Sharp Quaker City Columbia Bowl – SOLD
This bowl, in Quaker City’s Columbia exemplifies what the Brilliant Period is all about – deep, sharp, rich cutting adorn the entire piece.
The Columbia pattern is set up with a large, deep central hobstar. Surrounding this hobstar are clusters of 6 hobstars each. In between each hobstar cluster is a split vesica with sharp hobnail and notched prism. The pattern is a well conceived design that doesn’t leave much empty space on the bowl.
The blank of this bowl is probably the best figured blank I’ve ever seen – very clear, thick and smooth. It radiates the entire spectrum of visible light when shone upon. The cutting is astonishingly deep and sharp. The bowl is in perfect condition and measures 8″ wide and 3 7/8″ tall.
