This jar is more than impressive – it combines some unique and skilled cutting and a silver top featuring a stag horned handle. The jar is likely made by J. Hoare or even Dorflinger as it features the type of work that they were masters of employing. The jar is wood wheel polished to perfection.
The pattern on the jar combines two swirling motifs. The first motif is deep, precisely cut cane. The second is an enormous clear tusk. The tusk swirl really highlights the clarity of the glass and you can see clearly through each one. The clear tusk is one of the most difficult motifs in the brilliant period. The were cut nearly free-hand and few cutters had the skill to achieve this technique. The silver top’s understated elegance matches the glass perfectly and has a stag horn to use as the handle. The base is finished with 16-point hobstar.
The jar is in perfect condition and measures 8″ tall and 5 3/4″ wide. The glass is of the highest quality, which is necessary for a piece with such wonderful clear tusks.
