HUGE HAWKES QUEENS TRUMPET VASE SOLD
This has always been one of the most popular items in Brilliant Cut Glass – the Queens Trumpet vase. This piece is signed with the Hawkes trefoil.
The Queens pattern is one of the most visually stunning patterns. A long chain of very richly cut hobstars extends down the length of the vase. Alternating with these are chains of St. Louis Diamond (honeycomb) cutting. This work gives an incredible optical effect and shows off the high clarity glass. This piece is even rarer than most because it lacks the typical lapidary knob seen on so many of these piece – rather it has a complete continuation of the pattern with smaller and smaller St. Louis Diamond.
This Queens vase is larger than most, at 16 1/2″ tall and 5 1/2″ wide. The blank is extremely heavy and of the highest Steuben quality. The vase is in perfect condition. There is a reason that Queens is so popular and this vase exemplifies the reason for its ever-lasting, strong demand. This piece is being offered at a bargain price considering that the rule of thumb has always been $100 per inch of the Queens pattern.
