If you’re looking at this page, you’re surely aware of how great the Queens pattern is. It’s consistently cut on the best blanks and the cutting is always precise, with the honeycomb chains highlighting the blank. What you may, or may not, know is how rare a goblet on this blank is. Most Queens stemware is very late, on very thin blanks which are usually of lesser quality. These however are heavy, brilliant pieces of which I’ve never seen another. All of the stems are signed with the word “HAWKES.”
The queens pattern displays itself in a particularly lovely manner on these goblets. Two hobstars, graduating in size climb the bowl of the stem. Each is divided on either side with a chain of St. Louis Diamond cutting. These punties become virtual lenses multiplying the pattern exponentially when looked through. The neck of the stem is cut with a great amount of detail – tiny notching transforms into much larger notched prism as you travel up the stem. The bases of each stem features a 16-point hobstar.
The goblets are hefty and measure 5 3/4″ tall by 3″ wide. The blanks are phenomenal as one would expect from the Queens pattern. There are 6 goblets and they can be purchased as a group for $2100 or $375 per stem.
