This is one of the most incredible patterns I’ve ever seen. It combines so many motifs seamlessly and tastefully. Some people seem to think this is a piece of Hoare – the verdict is out. One thing is undeniable, it was one of the nicest, highest quality bowls I’ve ever offered.
Study the pictures carefully – there is a lot going on there. There are two main circular motifs on the bowl – one features a cross cutting with embedded in the relief. The other circle has a clear buton hobstar surounded on al sides by hexagonal fields of hobnail. Amazingly, they’ve managed to fill out the circle with vesicas of crosshatching-usually a very clear sign of a higher quality cut. Notched cutting wraps each circle continuing on to the other one. Sitting in between each circle is tiny Russian cutting which leads to a fan of crosscutting and cane. The center of the bowl is finished with a triple miter trellis with crosshatching framed on three sides by cane, while the other sides border the wrapped notching.
This bowl is in perfect condition and on an extremely thick, heavy blank. It measures a very large 10″ wide and 4″ tall . Bowls like this are not only rare but stunning to look at – one can easily get lots in everything that’s going on, yet take one step back and refocus and you have a wonderful design with perfect execution.
