Meticulous Pairpoint Triple Octagon with Engraved Pond Lily – SOLD
This fabulous pitcher was made by Pairpoint – it is shown exactly in the ACGA catalog reprint.
The body of the pitcher is cut in triple miter trellis with crosshatched-knobs. A large vesica of notching frames polished pond lily intaglio. Polished intaglio is rarer than unpolished, and I believe it lends a unique look to the engraved work-leaving it shimmering and silvery. The handle is triple-nothced and the base is finished with a rayed star.
The pitcher is in perfect condition and measures 9 1/2″ tall and 4 3/4″ wide. The blank is spectacular and combination of cutting and engraving second to very few pieces.
Pattern: Triple Octagon/Pond Lily
