Huge High Shouldered Unger Bros Vase – SOLD
This piece is just cut all over. The amount of motifs are countless and the pattern is nearly indescribable. I don’t often see vases this shape anymore, especially in this size. This exact piece is pictured int he Unger Brothers’ Catalog with the pattern name Claremont.
Large hobstars adorn the top portion of the vase along with fans and crosshatching. Under that portion of the pattern is my absolute favorite part of the pattern-4 fields of fan surrounding a perfectly square hobstar. I can’t think of an example off the top of my head where I’ve ever seen a square hobstar! Under that, well, the pictures will just have to speak for themselves. The pattern is so busy and there are a couple more motifs that I haven’t seen either. The neck of the vase features a perfectly radiant combination of stair cutting and St. Louis Diamond. The base is covered in a 24-point rayed star.
This vase measures in at a very large 17 1/2″ tall and 6 1/2″ wide. The blank is of the utmost water-white quality and there is no damage. The base has a very light stain on the very bottom, but is completely unnoticeable except with extreme scrutiny.
