Gold with red flowers small 'Goofus' glass bowl.
Sparkling 'Goofus' glass bowl with embossed floral design reverse painted. Very little paint loss and the gold looks stunning with the red flowers. The pictures make it look more yellow than gold but it is very difficult to photograph due to the reflections and colours. Measures about 5 1/2" in diameter and 1 1/2" deep. Goes well with the large bowl and platter we also have on sale.
Goofus glass is pressed glass which was decorated with cold, unfired paint in the early 20th century in America by several prominent glass factories. Because it was mass-produced and relatively cheap, it was given as a premium for buying things, awarded as prizes at fairs. It was the first carnival glass, preceding the iridized product we refer to as carnival glass today. The most common colors used were gold, red, and green, with gold usually being the predominant color. The exact origin of the name is unknown, but likely stems from the fact that the painted decoration wasn't very durable and people felt that it was "goofy" or that someone had tried to "goof - us".
