Very Unusual Scalloped Tusks Bowl – ON HOLD
This bowl is cut in a high quality design I’ve never seen before. What’s particularly unusual is that the clear tusk looking areas are actually scalloped concavely on the exterior of the bowl The design bears a striking resemblance in setup to Libbey’s Circle and Arcs.
Four diamond shaped fields of hobnail converge in the center of this bowl. Pearched ove each one is a large hobstar, finished on its 3 remaining sides with crosshatching. Then the pattern is divided up by scalloped portions of clear glass in vesica formation. This motif frames the entire design. The edge has an unusual fan of strawberry-diamond cutting, which is often used on very high quality patterns.
The bowl is very heavy and thick and measures 9 1/2″ wide and 4″ tall. It has some tiny flecks in the design but is in nearly perfect condition.
