Incredible Egginton Cascading Tusk Bowl SOLD
The masters at Egginton cut several variations of this cascading tusk design. You can see another here, with variation only in the cascading portions and vesicas. I’ve seen some of these signed, this example is not.
My eyes are immediately drawn to the cascading tusks that run down the side of the bowl. Tusks were one of the most difficult and unusual cuttings of the period. This bowl uses these tusks so effectively – like a frozen waterfall – it’s particularly stunning. Large vesicas of crosshatching border each “waterfall.” Two graduating, richly cut hobstars come up from the center of the bowl which is also finished with a six sided hobstar.
The quality of this bowl is top-notch and it’s in excellent condition. It measures 9″ wide and 4″ tall.
