This bowl or tray, in Libbey’s Princess pattern, is a particularly unusual blank by the Libbey glass company. This is an early piece, with wood-wheel polish and is therefore, not signed.
The Princess pattern is an exercise in classic cut glass design. Two main panels alternate with one another and are separated by fan cutting. The first panel is made up of three sections of crosshatching and one section of an unusual and very Libbey crosscut. The other type of panel is made up of strawberry-diamond cutting. Under each of these fields is either deep miters or additional crosshathcing. The center of the piece is finished off with a beautiful 16-point hobstar.
This bowl is quite heavy and measures 10 1/8″ at the widest and 2″ tall. It’s in perfect condition save for a few fleabites in the pattern. This is a great opportunity to own a large piece, in a known pattern, for a meager price!
