This is one of the best 7″ plates I’ve ever seen. Cut in Hawkes’ Oriental pattern, it’s a meticulous example of what Hawkes was able to achieve in both design and execution. It is signed in the center with the Hawkes trefoil.
The pattern has three fields which feature an extremely unusual hobstar formation, which features thirteen hobstars each! Each of these areas is surrounded on all sides in zippered cutting which runs into a square-off hobstar. The center of the plate features a beautiful cluster of hobstars. The remaining portion of the pattern consists of chains of hobstars and crosshatching separated by notching and additional crosshatching in the teeth.
The plate is on a beautiful blank and is in absolutely perfect condition. It measures 7″ wide. The pattern of this piece is not only incredible, but rare and displays perfectly on a 7″ plate.
