Sought After Jewel by Aberdeen Sandwich Plate
This sandwich plate is cut in Jewel’s Aberdeen pattern – easily one of the most striking and popular designs of the Brilliant Period. It combines brilliant cutting with clear glass in a precisely distinguished manner. As most Aberdeen plates go, this has the traditional wafer base.
The center hobstar of this piece lies within the wafer/pedestal. Its points are finished with crosshatching. Following the interior circle is a layer of flute cutting. This meets notching and a band of clear-button hobstars. These hobstars are all separated with crosshatching. Another band of notching divides the final rim flute cutting. One of the most distinguished parts of this pattern is the fact that the flutes become the teeth – surely a cut glass engineering marvel of the time.
The plate is in excellent condition with no damage – just a few surface scratches. It measures an even 10″ wide. A bargain price on one of the most recognizable and desirable designs in cut glass.
