Incredible Tuthill Swirling Comet Bowl-SOLD
This fabulous, helmet-shaped bowl was cut by Tuthill during the height of the brilliant period. It is signed twice (once off center, lightly and once in the center) with the Tuthill trademark.
The bowl features Tuthill’s silvery finish and tight crosshatching. Swirls of deep cut hobstars separated by triangular fields of crosshatching are separated by deep miters which run out toward the rim of the bowl at a large point in the scalloped rim. The swirls converge in the center at a kite-shaped field of split crosshatching.
The bowl is on an excellent blank and in great condition – it has one tiny, hard to find flake at the rim, but is otherwise perfect. It measures 9″ wide and 4 1/4″ tall.
