Incredible William C. Anderson Universe Platter – SOLD
This huge platter was cut by American Cut Glass Company and designed by William C. Anderson. It is done in their Universe design and can be seen prominently in ‘The Chain of Evidence’ published by the Anderson Study Group.
Clusters of clear-button hobstars adorn the tray, each topped with a flat Christmas style star. Larger, clear-button, wedding-cake hobstars are sitting between the clusters at the edge. I have only ever seen this type of hobstar cut on Libbey’s very rare Windsor pattern. The center tray is finished with a 5-pointed star made up of points of cane. Between the points, there is a feathering motif.
The tray is in perfect condition and measures 13 3/4″ wide and 1 3/4″ tall. The quality of glass and cutting is unparalleled – it’s one of the best larger trays and can stand up against trays twice as expensive.
