This two part centerpiece was cut by the skilled craftsman and Empire glass in their intricate Seneca design. The piece is unusual in that the top bowl is oblong in shape.
Seneca is an extremely complex design – featuring many intersecting miters framed clusters of a variety of motifs. The motif that seems to be most prevelent is hobnail cutting that we see interspersed throughout the bowl. It frames fields of hobstars that have clear-mitered fields at the very point of the formation. Crosshatching is also used throughout the pattern and the plug features a 12-point hobstar. The base of the centerpiece features a chaine of hobstars around the collar and the neck is fluted and notched. The base is scalloped and with a 20-point hobstar.
This piece is in perfect condition with no damage. The cutting is extremely vibrant and shiny and the blank exceptionally clear. It measures 12″ long, 8 1/2″ tall and 9″ wide.
