GLASS CUTTER / PATTERN NAME: Both the glass cutter and pattern name are unknown to me. I checked out all of the Tiger Lily and Lily patterns and couldn't find a positive match. This bowl definitely has the look and quality of American Brilliant Period cut and engraved glass made sometime in the early 1900's.

BLACK LIGHT TEST RESULTS: Confirms American Brilliant Period (approximately 1876-1916)

MEASUREMENTS: 9" in diameter, 4" high, and 5/8" thick.

WEIGHT / RING: It weighs 5 pounds and has a nice ring when tapped.

BLANK / GLASS CLARITY: This is an extra thick 10-sided blank that reminds me of a fabulous Steuben cut glass bowl that I sold last year. I'm unsure how this blank was created, but there are no ripples on the interior to indicate it is a figured blank. The glass is bright and clear.

CUTTING DETAILS: The eye-catching hobstar is cut very deep into the bottom. If you look at pictures of Tiger Lilies, the flowers on this bowl are definitely a match. The engraving includes two flowers pointing upward, one flower pointing down, and an unopened bud. The engraving is not the deep intaglio type, but it is carved slightly into the glass. It has some fine detail work to make it more lifelike that includes the veins on the leaves and tiny spots on the flower petals.

POLISHING QUALITY: The finish on the hobstar looks and feels very crisp. The majority of the floral engraving is purposely unpolished, but there appears to be a few areas that are lightly polished to give it some highlights.

CONDITION REPORT (ALWAYS VERY PICKY): The teeth are in great shape and I had to look super closely to find two pencil point sized nicks on them. The side pattern area looks very good with just a couple of tiny pencil point or less sized nicks on the outer edges. The bottom has a few more of these tiny nicks and some typical wear scratches on the high spots. The interior has numerous fine scratches that are mostly on the bottom portion. These are only noticeable if you look closely for them at just the right angle in bright light.

FINAL COMMENTS: A bowl like this is surely hard to find and it could easily be considered rare. It combines beautiful high quality engraving with a flashy hobstar bottom. The engraving could easily be compared to some of the best work done by Tuthill, Hawkes, Sinclaire, and Libbey. The new owner should be very happy to own this outstanding bowl.

offerDING FORMAT: There is with a $9 starting price. This is my favorite way to sell even high-priced items. I will never under any conditions end my sales early to sell to an anxious buyer requesting a buy it now.

SHIPPING & INSURANCE: A flat rate for shipping with insurance included by USPS Parcel Select (formerly called Parcel Post) to anywhere in the U.S.A. will be $12. This method may take longer, but should save money for both of us. I don't ship my cut glass outside of the U.S.A. Please don't ask me to make an exception just for you. I will gladly combine multiple purchases at a reduced rate based on the buyer's location.

I am a member of the American Cut Glass Association. I subscribe to the ACGA Code of Ethics. I regularly buy quality cut glass and I hope to have plenty more to offer in my future items. I'm very much into cut glass, but I'm not your typical cut glass collector and dealer. I prefer to enjoy this glass for short periods of time and everything that I buy will eventually be sold. Because of this strategy I'm able to sell even the most desirable and rare pieces that I can find and not keep them for myself. Many serious cut glass collectors have benefited because of this and I also hope to keep the casual or beginner buyers happy with some desirable cut glass also. Please check out my other current listings and bookmark my site or add me to your favorite sellers.

RETURN POLICY: Please offer with confidence, your satisfaction is always guaranteed. I offer a 14-day return privilege. If you are unsatisfied or if you feel the item was misrepresented, it may be returned provided the item is in original condition. If the return is the result of an error on my part, I will refund the shipping & insurance costs also. For questions please use the "Ask seller a question" link in the sale or you can phone me at 412-486-9727 during reasonable Eastern Standard Time hours.

Payment

SALES TAX: Pennsylvania residents without a valid resale tax number are asked to please add 7% sales tax (6% PA. & 1% for Allegheny County) to your final purchase price when checking out. There will be no exceptions to this tax if you live in Pennsylvania and do not supply a valid resale number.


I accept the following forms of payment:
  • PayPal




Shipping & Handling

I will try my best to send out items within 24 hours of receiving payment. If this is not possible I will inform the buyer of the intended shipping date. Shipping including insurance is given as a flat rate to anywhere in the U.S.A. Depending on the buyers location and size of the box, I will use at my discretion either USPS Priority Mail or USPS Parcel Post. If by some chance my flat rate amount is larger than the actual cost, I will refund the difference. I do not charge for packing materials & handling. I pack all items very carefully to ensure a safe arrival.
