Harry Northwood began his career working in the glass industry in England. In 1881. He immigrated to the United States and opened H. Northwood in Wheeling, West Virginia, in 1902. In 1908, shortly after Fenton introduced their iridescent line, Northwood created theirs, calling it "Golden Iris", the color we know as marigold. About this time they added amethyst, cobalt blue, and green. In 1912, Northwood added the colors we call pastel, ice blue, ice green, and white. But Northwood is probably best known for their aqua opalescent glass, which they added around the same time. Harry Northwood died in 1918 and the factory ceased production in the early 1920's.
