Deeply Cut Notched Prism Bowling Pin Vase – SOLD
This is one of the more unusual piece I’ve ever seen. It’s in an unknown pattern cut with extreme skill and precision on quite an elegant blank. No spot was spared from the skilled cutting on this piece.
Notched prism extends from the top of this face until the pinched middle where it meets some of the deepest stair cutting I’ve seen. Please study the photos to see how much of the blank is cut away in this portion – at least half! The notched cutting resumes for the lower portion of the vase where it frames richly cut hobstars. Even the base is finished in a 20-point hobstar. Lots of detail and care went into this vase.
This piece is in perfect condition and measures 11 5/8″ tall and 4 1/2″ wide. The blank is wonderfully clear save for one tiny rust colored stain in the base (literally smaller than a finger nail tip).
