Stunning Detailed Cookie Jar – SOLD
This is one of the most well-done jars I’ve ever seen. The cutting is meticulous, and highly-detailed and covers the entire piece – even the lid is completely cut in pattern.
Triangular fields of cane mirror each other on either side of notching. In between each field of cane is a hobstar perched atop tight crosshatching. Under the notching is a super-tight field housing a hobstar and framed on 3 sides by crosshatching. The lid is completely cut in pattern – an amazing feat given how little real estate the cutter had to work with. The base features a split point, 26-point hobstar.
The jar is in perfect condition and measures 9″ tall. It’s on the best quality blank – a premier example from the Brilliant Period.
