Extremely Impressive Clark Angelus Bowl – SOLD
Lapidary knob/rose diamond patterns are some the most desirable in all of cut glass and this bowl is no exception. Cut in Clark’s Angleus pattern, this piece is a complete dazzler. The bowl is signed in the center with the Clark script logo.
The most distinct feature of the bowl is the large lapidary diamond form surrounded by a pinwheel. It not only shows of the clarity and quality of the glass, but the skill of the cutter. The rose diamond is quite deep as evidenced in the photos. The rose-diamond pinwheel is framed with a chain of hobstars that are linked with a panel of hobnail. Starting from the center of the bowl, there is a three pronged, linked-vesica cutting. The inner vesica features hobnail surrounded on either side with notching. The larger, outer vesica features two panels of cane which frame hobnail and are topped with crosshatching.
The bowl is in very good condition, but does have some small chips in the cutting – primarily the pinwheel miters. The blank is exception – better than some of the blanks I’ve seen on Clark’s other lapidary diamond patterns – Heroine, Orloff and Waldorf. This piece measures just over 9 1/4″ wide and 4″ tall.
