Queens is easily one of Hawkes most popular patterns. It’s readily apparent why – the combination of brilliant cutting and optical, lens-like effect of the punties make the pattern come to life. Add to that the fact that Queens is always cut on the highest quality blanks, and you have a reason for its popularity. This plate is signed directly in the center with the Hawkes trefoil.
The center of the plate contains a sunburst with a 6-pointed star made out of cane surrounding it. Spurring from the sunburst are six chains of graduation hobstars-each one getting larger towards the edge of the plate. Lying between each chain of hobstars, is are connected punties or honeycomb cutting. This cutting provides an opitcal illusion when looking through the glass.
The plate measures 10″ in diameter and is in mint, original condition. The blank is of the absolute highest quality and it makes looking through the clear punty cutting breathtaking. This is the type of piece that will draw an onlooker in. People who know nothing about cut glass will easily recognize the quality and uniqueness of this plate.
