Well-done Hoare Bowling Pin Vase – SOLD
This vase, signed J. Hoare, is a particularly tasteful version of a bowling-pin vase. The pattern fits the piece extremely well and features rich, complex cutting.
One of the main features of this pattern is a unique cluster/hexad of double-mitered hobnail. It is a very flashy motif and is used in some of the finer patterns of the period by Hoare (and Libbey’s Imperial). A large hobstar adorns both the top and bottom of the hexad motif. The other portion of the pattern is comprised of cane, crosshatching, fans, flat hobstars and a little triangular field of clear glass. The base is finished in a rayed star.
The vase is in perfect condition and measures 10″ tall and 4 1/4″ wide. The singular cutting and unique blank really set this vase apart from the pack.
