Hawkes Rock Crystal Cologne Bottle
This cologne bottle truely exemplifies what rock crystal can be at its best. Both the stopper and bottle are signed Hawkes and I believe the silver is marked Gorham (photo included)
Since it’s primarily realistic work and there isn’t much technical language for engraving, I will let the pictures do the talking. The copper-wheel engraving is stellar and I particularly like the clear tusk/engraving combination. It makes the piece look like a suspended state of falling water. The St. Louis Diamond only adds to the elegance of this bottle.
The piece is in perfect condition except for a few tiny nicks to the base of the stopper. The cologne measures 7 1/4″ tall by 5″ wide and is quite heavy for it’s size – a very thick blank.
