Gigantic Museum-Quality Hawkes Marquise Tulip Punch Bowl – ON SOLD
This is an enormous punch bowl cut by Hawkes in their Marquise design. The exact piece is shown in the ACGA catalog reprint. Hawkes reserved this shape for very special pieces – the Hawkes Panel punch bowl and this punch bowl are the only I’ve ever seen it used with. It’s hard to fathom the size, but it towers over most large punch bowls and I find the form to be not only elegant but having a great presence among anything you put it around.
The Marquise design features a chain of hobstars in diamond fields. Draping down from the base of each diamond is notchingand in between each band of notching is deep flute cutting. The edges of the piece have large fans running up to the teeth. The base has an amazing, extremely thick collar with another chain of deep hobstars laid across it.
The punch bowl is in excellent condition with just a few tiny fleabites and measures 17.5″ tall and 15″ wide. It’s signed with the oversized Hawkes signature and on the clearest of blanks.
