Amazing Hawkes Blowout Cookie/Ginger Jar – SOLD
This is a fantastic piece of Hawkes at the height of their success. Well known for blowout bowls, Hawkes created this jar and signed it around the rim – you can see the signatures in some of the photos.
This design was called Victoria, but that could be a name assigned by an author, as opposed to Hawkes. The jar features 4 large blown out panels which house 2 deeply cut hobstars separated by fans. Deep, clear miters frame each blown out section. The lid is covered with a 22-point hobstar with fans between the points. The base of the jar brings the four blown out sections together with outward-pointing fans.
The jar is in excellent condition with only a few teeny-tiny flecks around the rim. It’s on a crystal clear blank and measures 5 3/4″ tall and 5″ wide.
