Most Elegant and Extremely Tall Slender Vase – SOLD
What a wonderful shape this vase is. Most large vases are hulking but this piece displays beautifully in the most graceful and shapley of ways. Hoare seemed to cut many vases in this size and that would be my guess as to who made this wonderful piece.
The pattern of this vase is quite complex. One portion of the vase features punties stacked in between two bars of crossing cane bound by a fanned square. The portion of the pattern is divided from the second by notched prism. The second portion of the vase features a motif I’ve never seen before. It appears as though bands of crosshatching are sprouting from the vase and the hobstar almost makes a flower like portion perched on top of the crosshatching. Both of these portion of the pattern lead up to a rim which is made of smaller hobstars, fans, crosshatching and hobnail. Fans finish out the vase. The base of the vase features an incredible 12-point hobstar formation with crosshatched points.
The size of this vase is quite large and it is very heavy. It measures 17 5/8″ tall and 5 1/8″ across the base. This vase will surely impress anybody – the quality is top notch and the shape and size are second to none.
