Gorgeous Thick Bowl with Feather and Russian Details – SOLD
This is a very well-cut bowl featuring a wide variety of motifs and depth of cutting. While the maker remains unknown, there are some similarities between the setup of this pattern and some William C. Anderson designs – namely Fan Border.
Seven deep hobstars cover the interior of this bowl while bands of can and crosshatching come off of them towards teh edge of the bowl. These bands frame deep, 5-sided hobstars and large panels of tiny, detailed Russian cutting. The edge features an unusual “feather” of notched, split vesicas and cane cutting interspersed with fan cutting.
The blank on this bowl is very thick and heavy while remaining perfectly clear. It measures 9 1/4″ wide and 3 1/2″ tall” tall
