I found this lovely Northwood Amethyst Stippled Carnival Glass Grape & Cable Biscuit/Cookie/Cracker Jar at my late aunt and uncle's home. But, I don't know much about it except from what I've learned about the pattern and color etc....from a few sites.
I don't know a great deal about glass....I know Van Briggle Pottery !
It has a thumbprint bottom edge and is a brilliant electric/iridized amethyst with a marigold glow irridescence.
N is embossed inside the bottom of the jar.
Measures approx. 7 1/8" tall and 5 3/4" wide.
I've Googled several sites but I can't find a jar of this size. I've found powder jars; spooners etc..... Just wondering, if anyone has any info. about this item.
Was this an earlier piece; is it rare ????
Thank you, in advance. for any kind assistance !
