This low bowl was cut by Pairpoint in their rare and collectible Catalpa design. This design is one of their most complex with what is likely the most cutting per square inch of any designs in their catalog. The silver is marked Birks.
The Catalpa design spurs from the senter point with a great bit of busy cutting. Small fanned fields, and crosshatched portions are divided into clear crosses taht continually run in all directions. What’s most unusual about these crosshatches is that they’re done with tiny, curved clear bands – most companys would have left everything a straight line – I imagine this work was painstakingly done at the cutter’s expense. The edge of the bowl is finished with deep hobstars and fans.
The bowl is in perfect condition and measures 9″ wide and 2 1/2″ and is in excellent condition. If one was interested, I have matching berry/serving dishes to this piece – shown in the last photo.
