Fabulous Gorham and Clear Tusk Trophy Ewer – SOLD
This gorgeous ewer features the most spectacular Gorham mounted lid. The exact piece is featured in the Gorham catalog printed by the ACGA. This was a presentation piece for the Indian Harbor Yacht Club Plant Race – Won by Oconee Jully 3, ’93 – as shown in the photos, this is engraved on the lid
The glass on this ewer is likely cut by J. Hoare. It features giant, swirling clear tusks divided by notching. The ultra-clear glass looks like icecles with this difficult to cut motif. These are motifs often employed by Hoare and Hoare often mounted to this type of Gorham lid on their premier pieces.
The ewer is 10 1/2″ tall, 5″ wide. It’s in perfect condition and a true rarity – this is what cut glass is all about!
