Fantastic, Oversized-footed Vase – SOLD
This elegant vase is cut in both a design and blank I’ve never seen. I’d bet good money that it’s a piece by J. Hoare but it is unsigned.
The hourglas top portion of this piece features a very large, deep hobstar on the lower portion and then fine parallel notching surrounding a vesica of hobnail on the upper bout. The rest of the pattern features an unusual Hoare-style cross cutting surrounded by the same parallel lines leeding to a flat hobstar. The base on this piece is oversized both in width and thickness and features a very unusual 6-point hobstar formation.
The vase is in perfect condition and measures 12″ tall and 6″ wide.
