This is only the second handled flower center I’ve ever seen. It’s nice to see a riff on an old classic shape.
The pattern on this piece has an unusual set up. Diamond fields of cane are topped with crosshatching which is surrounded by scalloped notching. The handles are triple notched and perfectly annealed. The neck has step cutting up the entire piece. The base is covered with a rayed star. If I had to guess, I’d say this piece was a product of Hoare.
The flower center measures 5 1/4″ tall, 6 1/4″ diameter and 8 1/2″ at the handles. It’s in perfect condition and free of any flaws.
