Awesome Hawkes Kensington Cologne – SOLD
This cologne, which I’m offering from my personal collection, is one of my all-time favorite colognes. It is shaped like an ovoid barrell. The silver stopper is marked Shrever & Co and is decorated beautifully.
The Kensington pattern is easily one of Hawkes’ best designs. Large, diamond-shaped hobstars surround the perimeter of the piece. Below each are panels of kohinoor cutting. These panels meet a small, meticulously cut hobstars. Rising up between each of the kohinoor panels is a chain of tapering hobstars divided by triple miter cutting. The base of the piece is finished in a rayed star.
The cologne is in perfect condition and measures 6 1/2″ tall and 4″ wide. The blank is exceptional and the cutting is unmatched in quality.
