Massive Tuthill’s Rex Variant Bowl
Tuthill’s Rex pattern is easily one of the most desirable patterns of the period. This slight variation is absolutely incredible. The blank of the bowl is not only extremely thick and heavy, but also a particularly unusual shape. It’s a combination between a round, oblong, AND fold-over bowl. It’s very impressive to say the least.
The central, flower-like connection of 12 vesicas of cane immediately draws your eye into this intense pattern. The pattern seems to continue to bloom forth from this flower. A chain of hobstars, housed by notching, triangular fields and crosshatching, adorn the entire exterior rim of the piece.
This large bowl is in perfect condition save for one area with a horizontal chip to the notched cutting. This very heavy piece measures 10 1/4″ long, 9″ wide, and 3″ wide.
