Huge Hawkes Brazilian Cheese Dome and Underplate – SOLD
This beauty is cut in Hawkes Brazilian – it’s on a stunning clear blank and wood-wheel polished for that silky, accurate feel Hawkes achieved in the early portion of the Brilliant Period.
The dome of the set features deeply cut 8-point clear-button hobstars. Crosshatching falls between all of the points. Fans sprout forth from in between each star and reach a diamond of mixed cutting – triangular clear triangles, diamond shaped fans and crosshatching. Fans finish out the upper portion of the pattern. The plate expludes the 8 pointed star but has a large central hobstar instead.
This is easily one of the nicest covered pieces I’ve seen – and largest, measuring 9″ wide and 6 1/2″ tall. It’s in perfect condtioin and on a gorgeous blank.
