Extremely Well-done, Wide-mouthed Carafe SOLD
This highly detailed carafe is cut in an unknown design – one I’ve seen before on this bowl I’ve sold in the past. I’ve always assumed this design was cut by Pitkin & Brooks, Quakery City, or William C. Anderson/American Cut Glass.
Four large, diamond-shaped hobstars are surrounded by tiny bands of Russian cutting. This framework allows for a relief that is filled with parallel, notched cutting, more tiny Russian, and a deep hobstar. The base is covered with a 16 point hobstar and the neck has a strawberry-diamond band around it.
The carafe is in perfect condition and measures 8 1/2″ tall and 6″ wide and is quite heavy.
