Incredible Sinclaire Snowflake and Holly Tray – SOLD
This ice cream tray is in Sinclaire’s extremely rare and highly sought after Snowflake and Holly pattern. It is signed Sinclaire in the center. This is actually the second of these that I’ve had the chance to offer and this one is ever so slightly larger than the last.
The Snowflake and Holly pattern is one of the best examples during the Brilliant Period of combining realistic engraving with brilliant cutting. A border of holly follows the edge of the piece. The central portion of this tray, which almost dips inward from the edge, is covered in “snowflake” cutting – tiny, rich hobstars with clear panels floating in between them with a little unpolished, rayed star in the center. The overall effect is nothing short of stunning!
The blank on this piece is outrageously clear and slightly thicker than most other pieces of Snowflake and Holly I’ve seen. It’s in perfect condition and measures 14″ by 10″.
