This roseglobe is cut in Dorflinger’s Parisian pattern. This is the rarer and nicer rendition of the pattern which includes hobstars in the pattern.
The Parisian pattern consists of two main motifs – a field of crosshatching and a field of an upside-down fan. These are surrounded on all sides by notched cutting. The mid-level of cutting features flat hobstars which are deeply surrounded by miters and more notched cutting. The lower level includes fields of full fans. The bottom of the roseglobe is a masterful display engineering. All the miters from the entire perimeter of the piece converge into very deep cutting and surround a gorgeous 16-point hobstar.
The roseglobe is in good but not perfect condition. It has some minro chips throughout the pattern – mainly to the lower portion of the roseglobe along miters. Because of this, it’s not distracting from the piece and does not show when displayed. The globe measures 4 1/2″ tall and 4 2/3″ wide.The blank is what you would expect of a fine Dorflinger product and the cutting is completely wood wheel polished. A great piece at a bargain price.
