Tuthill was one of the top engraver’s of the Brilliant Period, but what has become the most desirable form by the New York based company, is the combination of deep intaglio and geometric cutting. This pitcher is a perfect example of the most crucial part of what’s left of the Tuthill legacy.
The Primrose pattern combines Tuthill’s deep realistic work, with brilliant geometric cuts. Primrose flowers literally climb up the side of the pitcher and are divided by panels of hobstars and crosshatching! It’s a striking contrast between the two best parts of the Brilliant Period.
The pitcher is signed and in perfect condition. It measures just under 8 3/4″ tall and is 5 1/2″ across the bottom. This blank is very clear and not at all gray like some other blanks associated with Tuthill’s work.
