Nearly all carnival glass collectors have heard of Northwood’s Grape and Cable. Nearly all of the pieces in this pattern will be marked with an N in a circle. This photo shows three pieces of Grape and Cable, all in different colors. There is a marigold powder jar, a green (almost emerald green) hatpin holder and a purple or amethyst spooner from the table set. These are the colors that you see most often in this pattern, but each of these has very nice color, which, of course, comes from the iridescence. There are many other shapes and colors available.
