This fantastic pitcher was cut by J. Hoare and showcases several difficult techniques, from forming the unusual shaped blank, cutting clear tusks, and rock crystal engraving. It is also mounted with a Tiffany silver top. The exact glass is shown in the Gorham catalog reprint by the ACGA.
Clear tusks and notching extend down the length of most of the pitcher. They meet an unusual, 6-sided, almost blown-out, base featuring some very fine rock crystal engraving. The handle is fluted and notched in typical Hoare fashion. The base is finished with a rayed star.
The blank is crystal clear – making both the cutting and engraving look like icicles. The pitcher is in excellent condition and measures
