Grape and Cable Humidors, Cookie Jars, and Compotes and Sweatmeats - Northwood
The tobacco humidor and cookie or cracker jar are about the same size. The humidor, on the left, has a three-pronged sponge holder on the inside of the lid. These are easily broken off and items with such damage are worth less. The cookie or cracker jar has two handles. Both humidor and cookie jar can be found in stippled versions.

The Grape and Cable covered compote and open compote are both large pieces. The open compote, for example, measures about 10 inches across, and is sometimes referred to as large or giant.

Compote, open: Amethyst/Purple, Green, Lavender, Marigold
Sweetmeat: Amethyst/Purple, Blue, Horehound, Lavender, Marigold, White
Sweetmeat whimsey: Amethyst/Purple
The smaller covered compote is call a sweetmeat. It also has a different shape and foot than the large covered compote. The one shown here is the very rare blue. It appears that Northwood decided they needed a small open compote, so they simply used the base of the sweetmeat and spread it out. It is usually referred to as the sweetmeat whimsey or compote whimsey.
