NORTHWOOD VASES - Part 1
DAISY & DRAPE: Collections of carnival glass having no examples of vases would surely be amiss of some beautiful designs. Pattern collectors realize quickly that unless vases are included in their purchases, many pattern examples would be cast aside. This Daisy & Drape pattern, for instance, is used only on the three-footed vase. The pattern first appeared in wholesale catalogs in the spring of 1912, in company with the Corn vase. Both of these vases are more plentiful in white, a color introduced earlier that year! Shape variations are limited to the edge of the vase. It may be flared outward, slightly turned inward, or pointing straight up. These can each be observed in our display of photos.
Surprisingly, marigold is a difficult color to locate. With some intense search, amethyst, green, blue, ice green, and aqua can be found.
DRAPERY: A nice array of colors are available, but the trick is to locate an example without damage to one or more of the protruding feet! Green examples are probably the hardest to locate. Cobalt blue is not all that easily found. Marigold, white and ice green qualify as “most often seen”. The other colors of aqua, teal, ice blue, sapphire , aqua opal and lime green can be considered more difficult. 5” squat vases have been reported, but the usual size ranges from 7”-9” in height. The Drapery vase first appeared in wholesale catalogs during the 1910-1911 period.
DRAPERY VARIANT: More limited in numbers than the Drapery vase with amethyst, marigold, and cobalt blue the extent of color offerings, production of this vase was during the 1912-1915 time frame. These vases were “swung” to an 8” to 10” height, from the Drapery tumbler mould. A couple of Drapery tumblers in white have surfaced, (Click on ~~~~ in our Alphabet to view a white tumbler.), along with a small berry bowl in white. Perhaps the decision to make a pitcher and large berry bowl never transpired, but rather to use the tumbler mould in creation of a few choice swung vases?
Dean & Diane Fry - 01/08
Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good.
Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another;
Not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord;
Rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer;
Distributing to the needs of the saints, given to hospitality.
Bless those who persecute you; bless and do not curse.
Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep.
Be of the same mind toward one another. Do not set your mind on high things, but associate with the humble.
Do not be wise in your own opinion.
Repay no one evil for evil. Have regard for good things in the sight of all men.
If it is possible, as much as depends on you, live peaceably with all men.
Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is written,
“Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord. Therefore “If your enemy is hungry, feed him;
if he is thirsty, give him a drink; for in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head.”
Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
Romans 12: 9-21
