Extremely Rare Quaker City Rustic Bowl – SOLD
This bowl is unbelievably unusual – cut in Quaker City’s Rustic design, the use of giant tusks is staggering! Cut all over and singular in every way – I have only ever seen this design one other time.
Four large, deep circles house a flat hobstar cutting which is surrounded by tight crosshatching. Each of these circles is embedded in hobnail cutting that picnhes together at parallel notching. In between each of these circles is a giant, wide tusk (maybe the widest I’ve seen). The center of the bowl features four deep hobstars and crosshatching divided by a cross of more tusk cutting. It’s stunning in every way.
The bowl is in excellent condition on the finest of blanks. It measures 8″ wide and tall. When Quaker City wanted to, they could produce some of the highest quality cut glass out of any of the firms – this is a prime example of just that.
