Incredible Hawkes? Egginton? Bowl SOLD
This bowl is in a slight variation of Hawkes’ Aberdeen pattern. While it seems obvious that Hawkes cut this piece, I’d also suggest that Egginton may have because they often variated on Hawkes patterns. The only difference between this pattern and Aberdeen is the addition of a clear-button hobstar and two fields of crosshatching surrounding each one.
Six looped vesicas of strawberry diamond are split with one deep miter and meet in the center at a beautifully done hobstar. In between each of these vesicas is the clear-button hobstar and crosshatched fields creating a nice recession to fit even larger hobstars around the perimeter of the piece. The bowl is finished with the typical Hawkes/Sinclaire/Egginton U-notch.
This bowl has an incredible mirror-like wood wheel polishing which not only shows off the clarity of the glass, but also refracts light in the most delicate manner. It is in perfect condition and measures 9 1/4″ wide and 4″ tall.
