Excellent Large Libbey Corona Compote or Cake Plate
This blank is pictured in some Libbey Advertisements and is cut in Libbey’s Corona (aka Spillane) design. It is signed by Libbey with their sabre-trademark.
The compote has 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 elegant stem of this piece has a large clear bubble with flutes and notches leading to a lapidary band. The base is finished with a rayed star.
This large piece measures 10″ tall and 10″ wide and is in perfect condition – it is particularly unusual to find a compote of this size and I rarely see this blank shape.
