This relish is cut in Egginton’s highly desirable Calve (Triple Miter Trellis) Pattern. The pattern was named for famed opera singer Emma Calvé. The vase has the u-notches that Egginton, Hawkes and Sinclaire used as well.
The Calve pattern consists of tiny, detailed hobstars being intertwined with deep, triple-miter cutting. The relief creates large knobs that the hobstars remain perched on. It’s incredible to feel a piece like this in your hands – with all that glass cut away and the play in depth. It’s an exercise in wonderful engineering and cutting precision.
The blank on this piece is exceptionally clear, especially for something with such heavy cutting. It’s signed Egginton in the center and measures 7 7/8″ long and 4″ wide with a slight rolled in side.
