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 green "Rosette" bowl from Northwood is sure to please with perfectly pressed detail on the inside and out. A beautiful "Rosettes" pattern decorates the interior of the bowl while the pleasing "Ruffles and Rings" displays as a secondary exterior pattern. The bowl has a gently scalloped smooth edge and sits atop three lovely scroll feet. The iridescence is a wonderful pallet of blue, rose, bronze, purple and gold. The piece measures 7 1/2" across, 3 3/4" in height and is marked with an "N" within a circle on the bottom of the interior. There are cracks, chips or repairs; near mint.
