Fabulous Old Russian Blowout Bowl – SOLD
This 8-lobed blowout bowl was likely cut by Hawkes. It is an early piece with wood wheel polishing and supremely accurate cutting and execution.
Complicated Russian cutting drapes down each lobe with clear, deep panels separating each one. The russian all converges into the center at a huge 26, split-point hobstar. I have never seen this, but there is fan cutting between each point of the hobstar.
The bowl is huge and heavy and on a perfectly clear blank. It measures 10 3/4″ wide and 3 1/2″ tall.
