I’ve seen this pattern only a handful of times and each example I’ve seen was better than the last. This bowl is no exception and is of the highest quality. I’ve always attributed this pattern to Meriden because of the styling of the motifs – particularly the hobstars. This bowl is unusual in that it has 8 lobes.
This pattern has a central cross of tiny, but perfectly cut hobstars. AS the cross extends to the edge of the bowl, they meet a larger, clear button hobstar surrounded by fans. On the other lobes of the bowl there are even larger clear-button hobstars. Looped around of these hobstars are bands of tiny, detailed hobnail.
This pattern adapts itself particularly well do the blowout shape and the blank is of the highest clarity. It measures 10″ wide and 2″ tall. This is one of the most magnificent unknown patterns of the Brilliant Period.
