Incredible Hawkes Russian and Pillar Pitcher – SOLD
This is great old glass! While there were many russian/swirl designs during the Brilliant Period, this may be the rarest one – Russian and Pillars by Hawkes which is shown in their patent designs. This piece was made early in the period and is gorgeously wood-wheel polished.
Bands of Russian wrap around the pitcher and are framed on either side by narrow, swirling tusks. Each of these pillars is divided by a band of tight notching. The design covers the entire pitcher and meets an unusual flat, notched rim. The base of the pitcher is covered with a rayed star and the handle is quintuple notched.
The pitcher is on a clear blank and in remarkably good condition with just a few tiny nicks in the cutting. It measures 11 3/4″ tall and 4″ wide.
Pattern: Russian & Pillar
