It is highly unusual for a hobstar to exceed 32-points. 48-points is excessive, even. But this fishtail tray, features a remarkable, show-stopping 60-point hobstar. The amount of points at the edge of the hobstar is impressive, but please note all the tiny little points on the interior where the cutting becomes condensed. How they got that much definition without ruining the entire star baffles me.
The pattern of this piece wraps around the edge and features deep hobstars separated by two bands of notching. The hobstar has two triangular fields of crosshatching both above and below it. The ends of the piece have handles integrated in the cutting with oblong punties framed with fan cutting.
The blank and shape of the tray are extremely clear and radiant -note in the 3rd picture that the edge of the tray is ruffled. It’s no mystery that the central hobstar really steals the show on this piece – I have not seen any cut finer. But that hobstar, coupled with the unusual shape and design of this piece really makes the piece attractive and desirable. It measures 16 5/8″ long, 9 3/8″ wide, and 3″ high.
