This is a particularly unusual shaped flower center by the craftsmen at J. Hoare & Co. It is cut quite well in their Heron pattern. The Heron pattern is seldom seen – this is probably only the third example I’ve come across.
Twenty four point hobstars are fit themselves into a hexagonal field. These hobstars are divided on either side by a triple-miter framed field of crosshatching. Fans top off each of the large hobstars like a christmas tree. The very thick neck has a wonderful sweeping curve to it and is fluted with a three parallel lines banding the neck. The base is finished with a lovely rayed star.
The clear blank is free of any flaws and measures 11″ wide and 6 1/2″ tall. It’s an impressive piece for your collection, dining room table or side buffet and a rare pattern to boot!
