Spectacular Libbey Neola Bowl – SOLD
The Neola pattern is easily Libbey’s most underrated pattern. Intense and thoughful cutting covers the entire surface of this bowl and it is a masterpiece. It is signed with the Libbey sabre.
The center of this bowl has an unusual 8-point star formation. Each of the points alternates with a clear button hobstar and a split fanned motif. The surrounds a richly cut hobstar. Four large wedding-cake hobstars are topped with a full burst of fan. A cross of feathering separates the large, wedding-cake hobstars. A smaller hobstar is perched between the feathered cross.
The blank of this bowl is wonderful and measures 8 1/4″ wide and 3 1/2″ tall. It’s in perfect condition with only a couple of fleabites. The cutting on the bowl highlights Libbey’s best and makes this bowl an extreme bargain in comparison of some more popular, but less well done patterns.
