Spectacular Dorflinger Silver Lidded Jar – SOLD
This is one of the best pieces I’ve ever had the chance to offer. I have seen this pattern referenced as Dorflinger multiple times but cannot find a single reference now. I have never seen a jar with a glass lid with a silver handle/topper.
The pattern consists of two geometric chains made up of jeweled-center hobstars and four cornered formations featuring cane. In between the two chains is beautiful rock-crystal style engraving which wraps around the entire piece. Step cutting runs all the way up until it’s met with the most gorgeous silver collar. The collar is covered in the most spectacular flowers and even has a spot open left for a monogram. The step cutting continues onto the lid which is met with a ball style handle. The handle is decorated in the exact same flowers as the collar and just sets off the entire piece. The base of the jar has a 24-split point hobstar, which Dorflinger saved for some of their finest pieces.
This piece is massive – in fact, much bigger than many humidors I’ve seen. It measures 9 3/4″ tall and 6″ in diameter. The glass interior lip has a few tiny chips on it from when someone set in the lid, but other than that, the jar is in pristine condition. The blank is beautifully clear and compliments all the difficult work that went into making a piece like this. This is a piece fit for the most advanced of collections. True “museum quality.”
