Neat Cut Glass Knife Rest – SOLD
While most Brilliant Period knife rests were imports or contained very generic work, like lapidary ends, this is a particularly unusual example.
Fields of hobnail cover either end of this barbell knife rest. Each one is divided by crosshatching and either end is topped with a rayed star. I love the cutting on the neck of the rest. The cutting makes it appear that the knife rest’s center is undulating up and down, when really it’s just deep scallops that have been cut out of the glass.
The rest is 5″ long, 2″ tall and in perfect condition.
