Huge Clark Desdemona Bowl – SOLD
This very large bowl is nearly a single piece eggnog bowl cut in Clark’s Desdemona pattern. It’s an old pattern and completely wood wheel polished.
This pattern is often confused with Hawkes’ Chrysanthemum, for obvious reasons. Converging at the center of the bowl are four large split vesicas containing crosshatching. Surrounding each of these vesicas are two larger bands of cane which meet at a flashed 8-point hobstar! Lying between each of these vesicas is a large, deep 24-point hobstar with a rayed center.
This enormous bowl is in perfect condition and measures 10 3/8″ wide and 4 1/2″ tall. The blank is ultra clear and the bowl resonates witha beautiful chime when tapped.
