Huge J. Hoare Carolyn Ice Cream Tray -SOLD
These large ice cream trays have always managed to retain their value no matter what changes the cut glass market goes through. They’re impressive in both size and execution and display exceptionally well. This one is cut in J. Hoare’s Carolyn pattern and is signed very faintly on the surface of the tray.
Cane provides the main framework for the pattern – housing hobstars topped with fields of fan cutting. Smaller hobstars connect the rest of the pattern together at the base of the cane. That major miter framework lays space for a vesica filled with a split of notched cutting. Handles are even cut into the ends of the tray to make this large piece easier to handle – it’s always impressive what they came up with during the heigh of America’s glass production.
The tray is in perfect condition and measures just under 18″ long, 10 1/2″ wide and 3″ tall. The blank is perfectly clear and flawless. Seldom do these large trays come up under the $1500 price point. This is offered at a bargain price and will continue to appreciate in value.
