Penny & Gentles, Northwood

Tom Mordini introduced this double handgrip plate to the carnival community in 2000. It is one of two pieces known in the pattern; the other is a flat plate. Both are amethyst. The lettering under the name says, "Broadway and Morgan." The exterior is plain, unusual for Northwood advertising pieces.

This one sold at the 2014 Heart of America Carnival Glass Association convention auction for $9,500. Photo courtesy of Seeck Auctions.
