Fruits and Flowers, Northwood

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

Fruits & Flowers is similar to Northwood's Three Fruits that is seen only in plates and bowls. Both have the same three fruits arranged in the same way, but Fruits & Flowers lacks any pattern in the center (excepting the rare variant seen on the right). You can confirm the pattern by looking for the small flowers that curl in toward the center from the fruit spray. Above left is a typical plate, at right is the variant with three leaves pointing toward the center with stippling behind them. There are no chop plates, but new examples of a similar design exist.

The footed bonbon is the most frequently seen item in Fruits & Flowers. Because it is stemmed, it is occasionally identified as a two-handled compote. Some of the amethyst bonbons are found with a plain exterior rather than basketweave and are more desirable. Aqua opal is a fairly common color in these bonbons. The bonbons were reproduced by Fenton in amethyst.
