It's by Northwood and the color is called green opalscent, sorry I don't know the pattern or value. Very pretty!

The color could be vaseline opalscent, hard to tell with black backdrop. People tend to pay a bit more for vaseline glass.

It's called Ruffles and Rings. Originally a Jefferson pattern. Made 1906 & after.
My 10 year old book has a value of around $50. Made by Northwood.

Thank you very much CountryGardens with your help I was able to go to ebay and find others who had similar bowls and get more info.

Here is what one seller had posted for info about a similar bowl: "In 1896 Harry Northwood opened his first glass plant in Martin's Ferry Ohio then went to Indiana and another plant in pennsylvania to open the Northwood glass company. In 1902 he bought the Hobbs and Brockunier glass factory and purchased molds from the Jefferson glass co. One of the patterns in these molds was called RUFFLE and RINGS. Jefferson made a simular design in ruffles but northwood made it in a crimped edge as well in ruffles. Northwood used this pattern mostly in carnival in 1908 but he also made it in opalescent before 1908." It looks like the openning bids for this bowl are at $25. I'll try to find out what the bowls eventually sell for and post the results in a week or two.

Thank you both again,

Deborah
