Brilliant Hawkes Kensington Plate SOLD
The Kensington pattern is one of Hawkes’ most intense and skillfully cut patterns. Not even the tiniest of details was spared. This tray is signed directly in the center with the Hawkes trefoil logo.
The center of the Kensington pattern is essentially made up of a large 8-pointed star formation. The center of this formation features a large hobstar and the points of the formation feature two tiny hobstars separated by a triple miter motif. The smaller of the two hobstars is perfectly executed and smaller than a fingernail. Falling in between the points of the 8-pointed star are undulating motifs of tiny hobstars and kohinoor fields. The exterior portion of the pattern features eight large deeply cut hobstars.
The tray is on a thick, clear blank and measures 10″ wide and 1 1/2″ tall. It’s in perfect condition.
