William C. Anderson Triumph Bread Tray SOLD
I love this design by American Cut Glass Company and think it adapts to this shape particularly well. This is one of the few designs patented by American Cut Glass and is unique in its setup – with all of the feathering motifs being on the interior of the pattern.
A four pointed formation fills the interior of the Triumph pattern. Two of the longer branches have a full hobstar and a smaller, clear-button hobstar. The smaller branches only have the clear button hobstar and they all surround a central 8-sided hobstar. Huge hobstars lie between each branch and are surrounded on both sides by crosshatching and pointed fields of cane. Finally two vesicas of crosshatching sit at the edge with fans spurting up between each one.
This is only the second piece in this pattern I’ve had the chance to offer and probably only the fourth piece in the pattern I’ve ever seen. It is a true rarity and shows the ingenuity of William C. Anderson’s design. The blank is phenomenally clear and brilliant, allowing the pattern to shine. It’s in almost perfect condition with barely a fleabite. It meausres
