Cute Hawkes Tapered Vase – SOLD
I have never seen the pattern of this vase, but it is signed Hawkes on the base. It’s also an unusual shape and very bottom heavy.
The pattern of the vase is made up of primarily a rayed fan cutting. This motif is stacked on top of each other and framed in squares. The glass that sits highest in this type of cutting is actually scalloped in a concave manner which is particularly unusual. Each section of the rayed fan cutting is separated by notching which is topped by an eight-point star with a clear center. The base is finsihed with a rayed star and the neck and rim are fluted and notched.
The vase is in good condition, but does have a few tiny flakes around the rim and the tiniest of stains to the base of the interior. It measures 9 1/4″ tall and 3 1/2″ wide. I have not seen this blank or pattern before, which makes this quite the unusual piece.
