Ohio Cut Glass Company Palm Shell – SOLD
This shell shaped piece, cut in Ohio’s Palm design, has always remained one of the most whimsical pieces from the period. It’s probably Ohio Cut Glass’s most memorable pattern.
The handle of the piece features a large, 24-point hobstar with a deep circular miter framing out. Shooting outward from that star are chains of hobstars – the first one being flat, white the following two are deep. These chains are seperated with crosshatching and divided by two parallel lines of notching. The last row of notching contains three bands.
The shell is in perfect condition and on an excellent blank, measuring 6 1/4″ wide and 1 3/4″ tall. This is an excellent cabinet and conversation piece that will light up most collections.
