Chrysanthemum Base in Rare Non - Opalescent Color

A member found this Rare color for the Chrysanthemum Base shaker. Normally found in opalescent colors of cranberry and canary (or vaseline), speckled finish colors of vaseline and canary (or vaseline). Also, more rarely found in opalescent blue. Northwood Glass Company, circa 1890's.

This find is a clear blue without the opalescent stripes. This pattern is only reported in the literature in opalescent colors of "granite ware" (a speckled finish). This shaker must be considered as a Very Rare Find.

The pattern was named by Peterson. The Lechners list it under Buckeye Glass.
