Strictly speaking this is not a rose bowl since it
has a slight lip going vertical. This piece of glass is not
missing anything like a spout or lid. Other pieces in the
Northwood Jewel pattern, have been seen with the top of the bowl bing
flat or no vertical lip. For the sack of identification we have
included on this website.
