True Rarity – Libbey/Anderson Rhomb Carafe – SOLD
This carafe is cut in Libbey’s extraordinarily rare Rhomb design. This is very likely Libbey’s rarest pattern – with only a handful of examples known. It was created by the premier designer of the Brilliant Period – William C. Anderson.
Coming up from the base of the carafe is a large hobstar formation which leads into 5-pointed stars with flashed centers – an often-scene Anderson motif. These 5-pointed stars make up a framework for the rest of the design – housing a pair of clear-button hobstars which hold the upper-portion of the design which includes tusks, crosshatching and cane cutting. The neck of the carafe is fluted and notched.
The carafe is in excellent condition and measures 7 1/2” tall and 7” wide.
