Exceptional, Museum-Quality Clark Angelus Punch Bowl SOLD
This special piece was cut by Clark Cut Glass at the heigh of the Brilliant Period. It’s one of the highest quality and most massive punch bowls I’ve seen. It is signed on the top with the Clark script signature.
The Angelus design is one of Clark’s most brilliant featuring one of their most desirable motifs – rose diamonds. These huge jewels cut in the glass are surrounded by spinning pinwheel cutting. A chain of hobstars, separated with hobnail fields wraps around each of these. Three spurring vesicas of cane, crosshatching and hobnail divide the rest of the design.
The blank of this piece is simply outstanding – as it needs to be to show off those big lapidary knobs. It’s massive, weighing 30 pounds total and measuring 16″ tall and 14″ wide. It’s in excellent condition and I only find one tiny, little nip to the inside of the rim.
