Roseglobes over 6″ in diameter are extremely scarce. This imposing one, by Libbey, is cut in their Harvard pattern. The Harvard pattern is one of Libbey’s early designs and is completely wood-wheel polished to mirror-like perfection.
The Harvard pattern is made up of two main, diamond-shaped motifs. The first of these is a field of strawberry-diamond cutting. The other is a miter bordered field of crosshatching. These two fields sit atop some fully cut fans. The base of this roseglobe has a beautiful 10-point hobstar. The rim is notched. The cutting on this piece is extremely deep and highlights what Libbey was capable of achieving early on.
The roseglobe is in perfect condition and measures 8″ wide and 6 1/8″ tall. The blank is extremely thick, heavy and clear and a perfect form for the pattern.
