Northwood - Part 8
NORTHWOOD - Part 8
GREEK KEY: Bowls having collar base can be ruffled (customarily with eight ruffles), or have a pie crust edge. These 8”-9” bowls are found in marigold, amethyst, green, cobalt blue and ice green. Most offer the Basketweave exterior, but a few rare examples exhibit a Ribbed exterior. Some are signed, some are not.
STIPPLED RAYS: While each of the major manufacturers of carnival glass produced their version of this pattern, Northwood's design was marketed in large quantities beginning in 1909, continuing for several years. Most examples are trademarked. A pie-crust edge amethyst collar based bowl is easily found. A rosebowl shape on the other hand should create an intensive search for any collector! The collar based bowls can either have the Basketweave exterior or be without pattern.
Marigold and amethyst create no difficulty to locate, and green ones are out there in goodly numbers too. Cobalt blue is a scarce color, with white bowls rarely found. Ice blue examples are quite rare, but late in the year 2000, an ice green bowl surfaced in Australia, so that color is the top rarity in this pattern.
WISHBONE Epergne: As a pattern quite popular from its appearance during the 1911-1912 period, continuing in production as late as 1914-1915, the wide variety of shapes remain quite desirable among collectors today.
The lovely two-piece, single-lily epergne is sought after with delight. Exterior offers the Basketweave pattern. The Wishbone design if found on the interior of the base and on the lily. As with all epergnes, finding a perfect one is difficult. There are usually chips on the base of the lily.
None of the colors are easy to acquire. Amethyst and marigold are possibly the most available, with green running next in line. White is rare, with ice blue and ice green even more-so.
