This deeply engraved intaglio set was done in Pairpoint’s Apple pattern. There is one central platter and six individual serving dishes. It is rare to find sets this entirely complete, especially of this quality.
The central tray features two overlapping apples hanging from a branch and surrounded by many leafs and other, smaller apples. The entire border is made up of weaving apples, branches and leaves. The smaller dishes carry the same border and show one apple, gently hanging from a branch. The detail, depth and realistic nature of this intaglio is equal, if not better than many pieces of Tuthill.
Both the tray and the dishes are quite heavy. Each one has a recessed portion and then a lip (where the patter border is displayed). The set is in astonishingly great condition, aside from surface scratching, there is only one chip (can be seen in the first photo on the right) to one of the smaller dishes – all the other pieces are perfect. The platter measures 10 1/2″ wide and 1 1/4″ tall. Each of the serving dishes is 5 1/4″ wide and just under 1″ tall. I’m offering this entire set for a bargain price that you will not likely see any other set of this quality offered for.
