These are some of the best stems from the Brilliant Period. While I’ve seen them a few times, the maker remains unknown. They are shown in only retail catalogs, like Marshall Fields, so we still don’t know who cut them – but these are some of the finest examples of the era.
A large deep hobstar sits above a curved band of cane along the bowl of the stem. It is framed on the upper portion with notched cutting which leads into a vesica of two flat hobstars with crosshatched dividers. The stem includes a fluted lower portion and lapidary knob framing a large, hollow teardrop. The base of these goblets are incredible – with a 6-sided hobstar formation with caned-points and fine crosshatching cut all the way up to the scalloped edge. The base alone is indicative of the quality of this set.
The goblets are in perfect condition and measure 6 1/2″ tall and 3 1/4″ wide. I have 12 and they are priced at $375 each.
