This orange bowl was most likely designed by William C. Anderson and cut by the American Cut Glass Company. It is in their Standish pattern as named by the Anderson Study Group. The only difference between my bowl and the other pieces seen in this pattern are clear button hobstars. Otherwise, it’s identical.
The Standish pattern is one of the most well designed of the Brilliant Period. Deeply cut circles are the focal point of the pattern and feature a cluster of hobstars. Each of these circles is surrounded by crosshatching and notched prism. The center of the pattern is made up of a cross of diamond-point hexad (one of the most difficult motifs to cut). This cross is met with long, slender bands of cane which extend all the way to the edge of the bowl. In between the cane are richly cut hobstars.
The blank of this orange bowl is remarkably thick and clear. This only highlights the clear circle portion of the pattern further. It measures 11 3/8″ long, 8″ wide, and 4 1/2″ tall. It is in perfect condition.
