An unusual blank for Libbey, this signed ice cream tray is really impressive to behold. The unusual shape and manipulation of the Ellsmere design add to the appeal.
A flat hobstar is flanked on either side by two bands of triple-miter cane. This main portion of the pattern is encircled in what looks like partial circles-something I imagine wasn’t particularly easy to execute. Rising from this area is fine crosshatching met with deeply cut notched prism which creates the an extremely tasteful border. The center of the bowl has a complex 6-point hobstar formation.
The tray is in perfect condition and measures 12 1/2″ long and 7 1/2″ wide. It’s in perfect condition and on a perfectly clear blank.
