Elegant Sinclaire Cut and Engraved Water Set – SOLD
Offered is a lovely water set in a cut and engraved design by Sinclaire. All four tumblers are signed Sinclaire, but I cannot find one on the pitcher.
The blank of the pitcher was used exclusively by Hawkes and Sinclaire and reserved for some of their most popular designs. A chain of hobstars adorns the perimeter of the each piece seperated by deep miters. The rims appear to be engraved with sunflowers or daisies (I’m not an expert on flowers). The base of all piece have large scallops of glass cut vertically for a perfect contrast to the heavy cutting and engraving on the rest of the pieces. The handle of the pitcher is double notched and finished with a rayed star.
The set is in excellent condition but the tumblers do have some heavy interior scratching. The pitcher measures 6″ tall and 6″ wide while the tumblers are 4″ tall and 2 1/2″ wide. The set is is a tremendous value at this price and makes a wonderful example of cutting and engraving.
