Gorgeous J. Hoare Tokio Footed Roseglobe Vase ON HOLD
This is a great shape cut by J. Hoare in their Tokio pattern. This blank can be seen in the Hoare catalog reprint, cut in Croesus – I’ve never seen it cut by another company.
A chain of diamond shaped fields exented around the perimeter of this vase. Each diamond is filed with 8-point stars, crosshatching, and fans. All of the diamonds are divided by fans. The neck is fluted and notched – which leads to a repeating portion of the pattern at the rim. The base is finished in an old Hoare style hobstar with 24-points.
The vase measures 8 3/4″ tall and 4 1/2″ wide. It’s very heavy and in great condition.
