Shapely, Tall Cut & Engraved J. Hoare Vase
This vase is cut by J. Hoare. The exact piece is shown in the back of the black catalog reprint. While it’s called “Regular,” I believe this is a title Hoare used for one off designs, like the one on this vase.
The rim of the vase features a combination of deep hobstars, flat hobstars and crosshatched, triangular fields. Draping down most of the vase is a vine of primrose. In between each panel of the engraving are large parallel line herringbone cutting. The lower bout of the vase looks to be cut in Hoare’s Champion pattern. The base is finished with an unusual hobstar formation
The vase is in good condition – the bottom has one small chip on the edge and some surface scratching. It’s 17 1/2″ tall and 5 1/4″ across the base. The combination of cutting, engraving and size make this vase a highly desirable specimen. Large vases like this are becoming harder to find.
