World Class Dorflinger Rich Cut Vase – SOLD
This is one of the premiere pieces Dorflinger ever produced. This vase is cut in their “Rich Cut” design and is stellar. It’s on a massive blank that measures over 8″ wide with exceptionally deep cutting! The entire piece is wood-wheel polished to silky perfection.
Dorflinger seems to have reserved this pattern solely for this shape vase. They thought very highly of it as they produced a few cut-to-clear vases (this same shape) with silver rims. There are four huge, three tiered hobstars cut around the perimeter of the vase. The depth to these stars is staggering! These hobstars are surrounded by notching and crosshatching. As you move up the vase there are four large eight point stars perched between the tops of the huge hobstars. Bands of notching continue up the vase and loop around large bands of cane. The rim is finished with high-reaching cane with great relief and valleys achieved with the teeth. The footed base features a 24-point clear button hobstar.
The vase is in perfect condition with only one minor fleabite in the cutting. It’s very thick and exceptionally clear. It measures just over 11 1/4″ tall and 8 1/4″ wide. These vases are rare and highly sought after – don’t miss out!
