Interesting Straight Sided Banana Bowl – Elmira? – SOLD
This straight sided Banana bowl is quite unusual in that the blank shape is singular. The straight sides and falired out edges really set it apart from the pack. This pattern looks like the work of Elmira but I haven’t found the pattern in their catalog.
This pattern has tons of movement to it. The different motifs seem to loop around like a roller coaster and the sheer amount motifs is impressive. One motif is an oblong shaped hobstar situated in a vesica of crosshatching. The next motif is a richly cut hobstar perched atop parallel miters divided by a clear scallop. Each loop in the pattern seems to link to a band of cane that surround a central hobstar.
The bowl is in perfect condition and measures 10 1/4″ long ,5 7/8″ wide, and 4 3/8″ tall. The blank is figured but is quite clear and vibrant.
