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 Northwood carnival candy bowl is the Fine Cut & Roses pattern. Northwood made only rosebowls and candy dishes in this pattern and most were made from the same mold; some with a plain interior and others with a patterned interior. This candy bowl has the plain interior with the fine cut and roses pattern on the exterior. The rose, blue and copper iridescence is lovely. Marked "N" within a circle on the interior. The bowl measures 7" across and 3 1/4" in height with no cracks, chips or repairs; some mild wear on the interior.
