Spectacular Hawkes Old Imperial Bowl- SOLD
This bowl, cut in Hawkes’ old Imperial pattern, is second to none. The pattern is deeply cut, with protrusions in the pattern at any angle on the bowl. It’s wood wheel polished and stylistically sound.
Triple miter channels weave throughout the bowl, providing a framework for the rest of the design. These create some crosshatched panels that rise off the bowl. Deep hobstar sit within the triple miter frame along with clear-button hobstars.
This is an underrated, amazing pattern. The blank is perfectly clear and vibrant and measures 7″ wide and 3″ tall. The bowl stands to be a tremendous value as a low bowl in this pattern just sold for $1500 at Woody Auction.
