||The chop plate shown above is huge--14 inches across. The front pattern appears to be almost identical to Northwood's Fruits and Flowers, though much larger. The back pattern is unlike that of the Northwood pieces. This one is in black amethyst and has a logo that could be mistaken for the Northwood "N." It was, however, made by L.G. Wright. The amethyst bonbon at the left is shown in a 1973 Fenton catalog, though this example has no mark--and I don't know if it ever had. Note how the handles seem to be partly filled in--a possible way to tell these from the originals. A purple one and an amberina one, both marked Fenton, sold at a live auction in 2004 for $30 each.
