This is an eccentric form, late brilliant period cut glass comport by the New York State firm H. P. Sinclair and Co. It bears their usual etched "S" in a circular wreath mark. It is also inscribed "6731". It is a light weight blank in a form that resembles a martini glass: the bowl is shallow and sits atop a long, slender stem. The cut work in the bowl is a latticework of intertwined geometric designs and vines while the base is simply done with interconnected vines. Please note that there is no gilding of the cut work. For some reason the photographs give that impression. Probably executed around 1920, it is an interesting example that conveys lightness rather than a heavy and substantial feel.
Condition is good with no chips noted.
Measurements are: height, 10 5/8 inches; diameter of bowl, 7 3/4 inches; diameter of base, 4 5/16 inches.
This unusual and delicate form by a noted American cutting shop would make a nice addition for a collector or someone looking to decorate simply but in the pre-modern taste.
