Large roseglobes are an uncommon item out of the brilliant period. This one, cut in the Monarch pattern by J. Hoare, is a wonderful example.
The Monarch pattern in this example contains two very large stacked hobstars. These hobstars are divided by two triangular field of crosshatching. The distinct motif of the pattern consists of a flat hobstar, a large, 8-pointed star, and additional crosshatching. All of this cutting tops of Monarch’s signature element- a pointed field of crosshatching with a deep, clear cut up the center of it.The base is finished in a rayed star and the top is notched at the edge.
I cannot stress enough how high of a quality this blank is. It’s exceptionally clear and the cutting refracts light from every polished surface. It’s a marvel to look at and behold – the piece is quite large and particularly well done. It measures over 7 1/4″ in diameter and nearly 6″ tall. It’s in perfect condition with barely a fleabite to the cutting.
