Elegant Pairpoint Meteor Tall Compote
This is a beautiful compote cut by Pairpoint in their meteor pattern. The Meteor pattern really lets the glass “breathe” in that the pattern compliments the and exhibits the glass quality quite well.
Diamonds of notched prism adorn the perimeter of the bowl on this compote. They are separated by fan cutting and additional notched prism. Beneath the larger diamonds are fields of hobnail which frame the stem of the compote. The stem of the compote is made from a completely solid piece of glass (adding heft to the compote) and it is adorned with additional notched prism towards the top and is fluted and notched the rest of the way. The base is scalloped and contains a 24-point hobstar.
The compote is in excellent condition with the exception of one tiny clambshell chip on the base (visible in the photo). It measures 11 1/2″ tall and 7″ wide and is on a beautiful blank.
