This is a great shape cut by J. Hoare in their collectable Marquise design. The exact piece is shown on page 130 of the Black Hoare catalog reprint by the ACGA.
A chain of hobstars runs around the exterior rim of this piece. Under these hobstars is a band of cane cutting which separates the chain from the rest of the pattern. The lower portion of the pattern features portions of hobnail and flat hobstars with an overlaid crosscut band framing feathering cutting in 4 leaves. The entire flared neck is step-cut and the base is covered with a 24-point hobstar.
The tazza is in good condition but has a few tiny nips to the interior rim. It measures 9 3/4″ wide and 7 3/4″ tall.
