I absolutely adore this piece. The cutting and polish are so well done – completely wood wheel polished, with deep, singular cutting. It’s stunning in every sense of the word. I it’s likely cut by J. Hoare due to the motifs used.
There are countless details in this design. Crisscrossing, modified cane/zipper frames the edge portion of this piece. They interesect at diamond-shaped fans. The interior of each frame is a flat hobstar and somehow, the cutting managed to fit crosshatching into all four corners of the hobstar! Under the upper portion of the design are two huge fields featuring two motifs. One is the deepest possible triple miter cane. Nobs of cane stick out off the surface of the glass framed by triple miter cutting. The other field features a large section of crosshatching with clear leaf-work cut into it. Moving inward on the punchbowl there are 8 large hobstars surrounding a central large hobstar.
The punch bowl is quite large, measuring 12″ wide and a staggering 7 1/2″ deep. It’s in perfect condition with hardly a scratch on it. This piece is a true work of art – it will impress anyone that sees it and is extremely unusual in the most aesthetically pleasing of ways.
