Spectacular Dorflinger Savoy Roseglobe – SOLD
What a beauty this is?! This is a very large Roseglobe in the rare and seldom seen Savoy pattern by Dorflinger.
The Savoy pattern is made up of four very deeply and accurately cut 24-point hobstars. The hobstars are divided by beading and a vesica featuring a flat hobstar in the top half and a fan in the lower portion. Crosshatching leads to the bottom of the piece where the most fascinating part of this piece is located. It features 8 TUSKS (one of the most difficult motifs of the period) divided by more beading which meet in the center at four fanned fields.
All of the cutting on this piece is wood wheel polished in only the way that Dorflinger could. This smooth and vibrant craftsmanship really makes the Savoy pattern pop. The blank is very heavy and clear and the cutting quite deep, which can be seen in the overhead photo. The globe measures a very large 7″ in diameter and 5 7/8″ tall. It is in near-mint condition with one or two tiny flakes in the pattern. There is also some very minor scratching on the base where the piece rests on the tusks.
