This seldom seen form, cut signed by Hawkes, is one of the rarer items of the Brilliant Period. Only a handful exist, and I’ve never seen one cut in this design. This exact piece is shown in a 1908 ad from good Housekeeping and is titled, “8-inch covered preserve dish.”
The pattern consists of large hobstars surrounde don either side with a clear, cross cut. Tiny fans surround each of those crosses. The cut in pattern lid mimics the design and features a cut finial while the base houses a rayed star.
This rare piece measures 8″ wide and 6″ tall and is in perfect condition on a clear blank.
