Rarity – Libbey Florence Master Salt – SOLD
Many salts were imported during the Brilliant Period – often featuring generic cutting. This master salt was cut by Libbey in their early and beautiful Florence design.
Libbey took a lot of care on this small – it even features a split-point hobstar base. The Florence pattern consists of a 5-point formation with a fanned center. Each of these is topped with a fan that runs to large scallops around the rim. There is a framed, pointed field which makes a spike in teh rim of the piece. The base features a 12-point, split-point hobstar.
The piece is wood wheel polished and on a very clear blank. It’s in excellent condition except for a few small flakes in the fan cutting.
