This bowl, cut on a Libbey blank, is done in American Cut Glass Company’s Lillian-Travis Design. This design takes on some beautiful Anderson motifs and I believe a piece in this pattern was found in the former home of William C. Anderson.
The Lillian-Travis pattern combines beautiful geometric cutting with realistic, thistle style cutting. Persian cutting drapes around the edge of the bowl. This Persian is unusual in that it has crosshatching included in the motif. Fans burst both over and under each drape. The rest of the pattern involves thistly, realistic cutting. This cutting is left slightly unpolished which provides a great contrast to the brilliant cutting at both the interior and rim. The center features the often-Anderson used split point hobstar with 32 points.
This 3-lobed blank displays this pattern ideally and measures 9 1/2″ wide and 1 3/4″ tall. It is in excellent condition with only some minor roughness in the pattern.
