Gorgeous Libbey Corona Two Part Salad Set SOLD
Nice salad sets are hard to come by, but this one by Libbey in their Corona pattern is really a stunner. Libbey made one of the most unique, singular shapes for salad sets, with a bowl that shoots almost straight upward with a nice flair and lapidary ring base. Both the bowl and under plate are signed with the Libbey trademark.
The salad bowl features a deep hobstar base. Coming up from that is a vesica of stacked hobstars divided with crosshatching and topped with checking. The rest of the design features the most identifiable portion of the pattern – 4 bars of notching are crossed with deep miters. The crosses form the border to two flat hobstar with adjacent checking. This motif is framed by curved bands of notching. The matching under plate features a compressed version of the pattern so to provide space for the bowl to sit.
The set is in perfect condition and measures 11 1/4″ wide and 7″ tall. The blank, like most pieces of corona is wonderfully clear.
