Unusual Bowl with Colonial Edge – SOLD
This is a particularly unusual piece. The pattern is nearly a cross between Taylor Brother’s Bellevue and Hawkes Nautilus. In addition to being like Bellevue, there is a similar edge treatment with no serrated teeth. For these reasons, I’d have to guess this piece was made by Taylor Brothers. I’ve only ever seen this pattern one other time, on a deep bowl I sold.
The bowl consists of three interlocking circles. These three circles contain a highly stylized for of pinwheel. Where the circles intersect, there are 3 vesica of cane cutting. As if they didn’t have enough motifs, the circles are also topped iwth hobnail. Resting between each of the three circles is a perfeclty shaped hobstar and a band of crasshatching. It’s an absolutely singular pattern to say the least!
The bowl is in perfect condition and measures 9 1/4″ wide and just under 2 1/2″ tall. The blank is exceptionally clear and heavy.
