Four Pillars, Northwood/Millersburg

[column-half-1][/column-half-1][column-half-2][/column-half-2]

A classic design but still confused with other patterns because of its simplicity. Northwood made Four Pillars in two base sizes: a standard size with a 3 1/8 inch base, and a small size with a 2 7/8 inch base. There is a third size of Four Pillars with a 3 1/4 inch base which is a standard size but from an entirely different mould and believed to be Millersburg, including those with Howard Furniture advertising in the base. Don't settle for a damaged or inferior Four Pillars vase in aqua opal. This is the most frequently found color so there are plenty to choose from. The examples above are one in a Kelly green that sold in 1998 for $900 and an unusually short blue example–just 6 3/4 inches tall.

Above is a most interesting Four Pillars vase that has been whimisied into a candy dish. It is owned by Faith Perrin. First reported in this shape
