Well Done William Anderson Ice Bucket Gemini Pattern – SOLD
This is a great ice bucket in the Gemini pattern – named by the Anderson Study Group and attributed to William C. Anderson and the American Cut Glass Co. What’s particularly nice about this piece is the uninterrupted continuation of the design into the handles.
Vesicas housing 2 flat hobstars and a combination of crosshatched fields are surrounded by precise nothced cutting. These vesicas are framed with feathering and frame a larger, deeper hobstar whose southern-most point attaches to another field of crosshatching. The vesicas all converge in the center of the bucket and run all the way up to the tip of the handle – which is particularly unusual and an extra touch of care.
This ice bucket is in perfect condition on an exceptional blank – it measures 6 1/2″ wide and 5 3/4″ tall.
