An American Brilliant Cut Glass nappy that features a 16 point Hobstar center with a very unusual truncated scalloped fan rim. The bottom has a deep miter cut 6 point star. Single stars embellish the points of the pattern in between the mitered star points. The cuts are precise and even and beautifully cut. The handle is applied We have not found a mark and have not identified the maker.
Much of the old glass was unsigned and paper labels did not survive: It would have required acid marks to permanently identify the manufacturer or glass-cutter. But a black light helps to establish the authenticity of old cut glass. The majority of ABP glass pieces will fluoresce lime-green when exposed to black light. This piece was black light tested and fluoresces beautifully!
