NORTHWOOD – Part 25
Amethyst Singing Birds table set.
SINGING BIRDS Table Set: Marigold and green table sets can be viewed by clicking into the Table Set listings. Iridescent production of this pattern dates to 1911. Complete sets are not easily accomplished. The sugar lid features butterflies, while the butter lid only displays birds. This is a point to remember when “piecing together” the required elements in completing a table set.
GRAPE and GOTHIC ARCHES - Marigold.
(Pearlized) - Iridized Custard GRAPE and GOTHIC ARCHES.
GRAPE & GOTHIC ARCHES Table Set: Marigold, amethyst, green and cobalt blue are the “standard” colors. However, occasionally examples of the pattern can be found having a “pearlized custard” finish. Addition of a fired-on gold trim around top edges is also known. Green sets are quite unusual.
PEACOCK at the FOUNTAIN in BLUE.
PEACOCK at the FOUNTAIN in ICE BLUE.
PEACOCK at the FOUNTAIN in MARIGOLD.
PEACOCK @ The Fountain Table Set: Marigold, amethyst, green, cobalt blue, white and ice blue were produced.
PEACOCK at the FOUNTAIN Compote - Green.
Base mould is Hearts and Flowers.
PEACOCK @ THE FOUNTAIN Stemmed Compote: The base mould (Northwood’s #637), which is Hearts & Flowers, displays nicely on these seldom seen stemmed compotes. White, amethyst and marigold examples present themselves more frequently, but cobalt blue and ice green are more difficult to locate. Ice green and ice blue compotes are considered rare. Black amethyst and lime green are known colors. Aqua opalescent compotes top the rarity list, with few known. Three or four green compotes are known to have been discovered in Australia. Ray and Lynne mentioned finding one there in May of 2014.
9 inch IB and White POINSETTIA Bowls. (Scarce to Rare).
POINSETTIA (LATTICE): These 8"-9" three-footed bowls in this design date circa 1912-1914. Iridized examples portray a ribbed exterior. Marigold examples are considered scarce, while amethyst, green, cobalt blue, white, ice blue, horehound and aqua opal are rare to extremely rare! To date, no plate shape has been reported.
9 inch Northwood SMOOTH RAYS Bowl - MEANDER Exterior - Amethyst.
MEANDER Exterior - Northwood SMOOTH RAYE 9 inch Bowl - Amethyst.
SMOOTH RAYS: One of Northwood's earliest designs, dating from 1908-1910. Butler Bros. Catalogs indicate the pattern to be the earliest of iridized examples. The ruffled berry sets in 9"-10" and 5"-6" sizes are found in marigold, amethyst and green. Exterior pattern is MEANDER. The Northwood N is found on each example.
Paneled Holly bonbon.
PANELED HOLLY: Dating from the earliest carnival glass production, circa 1908 in non-iridized form, there is a scarcity of pieces known in carnival glass! An amethyst water pitcher, one creamer and one covered sugar are known in amethyst, along with a single known spooner in marigold. A two-handled bonbon formed from a spooner mould are available from time to time in green; usually having the Alaskan iridescent treatment. Marigold and amethyst examples surface from time to time. All known examples display the Northwood trademark.
Dean & Diane Fry, Dec. 2014
But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.
For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer,
he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror,
for he observes himself, foes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was.
But he who looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it,
and is not a forgetful hearer but a doer of the work, this one will be blessed in what he does.
If any one among you thinks he is religious, and does not bridle his tongue
but deceives his own heart, this one's religion is useless.
Pure and undefiled religion before God and the Father is this:
to visit orphans and widows in their trouble, and to keep oneself unspotted from the world.
My brethren, do not hold the faith of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Lord of glory, with partiality.
