This beautiful icy blue opalescent Leaf and Beads Tricorner candy bowl was made by the Northwood Company, and the pattern dates as far back as 1905. The same Leaf and Beads pattern was used for several different shapes. This one has three looped twig feet that resemble branches with a flat toe on the bottom of each for stability. The outside base of the bowl has molded overlapping leaves with each one pointing to rows of vertical beads. The beads, in turn, form panels to frame the opalescent pointed tips that dip and roll around the rim. Each of the twig feet continues up the side of the bowl shortening the row of beads above it. The leaf design is truly lovely when looking down into the bowl from the top.
This bowl is 8-1/4 inches in diameter and 3-3/4 inches tall at the three highest points.
Made by Northwood circa 1905, it is not marked.
There is a pinhead nick, commonly called a fleabite, on the tip of one of the uppermost points. This shows up as a dark spot and looks more pronounced in the photo than it really is. There are three other specks of dark spots that are inclusions within the glass. The handwritten identification sticker on the bottom of the foot will remain, as found. There is no other damage to this gorgeous century-old piece.
