This is a pitcher in Hawkes’ Cambridge pattern. The exact piece is show in in Spillman’s American Cut Glass Industry: T.G. Hawkes and his Competitors on page 203. This piece is signed with the Hawkes trefoil directly under the handle. The pitcher has an unusual shape in that it tapers outward towards the bottom and flares at the top.
The Cambridge pattern is extremely similar to Hawkes Brazilian pattern. In fact, itâ€™s almost a combination between Brazilian and Gladys. Large 8-pointed stars with jeweled centers are surrounded by a plethora of other unique motifs. Split diamond fields featuring crosshatching and fan adorn the top of the pitcher. Large, long fans divide all of the hobstars and extend all the way to the base of the pitcher. The base of the pitcher is covered in a 24-point rayed star. The spout is fluted and notched.
The pitcher is in perfect condition and the glass is of the quality that you’d expect of Hawkes. It measures 10 ½” tall and 3 12″ across the top. Don’t miss the opportunity to own a great pitcher at a very friendly price!
