Hawkes Russian Whiskey Jug with Pattern Cut Stopper SOLD
This whiskey jug was cut by Hawkes in their early Russian design. I have never seen another Russian whiskey jug and this would be considered a rare example.
This early design features countless crosscuts which lead to a relief – the higher portions, with more glass remaining features fanned buttons while the lower portions provide space between the buttons. The handle is fluted and notched while the spout is lapidary cut. The stopper is fully cut in pattern which makes this example a find!
The jug is in perfect condition with just a few tiny nips in the cutting. It measures 8 3/4″ tall and 5″ wide. and is on a perfectly clear blank with wood-wheel polish.
