This is an elegant, rare, antique (1909) glass whimsey bowl with "three sides up" in the Hobstar and Feather pattern, the first pattern produced by the Millersburg Glass Company.
Very Brief History on Millersburg.  John Fenton, brother of Frank Fenton of Fenton Art Glass Co., founded Millersburg Glass Company in Millersburg, Ohio in 1908.  Millersburg Glass produced such patterns of glass as Ohio Star, Country Kitchen, Hobstar & Feather, and many others in its short life span -- Millersburg Glass folded in the summer of 1912.


Condition. 
The bowl is in excellent condition with no chips, cracks, chippers, or flea bites.  The saw tooth edge is perfect.
