Northwood Glass Company, Grape and Cable Bowl, Green
For Sale I have a Beautiful piece of Carnival Glass made by The Northwood Glass Company of Wheeling, West Virginia. The Shape is a Bowl and the pattern is the ever popular "Grape and Cable". The Bowl measures 2 1/8" tall and is 8 1/2" in diameter. The Bowl depicts Grape Clusters and very detailed Leaves hanging from their Vine supported by a thick Cable. The Base color of this beauty is Green and the iridescence is Outstanding. You can see vivid colors of Gold, Blue, Green and Fuchsia. The backside of the Bowl has a Basket Weave pattern and this also has very strong iridescence. The foot is what is known as a Collar Base Foot. This is an Exceptionally Crisp mold on both the front and backside of this Bowl and is considered an Excellent example. The Bowl is considered to be in Excellent Condition as there are no Cracks, or chips. There is absolutely no Iridescence loss on this piece and I believe it was rarely used. There is a very small nick on the Base that looks like it happened when it was pulled from the mold as it is on a mold seam. This is not visible when displayed and I barely caught it upon examination with a bright light. The Bowl is signed with Northwood's Underlined "N" in a Circle on the underside center bottom. This Bowl was made Circa 1910.
