This 7″ plate was cut in the rare Grecian design by TG Hawkes. 7″ plates are extremely popular and collectible, because they display the pattern perfectly without taking too much space.
The Grecian pattern displays wonderfully on this plate. A large 8-point hobstar formation fills the center of the bowl. Spurring from each of the points of that formation are 8 large clear-tusk vesicas. Supposedly this was one of, if not the most difficult motifs to cut as it has to be done by the naked eye, rather than tracing a line. These tusks extend all the way into the rim treatment to a nice, sharp point. The rest of the pattern is entirely Russian cutting and the contrast between the clear tusks and the brilliant cutting is particularly striking. Wood-wheel polish finishes out the plate for that perfect, radiant silkiness.
The plate is in perfect condition and measures 7″ wide and 1″ tall and is in perfect condition.
