This is a beautiful American Brilliant Cut Glass Cream and Sugar set from around the turn of the last century. We love the shape; the sugar bowl flares out rather than coming in at the top, which is somewhat unusual and very attractive. Both pieces feature a hobstar on each side. Deep miter cuts sweep up on either side of the hobstars. A smaller hobstar graces the front of the creamer. The rims are scalloped, and the bases are cut into stars. The handles are notched with quite deep bull’s eyes. The spout of the creamer is fluted and notched. We have not found a mark and have not identified the maker of this pretty set. 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: The sugar bowl measures about 6 3/8” from handle to handle. Diameter at the top is 4 3/8”, while diameter at the base is 2 1/4”. Length of the creamer from spout to handle is just over 5”. Width from side to side is 3” and diameter of the base is 2”.
CONDITION: There are a few small flake chips on the inside of the rims, and a few very tiny nicks here and there, but these are only seen with close examination. There is some imperfection in the glass blank in places. Overall condition is very good.
