Grape Leaves, Northwood

This grape pattern has the design crowded into the center of the bowl. Most bowls are ruffled but an occasional three-in-one edge or eight-sided (left) are seen. The three-in-one edge, almost never seen in Northwood, has prompted some collectors to suspect Dugan as the maker--in spite of the Northwood mark. Carl O. Burns, however, in his 2001 book on Northwood carnival glass, refutes this with a solid argument that the pattern could only have been made by Northwood. The pattern on the reverse is called Blossoms and Palms. Millersburg also made a Grape Leaves pattern, though somewhat different from this one.
