Feathers Vases, Northwood

Hartung Book Two: Feathers

Updated 1/23/2021

Not a particularly dramatic vase; only the rare colors bring much of a price--and many simply have very weak or irregular iridescence. The pattern is characterized by alternating panels of smooth areas and herringbone-type ribs. The base is 3 1/2 to 3 3/4 inches, some with a multipoint star. Heights vary between 6 and 11 inches. Squatty vases, those under 7 inches, may be worth a bit more. Some vases have what Northwood called Alaskan finish; marigold iridescence on the top one-third or so (see photo). Vases with Alaskan finish tend to be worth a bit less than those with marigold top to bottom. A scarce pattern.
