Large Bowl in Hawkes Cairo – SOLD
Hawkes’ (signed) wonderfully busy Cairo pattern adorns this square bowl The glass is quite thick and heavy on this one and exceptionally brilliant!
The Cairo pattern consists of 4 central vesicas. Thes vesicas are first made up of one loop of split vertical notching. The next loop in the progression features fan-filled cane topped with a brilliant hobstar. In between each of these four vesicas are even large hobstars which almost seem to shoot from the center.
I can’t find a single fleabite on this bowl and there is hardly a scratch either. It measures just under 9″ wide and 2 3/4″ tall. Again this one is on a beautiful, heavy blank!
