Northwood - Part 22
NORTHWOOD – Part 22
Northwood Penny and Gentles Double handgrip plate - Amethyst.
PENNY & GENTLES Double Handgrip Plate: Tom Mordini found the first of two known examples in 2000. They are both amethyst and have no exterior design. Apparently Broadway and Morgan is the address.
WILD STRAWBERRY 10 inch Bowl - Ice Green.
WILD STRAWBERRY Ruffled bowls: 9”- 10” examples are known in marigold, amethyst, green, white, ice blue, ice green. ice blue and ice green are quite difficult to obtain. There are (16 berries) in this ruffled, collar base version. No stippling is present. Ice green is rarely seen.
WILD STRAWBERRY Handgrip Plate - Amethyst.
WILD STRAWBERRY Handgrip plates: having (12 berries) are more scarce in marigold than in amethyst and green. Four-three petaled flowers are seen among the leaf design. These are 7”-7 ½” in size. The Basketweave exterior accompanies these pieces, and the Northwood trademark is usually apparent.
WILD STRAWBERRY Variant Handgrip Plate - Amethyst.
WILD STRAWBERRY Vt. Handgrip plate: having only (8 berries) and no leaf design in center. The beautifully iridized example known to be in the Steve and Glen Thistlewood collection is certainly the epitome of “Iridescence is the Essence”! The example of that plate shown here leaves a lot to be desired! It would seem that this design was a “test” piece since so few are known..
Stippled Ice Green STRAWBERRY Bowl - 9 inch.
Stippled Ice Blue STRAWBERRY Plate - 9 inch.
STRAWBERRY 9” Ruffled, stippled bowls: 8”-9” ruffled, stippled examples are found in marigold, amethyst, cobalt blue, lavender, ice green, lime green, Renninger blue, aqua opalescent.
STRAWBERRY 9” Stippled Plates: marigold, amethyst, green, cobalt blue, and ice blue examples are known. None are readily available!

More ruffled bowls are found than those having pie crust edge in 8”-9” size. The 9” plates are known in marigold, amethyst, green, white, ice blue and aqua opalescent. Plates are rare to extremely rare in any color! That said, marigold and green examples remain rare. Only three white plates are known.

YES! That IS a MEMPHIS punch base firmly attached to a 12.75 in. cake plate.
MEMPHIS Tumbler someone did a Number on!
MEMPHIS Ruffled Tumbler and Punch Base/cake plate: If you like this sort of “thing”, it’s an individual choice. The plate appears to be from the Depression Era?
Someone re-heated the tumbler in order to “ruffle it”!
Lime Green MEMPHIS Punch Cup.
MEMPHIS Punch Cup: Matching punch bowl/base and fruit bowl - base having cups to match are known in marigold, amethyst, green, white, ice blue, and ice green.

MEMPHIS Berry Set in Marigold.
MEMPHIS Berry Set: Marigold and amethyst sets, along with an (aqua opalescent master berry bowl) known in this design. This lone example in aqua opal sold in 2000 for $6,000.00—including its crack!
The Memphis pattern was in production during the non-iridized crystal and colored ware available in 1908 when the iridescent era began. Memphis is one of the very few “cut” patterns within the Northwood line.
Dean & Diane Fry, April 2014
I lift up my eyes to the hills----
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot slip—
he who watches over you will not slumber;
indeed, he who watchers over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.
the Lord watches over you—
the Lord is your shade at your right hand;
the sun will not harm you by day,
nor the moon by night.
The Lord will keep you from all harm---
he will watch over your life,
the Lord will watch over your coming and going
both now and forevermore. (Psalm 121)
