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, somewhat rare, Northwood carnival fluted bowl is the "Beads" pattern, sometimes called "Pods & Posies". The exterior only pattern came in seven to nine inch bowls in shades of Marigold, amethyst and green. The pattern design combines three motifs of daisy-like flowers, petalish blooms and beads. This piece has the Alaskan iridescent treatment which is marigold on green glass. Marked "N" within a circle on the interior base. The bowl measures 7" across, 2 3/4" in height and has no cracks, chips or repairs; near mint.
