Harry Northwood was a master colourist, renowned for his fabulous aqua opals and mouth-watering pastel colours. Many of the patterns that emerged from Northwood’s glass works at Wheeling have become iconic – symbolic of the very essence of Carnival. The Peacocks and Rose Show patterns and the delightful Town Pump all epitomise the classic quality and top-notch design associated with Northwood.
Carnival glass is pressed glass with mineral or metallic salts added during the manufacturing process to create the iridescent rainbow of colors it comes in. Carnival glass gets its name from the fact that it was a common prize at carnivals from around 1907 to 1925.
