Rarity – Libbey Grand Prize Carafe – SOLD

Good luck ever finding another example in this pattern. Not only is Libbey’s Grand Prize on of their rarest, but it’s also one of their most desirable. I’ve only ever seen a handful of pieces in this pattern and every owner was still ecstatic about having the chance to own a piece. In 2008, a pitcher in this pattern sold for $15,000 at auction and a flower center recently sold for over $20,000. The carafe is signed on the base by Libbey.

Aside from the incredible cutting on this piece, the design is equally impressive. It is perpetual in that it wraps seamlessly around the perimeter of the carafe. The first section of the pattern involves an unusual six sided hobstar formation. It’s surrounded by crosshatching and topped vertically with cane cutting. A large loop of clear button hobstars engulfs the formation and weaves over a band of cane. This band of cane engulfs a large, ovoid hobstar. Divided only by clear-button hobstars. Sitting between the two bands is a fanned formation featuring one flat hobstar, crosshatching and fans. The base houses a fanned star and the entire neck of the carafe is finished with large scallops (not quite punties) and crosshatching.

The carafe is in nearly perfect condition and on the most gorgeous of blanks. It measures . Again this is probably the only chance you will have to own a piece in this pattern so don’t wait - someone is going to snatch it up!
