POPPY Pickle Dish:  Always a favorite with collectors, we can date production during the 1912-1914  period. Only known in this oval ruffled shape, marigold and cobalt blue are probably the most often seen colors, with amethyst and green following. Next in line for appearance: ice blue, lavender, black amethyst, and white. Rarer still are the aqua opalescent examples. Few are known in marigold over custard, which likely date from 1914-1915 when Northwood revived custard glass and apparently experimented with iridizing a few of these pickle dishes. Occasionally, one is found in non-iridized custard.

POPPY SCROLL:  As revealed here: This 10.5” ruffled Poppy Scroll bowl is from the era of Northwood’s Intaglio Line produced on crystal glass with colored overtones within the design. “Someone” has over-sprayed this example with marigold “to create a one-of-a-kind to hopefully create interest from a carnival glass collector??” …………….Said to be “the only one known”, and that’s probably a very “good thing”!
(NOTE) The original coloration on these pieces is not too difficult to remove with a bit of effort…………in order to achieve this non-factory-produced “oddity”!
More information surrounding this pattern can be found in our NORTHWOOD - Part 1 segment.

BEADS:  This is one of the non-iridized moulds placed into production of the newly introduced carnival glass, to capture market attention, until some new and more appropriate moulds could accommodate the demand in 1908-1909. Another name for the pattern: Pods & Posies; a popular design already in production of crystal and colored ware. The carnival version is an exterior design on 7”-9” bowls having an unpatterned interior. Green is the more frequently found color and usually offers the Alaskan finish. Amethyst bowls are fairly scarce, although none of the examples command a high price. Marigold is the only other color known.

BUTTERFLY Bonbon:  This pattern having a smooth exterior is not terribly difficult to locate in marigold or amethyst. Green will command more intense search, and the smoke is next to impossible! Perhaps only 3-4 exist.
The examples having threaded exterior are scarce enough in marigold and amethyst. To locate a green, cobalt blue……and ice blue, will require time and serious investment! *You can view an ice blue threaded bonbon by clicking on -- B -- in our pattern alphabet.

Rare EMBROIDERED MUMS Bonbon in White.

EMBROIDERED MUMS Bonbon:  While the pattern is widely found in 8”-9” ruffled bowls, even unto ice blue and ice green opalescent, the 9” plates are somewhat a challenge in cobalt, white, or ice green.
The only known examples of this extremely under-rated bonbon were produced in white! It offers the basketweave exterior, and stands on a footed stem……..quite elegant, actually! Production of the pattern dates to the 1911-1912 time period. Perhaps in later years, as interest in carnival glass production waned, white bonbons were the “finale’ of pattern production?”

Dean & Diane Fry, 8/12
Os Guinness writes in The Call that coming of age in the ‘60s was “a bracing privilege.”
No one could take anything for granted.
Thinking people were challenged and taken back to square one. Guinness continues:
*Nowhere was this challenge more plain than in knowing what we believed and why.

……..And the ABC (or “anything but Christianity”) mood of the decade
often meant that any religion was fresh,  relevant, and exciting as long as it was not
Christian, orthodox, or traditional (p.145)

Each generation needs to see the timelessness of the Bible.
A story like Daniel in the lions’ den can become food for thought throughout the rest of our lives.
The Bible isn’t just about telling us what we should do. It’s far more enlightening than that.
Each chapter tells us enough about God and ourselves to show us how to line up with what
He is doing in our world.

The unfolding drama of Daniel can put us in touch with the great timeless purposes of life.
Our focus in times of pressure is all-important. Are we doing desperate things which
harm others in the process?
Or are we most concerned about how our actions will reflect on our God?
In your thoughtful moments, ask God to showcase His presence in your life.
Use these moments to organize the eternal purposes and honor God.
A Life of Courage is defined for us in (Daniel 5:1-31).
