This is one of the most impressive vases I’ve had the opportunity to offer. It has so much presence – because of size and sparkle. It’s cut in Libbey’s seldom-seen Prism design and is signed with the Libbey Saber on the faceted knob. This blank is shown in Sultana in the old Libbey catalog (photo attached) – I’ve never seen another, intact version.
From the base of the vase , there is notching leading to fine crosshatching. This crosshatching leads to two layers of clear button cane which leads to more notched prism and crosshatching. The pattern repeats itself again twoards the rim. The neck is fluted and notched and leads to a large, over-sized lapidary knob and a petticoat, paperweighted base with a 24-point hobstar.
The shape and sized of the vase is remarkable – it measures 15 1/4″ tall and 5 1/4″ wide. The vase is hefty and seems even larger than 5 1/4″ wide – especially at the middle bout.
