Unusual Libbey Imperial Square Fold-over Bowl
This is a beautiful piece of glass cut by Libbey in their Imperial design. It is signed with the Libbey sabre trademark.
I believe this blank to be solely used by Libbey/Anderson – it’s unusual in that while it folds over on all sides, it does so at a slight angle so it’s not symmetrical. The Imperial pattern adapts perfectly to the form. Two large fields make up most of the pattern – one involves a very complicated hexad cutting with mitered buttons while the other is more of a triple miter framed hobstar. These are bordered by undulating bands of cane which converge at fanned diamonds. The center of the bowl is finished with an eight-pointed hobstar formation with crosshatched points.
The bowl is in perfect condition and measures 8″ wide and 2 3/4″ tall.
