Abp American Brilliant Period Cut Glass Chalice Vase Crystal Detailed:
This is an incredible chalice vase in an unknown pattern. The pattern is shown in Pearson’s Encyclopedia, Volume 1 but is unidentified. It was clearly designed by a master.
The main motif of this vase features a deep circular miter surrounding an unusual formation. The formation is made up of eight clear button hobstars surrounding a punty embedded in crosshatching. The crosshatching is unique in that it is not polished fully (like some of the earlier Hawkes and Libbey patterns). Dividing each ofthecircles is split feathered type of cutting topped with three leaves. Underneath the upper portion of the vase is a chain of cane connected by additional clear button hobstars. The neck of the vase is finished with a compressed hollow diamond cutting in addition to the lower portion being fluted and notched. There is also a highly desirable lapidary knob. The base is serrated and covered with a 24-point hobstar.
This vase is in excellent condition with only a few small flakes to the cutting. It measures 11 1/2″ tall and 5 1/2″ wide. It’s my opinion that this magnificent vase was likely cut by Clark. It's visually stunning and an immense collection and application of a variety of motifs.Trulybetter than most chalice vases.
