Northwood Cranberry Opalescent Daisy & Fern Figural Pickle Castor:
NORTHWOOD CRANBERRY OPALESCENT DAISY & FERN FIGURAL PICKLE CASTORMade by Northwood at Indiana, PA, circa 1895, this pattern is shown on page 82 figure 339 in Heacock’s “HARRY NORTHWOOD THE EARLY YEARS 1881 - 1900” It sits in a DERBY SILVER CO. Quadruple Plate frame. The insert measures 3 ½” tall, 2 ½” across the base and it has a 3 ¾” diameter at its widest point. It is made in the “Parian Swirl” mold in Cranberry Opalescent in the Daisy and Fern pattern.
The cranberry color is striking, the opalescent pattern is bright and well defined and the mold is fully defined. This insert is in virtually mint condition, with only a no-mention “pinprick” and tiny burst bubble on the inside of the rim that do not show with the lid on. The lid does not fit securely on the insert. The frame is decorated with applied leaves and owl on the handle, florals on the base and an embossed fleur-de-lis design on the 4 feet. It measures about 11 ¾” tall and about 5 ¾” across at its widest point. I have not attempted to polish it, but the plating looks to be intact. The vintage tongs are highly ornate and measure just about 6” long.Please see the pictures and thanks for looking.
