Three Fruits, Northwood   Updated 6/11/2014    More

Northwood's Three Fruits is extremely popular and rightly so. It has an attractive combination of fruits and foliage and enough variety in edge treatments, backs, colors and base configurations to satisify the most compulsive of collectors. Besides, there is Fenton's version and another by Northwood called Three Fruits Medallion with three leaves in the center (rather than cherries) and a Meander back. A similar Northwood pattern, Fruits and Flowers, has a plain center. Above are a purple pie crust edge bowl (unstippled), and the central part of a stippled marigold bowl. A point to remember with Three Fruits is that the pattern tends to become worn, lessening the value. The pattern was apparently first issued in 1910.*
