T.J. Hawkes & Co.
Signed 12" Trumpet Vase
Etched Floral & Hobstar Cuts
This is a signed Hawkes American Brilliant Period cut glass trumpet vase.
The vase stands 12" tall and has beautiful large tapered oval cuts along stem with a thick star cut base and etched floral with alternating hobstars along top with thumbprint edge.
This vase shines brilliantly under light, tests positive for American Brilliant Period, and is crystal clear.
The vase does have a ¾" chip on one side along the top edge within the deep miter cut.
Since these vases are usually displayed on a shelf the chip side could be placed to the rear. Acceptable flaws differ for everyone but this vase is truly magnificent, even with the chip.
The glass is thick and heavy with a nice ring when tapped.
The vase carries the etched mark of T.G. Hawkes & Co. on its base.
