Here's a pretty Northwood Fruits and Flowers Basketweave Plate in Custard Glass with their signature Nutmeg Stain. In a pale custard glass that Northwood called Ivory, this plate is done in the sought after Fruits and Flowers variant with a stippled background and three inward pointing leaves in the center bottom of the plate. A raised pattern of three fruits including a trio of cherries, two pears, and a pair of peaches weaves around the inner slanted rim. Backed by raised leaves with inconspicuous waving flowers tucked among them, the fruits stand out against the brown nutmeg stain. The reverse of the plate has a basketweave pattern. It is tempting to call this a bowl due to the deep sides that are finished with a sawtooth edge, and it would make a nice presentation for candies or other small treats.
This plate measures 7-1/2 inches in diameter and the gradual slope of the rim rises 1-5/8 inches high off of the table.
Made by Northwood circa 1914 to 1920, the plate is marked with Northwood’s embossed, underlined N in a circle on the bottom.
There is old sticker residue on the underside. The nutmeg stain on the fruit is worn, but whether by design or from use is uncertain. There are no chips or cracks.
