Wishbone, Northwood

With it's overlapping wishbone shapes, this pattern is easy to spot. Two different sized molds were used to make bowls and plates. The smaller mold, with 8-9 inch ruffled bowls and 9 inch plates, has a scroll footed base and exterior pattern called Ruffles and Rings. The tricorner whimsies were also made from this mold. The collar based bowls, with Northwood's basketweave back, are a bit larger; 9 to 10 inches. The plates made from this mold are considered chop plates as they are 10 inches across. Blue is scarce, or nonexistent, in most shapes in this pattern.

The epergne in Wishbone, like other epergnes, often suffers from damage around the hole where the lily is inserted, or to the base of the lily itself--either of which can reduce the value.
