EMBROIDERED MUMS in Cobalt Blue - 9 inch.
EMBROIDERED MUMS in Ice Green - 9 inch Plate

EMBROIDERED MUMS:  This pattern experienced a rather brief production run (1911-1912). It offers impressive and delicate design qualities which qualify it as “embroidered lace”! Three shapes are known: bowls-either ruffled or with pie-crust edge, 9” plates and the extremely rare stemmed bonbon, only known in white!
8”-9” Bowl; marigold, amethyst, cobalt blue, white, ice blue, ice green, lavender, aqua, aqua opalescent, sapphire blue, lime green opalescent, ice blue opalescent.
9” Plate; cobalt blue, white, ice green
Bonbon, stemmed; (very scarce-rare), white
Overall, the pattern presents itself for purchase only occasionally as compared with many other Northwood patterns. Why are there so few plates, as compared to the color availability of the bowls? The stemmed bonbon has always been underrated for the simple reason that their rarity distinctly qualifies it as “virtually unknown”! Only four bonbons sold at auction during a five-year period. (One of those - out of sight, out of mind patterns!)

A.O. SUNFLOWER Bowl - some foot damage - sold 3-15-11.

SUNFLOWER: This example in aqua opal sold over eBay for the phenomenal amount mentioned under the photo. Found in New Zealand, it likely exemplifies a color/design sold and sent to an area where other colors may not have been available? For instance: Red Plaid bowls have all surfaced in the Western part of Canada.  This is possibly the third Sunflower in A.O. to surface. (Click here and you can take a look at the first of these bowls to have been discovered.)
One marigold plate having spatula feet is known. Other bowl colors: marigold, amethyst, green, cobalt blue, Renninger blue, teal and a “few ice blue”! (NORTHWOOD - JEFFERSON MOLDS  displays a lovely I.B. example.)
An A.O. Sunflower bowl brought $13,000. during the Aug. 13 Wroda Auction in Greenville, OH.

Dean & Diane Fry - 8-11

Now it happened that He went through the grain fields on the Sabbath; and as they went His disciples began to pluck the heads of grain.  And the Pharisees said to Him, “Look, why do they do what is not lawful on the Sabbath?”
But He said to them, “Have you never read what David did when he was in need and hungry, he and those with him: how he went into the house of God in the days of Abiathar the high priest, and ate the showbread, which is not lawful to eat except for the priests, and also gave some to those who were with him?”
And He said to them, “The Sabbath was made for man, and not man for the Sabbath.  Therefore the Son of Man is also Lord of the Sabbath.”  (Mark 2:23-28)
Showbread, as stated in Easton’s Bible Dictionary tells us : “This bread consisted of twelve loaves
made of the finest flour. They were flat and thin, and were placed in two rows of six each on a table in the holy place before the Lord.  They were renewed every Sabbath, and those that were removed to give place to the new ones were to be eaten by the priests only in the holy place….
The number of the loaves represented the twelve tribes of Israel, and also the entire spiritual Israel, ‘the true Israel’; and the placing of them on the table symbolized the entire consecration of Israel to the Lord, and their acceptance of God as their God.”
