This large bowl has an impressive amount of detail and cutting. It features several motifs from Libbey’s Grand Prize pattern, but I cannot be certain it was made by Libbey.
I don’t even know where to begin in describing this design. It is essentially a cross of deeply cut hobstars with expanding vesicas in between each spoke of the cross. The first ring of the vesica features a hobstar in a diamond shape field topped with hobnail. Somehow, the cutter placed very fine crosshatching in four adjacent vesicas. The rest of the bowl is wrapped in deeply cut cane. On top of the spokes of the central cross is additional hobnail and a large hobstar.
This bowl is oversized, measuring in at. It’s extremely heavy and clear.
