I wish I could find a reasonable way to convey this bowls size. It is enormous in every way, both very deep and very wide. The shape, is one of a swirled blowout and extremely pleasing to the eye. I have seen this blank signed Hawkes, but I’m guessing this piece is too early to be signed. It was terribly difficult to photograph, but each portion of the bowl, both the clear and busy Russian, has it’s own pocket blown out in the glass. It’s really an incredible piece – so much movement for what is really a completely stationary piece of glass.
The traditional Russian pattern swirls around this bowl divided by a clear channeled cutting. The rim treatment is very cool in that each pocket is separated by the serrated edge, like leaves. The swirling motif surround a brilliant 24-point hobstar.
Now read this carefully and get our your tape measure to gain some perspective – the bowl is nearly 11″ diameter and 4 1/2″ tall. It’s larger than all forms of this type I’ve seen. It’s in perfect condition and will wow anyone looking its way.
