Rare Hawkes Grecian Pattern Cut Glass Cordial:
This rare American Brilliant cut glass cordial was made by the T.G. Hawkes Co. of Corning, New York. It stands 4-1/8 inches tall and has a diameter of 2-1/8 inches at its rim. Its foot is 2 inches in diameter. It is cut in Hawkes rare and very desirable Grecian pattern. The Grecian pattern, designed by Thomas G. Hawkes, was patented October 25, 1887. Pearson, in “Encyclopedia of American Cut and Engraved Glass, Volume 1,” states on page 122 that the Grecian pattern is “One of the most beautiful of the Brilliant Period patterns.” He gives the pattern his highest relative value rating of 1-1 for rarity and quality/price range. This beautiful cordial has a notched panel cut stem and a hobstar cut foot. It is cut on a sparkling clear blank and fluoresces properly under a black light. It is in excellent condition. As in most cases with this early pattern, it is not signed. Hawkes Grecian pattern cut glass is rare and stemware in this pattern is seldom seen. This will be a great addition to any cut glass collection. Satisfaction guaranteed. Shipping insurance is included in the handling cost.
