1911 Butler Bros. Ad:  揤ineland?was still being used as the marketing name for Grape & Cable, although it had been in production since 1910.
For more than 40 years of collecting, this pattern has been synonymous with Northwood; the most consistently popular over the field of collecting desires, and certainly offering wider variety of shape than most other patterns! More than 70 different shapes were successfully  marketed, along with some 搘himsey?type offerings, which are always attractive to buyers.

BERRY SETS: Are found having large raised thumbprints around the lower portion. Pattern is found on the exterior surface. Large bowl is 10?- 10 ½? small bowl - 5?6? Amethyst and marigold are standard, with green more difficult to locate. Cobalt blue is scarce, pearlized custard is rare, and ice green is very rare.

Ruffled sets have the pattern on the interior. Shaped from the same mould used for the ice cream set, they have no thumbprints. Exterior design is Basketweave. Large bowl measures 11?- 12? small bowl is 5? 6? Amethyst and marigold are seen most often. Green is more difficult; cobalt blue is scarce. White, ice blue, and ice green are rare indeed.

1918 Butler Bros. Ad: Confirms use of carnival glass items to promote sale of hollow ware. Notice the large bowl sitting in the handled basket, as well as an ice cream bowl atop a metal base, forming a 揷ompote?

11?Ruffled BOWL: is from the same mould used to create the large size ice cream bowls. Marigold, amethyst, green, lavender, ice blue, ice green and cobalt blue are possible colors. It is safe to say that there are more ice cream bowls than those which have been ruffled as this white example.

ICE CREAM bowl, large, 10? 11? Collar based with Basketweave exterior. Round, shallow, nearly flat with plate-like feature having only the edge turned up 1?-2?all around. Quite desirable among collectors! Marigold, amethyst and white are not difficult to find. Green or lavender are not so easily located. Cobalt blue is rare, with ice blue and ice green quite rare.

ICE CREAM bowl, small,  5? 6? Pattern and shape characteristics match the larger bowl. Exasperatingly difficult to locate in any color. Marigold, amethyst, green, cobalt blue, white, ice blue, and ice green examples are known.

GRAPE & CABLE ruffled hat from a tumbler - Amethyst

TUMBLER Whimsey - (hat): The flare on these will vary somewhat, giving rise to  the question of whether the taller 4 ¼?size tankard tumbler having a more widely flared top edge than the standard size tumbler,  was used for these whimseys? If that is that case, it presents good reason that it is so difficult to locate tankard size tumblers in marigold, amethyst, green and ice green.

Dean & Diane Fry - 10/07

Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praised her.  ~~~Proverbs 31:28

Susannah Wesley spent one hour each day praying for her 17 children. In addition, she took each child aside for a full hour every week to discuss spiritual matters with him or her. No wonder John and Charles were used of God to bring blessing around the world.

Here are a few rules she followed in training her children:

Subdue self-will in a child and work together with God.
Teach him to pray as soon as he can speak.
Give him nothing he cries for and only what is good for him if he asks for it politely.
To prevent lying, punish no fault that is freely confessed, but never allow a rebellious, sinful act to go unchecked.
Commend and reward good behavior.
Strictly observe all promises you have made to your child
~~~ Henry Bosch

The virtues of mothers are visited on their children
~~~ Dickens ~~~
