Deep Square Fold-over Bowl – Likely Meriden – SOLD
This is a beautifully, well-done bowl. I think it was likely cut by Meriden due to the variety of motifs – particularly flat hexad and clear-button hobstars. The bowl is an unusual shape with fold-over, deep sides.
All five hobstars are cut with clear-button centers. Extremely fine crosshatched bands frame the rest of the pattern. Intersecting miters divide up the bands along with several fields of hexad cutting. I particularly like the use of very busy cutting like this, interspersed with the clear glass and hobstars.
The bowl measures 9″ wide and a deep 4″ tall. It’s in perfect condition and on an exceptional blank. It is difficult to find something in this price range with this much quality and uniqueness.
