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.
This gorgeous amethyst "Strawberry" bowl from Northwood, circa 1910, is a popular and well-known Northwood creation. This is sure to please with perfectly pressed detail on the front and back. A beautiful motif of lush strawberries nestled among leafy foliage in the front and great basket-weave design on the exterior. The iridescence is a wonderful pallet of blue, rose, bronze, purple and gold. The bowl measures 8 1/2" across, 2 1/4" in height and is clearly marked with an "N" within a circle on the bottom. There are cracks or repairs, one of the pie-crust points on the edge is missing (see photo). Priced accordingly.
