of the general type online but never one with a crimped top like this one.

    I hate to Disagree with you Hedgewalker but this is actually a Dugan Button Panels Spooled Glass Rose bowl with a Tight Crimped Top

    Its alright! American Opalescent and Carnival Glass is basically the only place where I can help people! My Cased and Applied Glass Collection... I'm not 100% on any of their origins!

    I understand Dugan and Northwood are closely related. I have some info to research now.

    Thanks to Shawn186 and Hedgewalker, I researched and got a date range of 1900 to 1907, manufacturers of the Button Panels pattern: Northwood, Dugan, Cowdersport Tile.
