Hunt’s Royal Heart Shaped Nappy – SOLD
This heart-shaped nappy was cut in Hunt’s Royal pattern – one of the most collectible and identifiable designs from the period.
An Arcadia styled design runs around the edge of this piece – comprised of crossed bars of crosshatching intersecting and a clear-button hobstar separating larger, deeper hobstars. That border frames the interior of deep, Persian cutting. The relief of this cutting leaves knobs where each hobstar is cut. The “handle of the nappy” features parallel, notched miters for grip.
The nappy is in great condition and features one area of light roughness at the handle. It measures 7” wide and 1” tall.
