Good Luck, Northwood
A stroke of genius, the Northwood Good Luck pattern touches on a number of popular themes. These bowls and plates were desirable when first made and continue to be so. There is a wide range of colors as well as stippled and unstippled versions. The back may have either the basketweave pattern or ribs, with an occasion plain back showing up. Above left is a pie crust edged bowl in amethyst, right is a ruffled bowl in blue with stippling. Background stippling covers all but the outer inch or so of the pattern. Some blue pieces have a base that is a bit thinner the most. Beware of faked bowls. The Heart of America Carnival Glass Association has used the theme on souvenir pieces. Fenton also made a pattern by the same name. To view a rare enameled example of Good Luck, click here.

Most Good Luck pieces will have the pattern as shown on the plate at the left. However, there are a few examples in which there are fewer berries, shown on the right. The assumption is that Northwood first produced the pattern in the form on the right (referred to as the "variant") then, after a relatively short run, decided that it needed more detail and added the extra berries. These variants are found in bowls, both ruffled and pie crust edge, and plates. Variants do not seem to bring a premium price. The plates above are courtesy of Betty Cloud.

Shown at left is yet another variation, probably a prototype for the design. It has only the central part of the design and even then, some of the detail is different. A similar piece sold for $2,700 in 2003. Photo courtesy of Pete and Paula Bingham.
