Massive 10 Pound 8″ Roseglobe with Sunburst – SOLD
This piece is extremely impressive for not only the precise cutting, but also the extremely heavy double thick blank. This roseglobe weighs a whopping 9.5 pounds! Because of this, it doesn’t allow quite as much to pass through it but to hold such an imposing piece makes up for that.
The main motif of this pattern is a large sunburst with a clear puntie in the center. Through that central lens, you can see the entire pattern perfectly. A cross of five hobstars divides each sunburst and holds triangles of crosshatching along with a stylized fan formation. The pattern continues seemlessly across the base with more crosshatching, deeply cut cane and a large central hobstar.
The globe is in excellent condition with only a small flake to the base. Again, this is a double thick blank and measures 9.5 pounds. The globe measures 8″ wide and 6 3/4″ tall. Roseglobes this nice, large and heavy are seldom seen and the cutting on this piece is extremely well done.
