#16748 This is a rare find. It is a sizable punch bowl cut in the Columbia pattern by Blackmer.Columbia is their best recognized and one of their top 2 patterns. It is very distinctive with the arms of 6 sided diamonds sort of akin to cane cutting but nicer.
The blank is likley a Libbey blank. It is incredibly brilliant and high quality. The punch bowl is shown on page 5 of the Blackmer catalog. The cutting is among the finest in precision.
The punch bowl never turns up so I doubt many were made. It is 14 diameter and 13 tall.The item "RARE AMERICAN BRILLIANT 2 PART PUNCH BOWL IN COLUMBIA BY BLACKMER STUNNING" is in sale since Saturday, October 6, 2018.
