Unusual Elmira No. 17 Carafe – SOLD
This carafe is cut in Emira’s impressive No. 17 pattern. This blank is quite unusual with its neck bulge and tapered sides and I’ve only ever seen it featured in a Bergen catalog.
The No. 17 pattern features loops of crosshatching tied together with square portion of fan. The looping ribbons of crosshatching frame both cane cutting and large hobstars. The lower portion of the carafe has unusual parallel line cutting while the neck features swril cutting along with step and crosshatching – really a touch of extra quality.
The blank of the carafe is heavy and clear and the piece is in perfect condition – with only one minor fleabite in the cutting. This large carafe measures 8 3/4″ high and 6″ diameter.
