By Empire Cut Glass Company, under the supervision of Henry Clay Fry. This Punch Bowl can be the central piece in any good collection. Once seen, it becomes a must.
Empire was primarily a cutting house only, using almost exclusively Fry's high quality blanks. And so patterns such as "Princeton" "Argo" and "Atlantic" are always sought by collectors, world over.
Of course, quality is automatically considered to be excellent on the basis of the maker whose reputation is among the finest of the Period. Empire Cut Glass, William Iorio. When a beautiful pattern is crafted on a very fine blank, such as in this case, the result is extra brilliance and a totally magnificent item. The bowl features a fancy scalloped rim design, difficult to execute and adds a pretty touch to the this lovely large punch bowl. As shown in the photos you can see the depth of these mitre cuts, they are rather deeply cut which.
This pattern was thought to have been the Argo pattern, and it may be, however after much research. I have discovered this may possibly be the Princeton Pattern, also cut by Empire, they are very similar patterns. Literature;'Rich Cut Glass', Trade Catalog F. Tinker (Firm), Chicago, IL, USA, pg 25.
