About Northwood's Grape and Cable

This long running pattern with a cable that has grape vines, leaves and grape clusters hanging from it was made in the highest number of shapes in carnival glass. There are many molds that have variations on the pattern (stippled, additional leaves/tendrils, different back patterns) giving a collector a tremendous amount of choice. Many of the shapes came in a limited amount of colors, while others were made in a long list of colors.
This pattern is pictured in the 1910 Butler Bros Catalog and was advertised thru 1918.

Grape & Cable has been reissued by many companies and has fakes as well. (see fakegnc)

There are also some interesting whimsies and variants in the Grape and Cable pattern.

The reported shapes include:
