Massive J. Hoare 14″ Hindoo Platter – SOLD
Large round trays like this one are hard enough to find, but when you add a pattern that displays this well on this form, well they’re downright scarce. The Hindoo pattern by J. Hoare shows so particularly well on this 14″ platter – it looks as if a star has burst over the entire tray.
A large 30-point hobstar covers the center of the plate. Extending from that hobstar are elongated scallop cutting. This scallop cutting is separated by notched prism and zipper cutting. The scallops run directly into the border of the tray which is made up of richly cut hobstars in diamond formation. Each on of these diamonds is tipped with tiny amounts of crosshatching. The quality and display of the tray are really something to behold.
The blank of the tray is exceptionally clear, heavy and thick. It measures just under 14″ and is in perfect condition. It’s getting harder to find these large, round platters especially one of this quality.
