Cute Cologne in Hawkes’ Venetian Pattern SOLD
This adorable cologne is in Hawkes’ Venetian pattern. The Venetian pattern is quite old and unsurprisingly, this piece is unsigned. The Venetian pattern is precisely cut and completley wood wheel polished to the utmost of accuracy.
The outer layer of the Venetian contains a chain of 8-point hobstars. Each hobstar has a field of fans in between it’s point and a smaller, clear-button 8-point hobstar on the interior. Fans lie in between each of the larger stars. The center and signature portion of the pattern is made up for 6-looped split-vesicas with the finest of crosshatching – looking like a flower bloom from the base. The stopper is lapidary cut.
This cologne is in excellent condition-it was one microscopic flake to the edge of the lip and a very very tiny and light stain to the base of the interior. This wonderful cabinet piece measures 5 1/8″ tall and 3 1/8″ wide. For it’s size, it has some real heft.
