DRAPERY: Northwood is known to have produced a full spectrum of functional shapes for table use in opalescent glassware. A berry set, table set and waterset were available. Tumblers, a small berry and this spooner; all in white iridescent finish are the only examples reported in iridized finish, along with rosebowls in marigold, amethyst, green, cobalt blue, white, ice green, ice blue, Renninger blue, aqua opalescent, lavender. Vases: marigold, amethyst, green, cobalt blue, white, ice green, ice blue, aqua, teal, lime green, aqua opalescent, sapphire blue. Candy dish: marigold, amethyst, green, cobalt blue, white, ice green, ice blue.

Beads in Amethyst.

BEADS: This Beads design is one of the earliest used by Harry Northwood to create carnival glass, dating to 1908-1909. Already in production for non-iridized crystal and colored glass to include berry and table sets, water set and various other bowls and plates, the pattern was called Pods & Posies. When applied to iridized carnival glass, the pattern is confined to the exterior of 7”-9” bowls having an unpatterned interior. Marigold, amethyst, and green are the known colors.

 Electric Blue Bushel Basket.

BUSHEL BASKET- 8-sided-flared: Bushel Baskets were produced over a span of time extending from 1910 to the early 1920s in both iridized and non-iridized form. Fewer colors are found in this eight-sided version than in the round form. Known colors: marigold, amethyst, green, cobalt blue, lavender, white, ice blue, ice green, horehound, Renninger blue, aqua. Some amethyst baskets have a plain handle.

Peach and Pear Intaglio bowl.

PEACH & PEAR Intaglio - 5” sauce:  You will find the 10 ½” ice cream shape in Northwood- Part 6 . Rather than the usual raised pattern surface, these intaglio examples have the pattern deeply impressed on the underside. The result provides a rather thick and heavy piece of glass! There is a Strawberry Intaglio  design which, as yet, we have not been able to provide for viewers. ALL of these examples are rather scarce in today’s world of collecting, indicating a short production run.


CHERRY Intaglio: This pattern closely resembles Northwood’s Cherry & Cable pattern. Marigold is the only reported color for the Intaglio line and only occasionally is an example found having the Northwood trademark! Intended berry sets, 10”-10 ½” and 4 ¾ ”-5” ice cream shaped bowls comprise the offering.

Dean & Diane Fry, Aug. 2013

To get into heaven, it’s who you know that counts.
Now this is the commandment, and these are the statutes and
judgments which the Lord your God has commanded to teach you,
That you may observe them in the land which you are crossing over to possess,
That you may fear the Lord your God, to keep all His statutes and His commandments which I command you,
You and your son and your grandson, all the days of your life, and that your days may be prolonged,
Therefore hear, O Israel, and be careful to observe it, that it may be well with you,
And that you may multiply greatly as the Lord God of your fathers has promised you-----
“a land flowing with milk and honey,”
Hear, O Israel: The Lord our God, the Lord is one!
You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength.
And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart.
