HISTORY: Harry Northwood immigrated to the USA from England in 1881 and applied for US citizenship in 1886. In 1882-83, Harry Northwood was listed as a glass etcher in Callings Wheeling Director where he was working for Hobbs, Brockunier & Company, Wheeling WV. Northwood glass was made by the H. Founded in Wheeling, West Virginia, in 1901 by Harry Northwood.
He worked for the Hobbs-Brockunier and LaBelle firms in the 1880s before operating his own glass plants in Martins Ferry, Ohio, and Ellwood City and Indiana, Pennsylvania. At the Wheeling factory, Harry Northwood and his brother Carl manufactured pressed and blown tableware and novelties in many colors that are collected today as custard, opalescent, goofus, carnival, and stretch glass. Harry Northwood died in 1919, and the plant closed in 1925.
With the closing of the last Northwood factory, an important era in pressed and nold-blown glass production came to the end. The era probably will never be rivalled in the quality, innovation, and beauty of its glassware for the American table. GENERAL : We try very hard to please our customers.
