I think this shape is particularly neat. It very much looks like a flying saucer – almost like a compressed flower center. It looks similar to some Pairpoint work, but I do not know the maker.
This flower center is cut particularly well. Deep hobstars alternate with flatter ones surrounded by a 5-point formation of parallel notches. The neck of the piece is fluted and notched. The entire perimeter of the “flying saucer” is cut with deep punties – like windows from the vessel. The base of the piece is features an extremely well done hobstar with rays surrounding it.
The flower center is in perfect condition and measures 8″ wide, 4 1/4″ tall. A very unique shape to add to your collection.
