This is my favorite shaped compote blank – a heavy, paper-weight petticoat base compote done by Libbey. It is cut in their Princess pattern – an early pattern that is often unsigned as a result of the years produced.
The Princess pattern is an exercise in classic cut glass design. Two main panels alternate with one another and are separated by fan cutting. The first panel is made up of three sections of crosshatching and one section of an unusual and very Libbey crosscut. The other type of panel is made up of strawberry-diamond cutting. Under each of these fields is either deep miters or additional crosshatching. The neck of the piece is faceted and notched. The base is finished with an 18-point hobstar.
The piece is in excellent original condition with one tiny fleck at the base. The compote measures 7 1/8″ wide and 4 7/8″ tall.
