RARE Libbey Footed Rajah Cream and Sugar – SOLD
Known pattern, footed cream and sugar sets are a rare commodity – add to that these are in Libbey’s rare Rajah pattern and you’ve got true cut glass rarity. Both the creamer and sugar bowl are signed Libbey on the handles.
The Rajah pattern was one of William C. Anderson’s finest designs and features a lot of his trademark motifs. The beautiful central hobstar has a six point star formed around it whose points are made of clear-button 5-pointed stars. The main hobstar is wreathed by deep valleys surrounded with feathering. The handles are triple-notched and the bases are scalloped and contain 16-point hobstars.
The piece are in perfect condition with hardly a flake to the cutting. There is one horizontal air bubble in the handle of the sugar bowl, but this is not a heat-check or fracture. The sugar bowl measures 3 1/2″ tall and 6 1/8″ wide. The creamer is 4″ tall and 5″ wide.
