Optical Sinclaire Brussels Plate – SOLD
This is a gorgeous plate in the Sinclaire’s Brussels pattern. The Brussels design is nearly identical to Hawkes’ Kings pattern. It is signed in the center with the Sinclaire trademark.
One of the most stunning portions of this pattern are the large, clear punties that wrap around the bowl. They provide wonderful optics when looking at the entire bowl – like a lens. The border of the bowl is also unusual – it is cut like Hawkes’ panel with large scallops and then a u-notch between each one. This rim frames richly cut, diamond shaped hobstars. The punties are divided with a notch and a downward fan. Then there is another additional row of clear-button hobstars and another row of punties. The center of the plate has a 14- point hobstar.
The plate is in perfect condition and measure 10″ wide. The blank is ultra-clear which shows off all the clear areas in the pattern.
