Unusual Cornucopia Variation Carafe SOLD
This is an extremely well done carafe in a variation of Bergen’s Cornucopia design. The base/center of the pattern along with the setup are exactly the same, but the motifs within the setup are different.
The “sheaths” of cornucopia are done exactly like Bergen did – with doubled up rays held together with bands of crosshatching. Where there would normally be a hobstar in Bergen’s rendition, there is a very unusual moon-like formation with a circle of crosshatching and a punty in the center. It’s stunning and provides a beautiful optical effect. The central bottom cutting features a swirl of doubled up ray (something I’ve only ever seen Bergen do on their older patterns) cutting, which is almost more beautiful displayed upside down! The neck is fluted and notched.
The carafe is in perfect condition and measures 8″ tall. This is surely an opportunity to get one of the rarest and most desirable patterns of the Brilliant Period for a major discount because of some slight modifications. A wonderful, high-quality piece to be sure
