This beautiful piece of glass was very likely cut by Straus. In addition to the blank being one used by Straus, most of the motifs on this piece were used by them – particularly the crosscutting (seen on Straus’s Richmond) and the rim treatment.
Huge hobstars drape themselves across the frong of the vase surrounded on either side with a Straus-style crosscut. Both thin and wider, varied notching surround deep scallops cut out of the glass on all sides. What’s perhaps most impressive about the piece is a fully cut in pattern base. While most larger, heavier pieces feature a hobstar or more often a rayed star, this piece has a fully cut base. Four large hobstars are fit into unusual shaped fields. These hobstars are surrounded by much clear glass with continuing miters from the entire pattern – wrapped all around the piece.
The flower center is in excellent condition and is extremely heavy. It measures 12″ wide and 7″ tall.
