About Linn's Mums
According to Dean and Diane Fry, there are only two of the ruffled bowls known, both in amethyst/purple. They were named after Linn Lewis who uncovered the first one in the early 1990s. The bowl is about 8 3/4″ wide and has the Northwood Ruffles and Rings exterior; it sits on 3 scroll feet. Attribution to Northwood is based on the similarity to their Wishbone footed bowls (which also have the Ruffles and Rings exterior).There is no known date of manufacture, but it must be pre 1926 when Northwood went out of business.A bowl sold at an auction in 2000 for $2,000.
