Rare Libbey 1-1 Comet Pattern Bowl – SOLD
This is one of the most beautiful patterns Libbey ever made – Comet. It is officially known as Lenox, but more commonly referred to as Comet. The bowl is signed with the Libbey saber trademark.
A gorgeous richly cut, octagonal hobstar is featured in the center. Swirling around the center hobstar are two types of shooting stars. On features a tail made of two clear-button hobstar. The other type of tail is a flat hobstar with a feathered tail. The outer edge of the plate features a very unusual large, split-point hobstar with fans in between each point. What’s remarkable about this pattern is that the miter that frames the hobstar extends impeccably all the way to the outer edge of the tray (making up the furthest point of the deep hobstars). Absolutely amazing!
The bowl is on an wonderfully clear blank and in exceptionally good condition. It measures 8 1/4″ wide and 3 1/2″ tall.
