Gorgeous Bowl Attribute to Monroe SOLD
This is an extremely high quality bowl cut in a variety of motifs which leads me to believe it was cut by CF Monroe.
The center hobstar of this piece has cutting between each of the points – something only seen on top-quality pieces. Some of the points are wrapped in tight crosshatching while others have complex, hexad cutting. These large fields of hexad are surrounded by notching and come to a point, leading to a border with cane – which runs right up to the edge in a thumb shaped field – something I see mainly on Monroe pieces (hexad is another motif of theirs). Sitting between each field of hexad is a large, 24-point hobstar.
The blank of the bowl is crystal-clear and measures 9 1/4″ wide and 4″ tall. It’s in stunning, perfect condition.
