Present your best items with Auctiva's FREE Scrolling Gallery. Gorgeous Antique ABP American Brilliant Period Deep Cut Glass Punch Bowl with Its Original Matching Pedestal Stand.
Unmarked, but Obviously made by One of the Finer Glassmakers given the High Quality of the Cutwork. This two-piece Punch Bowls primary Pattern is a large band of Hobstars with smaller Hobstars cut in the center. Surrounding the Hobstars are smaller areas of Cane and Cross-hatching.
The Rim Borders are covered with large areas of Cane ending with a Scalloped Saw Tooth edging. The Neck area has a rounded band of glass decorated with Diamond shapes filled with Cross-hatching like that found around the Hobstars.This is just above a series of Step or Horizontal Prism cutting in the neck. The Glass shines brilliantly and gives off a wonderful ring when tapped. This is truly a fine example of ABP Glass. Both the Bowl and Stand are in very good condition with no cracks or major chips just some small flakes and shallow chips commiserate with age. Bowl: scattering of commonly-found tiny nibbles and very shallow, small flake chips to the Saw Teeth on the Rim and. Some very minor rubbing or very light bruising to some of the surface cuts. There is some shallow chipping to the edging of the extended Glass Plug on the bottom of the Bowl where the two pieces rest against each other. Stand: Given that the base of the Stand is made up of Saw Teeth edging, there is amazingly little damage - about a half a dozen of the small Teeth chipped off and one surface chip resulting in a ¼ patch of missing cross-hatching (see 2 photos of Base edging). Very minor rubbing or very light bruising to some of the surface cuts. None of its issues are.
Significant or noticeable unless looking closely - particularly given the brilliance of the Glass and the massive amount of undamaged hand-cutting which surrounds any of it. The chipping on the smooth surface of the plug on the bottom of the Bowl which lies between the two pieces and, obviously, is not visible when the Bowl and Stand are together. The Bowl is 10 in diameter. The Punch Bowl itself weighs 11 lbs without any packaging.
