Hawkes Old Devonshire Cruet – SOLD
This is quite an unusual shaped cruet in Hawkes’ Old Devonshire pattern. I have only ever seen a handful of pieces in this pattern, so I think it’s safe to say it’s quite rare.
The lower portion of the pattern is made up of alternating fields – one with an 8-point star, another with strawberry-diamond cutting. The rest of the pattern is made up of little tiny squares-some with crosshatching, some with full fans, and some with hobstars. The base of the piece is finished with a rayed star and the neck is fluted and notched.
The cruet is 7 1/2″ tall and 3 3/4″ wide and is in perfect condition.
