I found this bowl in a Goodwill reject pile. I assume it was there because it lost its value (crack/chip on top edge and a few superficial scratches on the inside). I still found it interesting and brought it home with me. I was going to clean it up (remove what I thought was a polish build-up of some sort) but first did a quick Google search.
I found a similar pitcher and goblet with the same 'stuff' on them. I can't find anything on the history of the set or even a comparable piece bowl (in perfect condition). The bowl is 8" across and appears to have no markings. I'm not sure if the two other online people were correctly calling it Northwood. Both claimed the pattern was rare, but why would it be so rare?
I'm less interested in value (as evident by my picking up a damaged piece of collectable glassware) as I am in history and knowing if it is ok to clean it up?
I haven't collected glassware in a long time and never Northwood specifically, so any information is appreciated. Thank you.
