This is an incredibly beautiful bowl, which we believe was made by the Pitkin & Brooks Company in the early 1900s. The pattern called Heart and Hobstar was patented by the company in 1907. It features glittering feathered hearts on the sides and ends, cut with a hexad motif. In between the hearts, separated by a thick miter line, are hobstars. The hobstars rest above two interesting “column” shapes topped by fans. The base is cut into a highly detailed, many pointed hobstar. This is a perfectly cut and polished bowl that really draws the eye.
This comes from the estate of Phil’s mom, who was a passionate collector of American Brilliant cut glass and other fine art glass.
SIZE: 9” by 5 1/4” by 2 3/8” high.
CONDITION: This bowl is in very good to excellent condition. There is one small chip above a heart at an end that can be seen (about 4x2mm). Otherwise, there are a few tiny nicks here and there which are more noticeable by touch than by sight.
