Bergen’s Columbia pattern is already wonderful, but this piece takes it to an entirely different level. This very large roseglobe embodies so much skill and tasteful design, it’s astounding! Add to that that it’s 8″ in diameter and you have one of the nicest roseglobes in existence.
A large hobstar with a fanned center is displayed prominently on the top portion of the globe. This hobstar is flanked on both sides but one of the largest, clear tusks I’ve ever seen. The clear tusk runs from one clear button eight-pointed star. On the other side of the lower eight-point star the tusk is continued until it reaches four split vesicas. The continuity and sublime nature of the pattern arrangement is incredible. Four more eight-pointed stars fill up the field between the tusks as well. This roseglobe looks wonderful from every angle and thusly, I’ve taken many photos.
The piece is wood-wheel polished to perfection. It traps and radiates light in the most beautiful prismatic effect. The globe is in perfect condition save for some small scuffs to the clear tusks and one tiny fleabite to the crosshatched vesica. It’s extremely large, measuring 8″ wide and 6 1/2″ tall. Large roseglobes like this are rare to start with, but ones with cutting this nice barely exist.
