This bowl has completely straight, angled sides forming almost a combination between a bowl and a tray. Straus managed to fit the University pattern perfectly on this piece and the edges undulate with the hobstar border of the pattern. It’s quite large and a impressive piece to behold.
The University pattern is made up of a formation of hobstars which comes to eight points. Seven of the hobstars are flat while the central one is deeply cut. The points of the formation are made up of 3 bars of parallel miter cutting. These run between eight deeply cut hobstars. You’ll see the the bowl perfectly mimics these hobstars in shape, providing an impressive and unusual display.
An identical bowl to this one was marked over $1500 at an ACGA convention a couple of years ago. This one is priced significantly less. It’s in wonderful condition with only some small chips in the very corners of the bowl – really hard to find and see. It measures an impressive 10 1/2″ long and over 3″ tall.
