The hobstars cut into the sides of both creamer and sugar bowl are shaped almost like teardrops. The prominent hobstar centers are cut into a cane type pattern. The hobstars are surrounded by geometric shapes filled in with hobnails, diamonds and stars. The base is cut into a hobstar as well. The handles are not cut; the rims are scalloped and polished smooth.
We have not found a mark and have not identified the maker.
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: Length of the sugar bowl (from handle to handle) is 7 3/4”; diameter at the top is 4 5/8”. Diameter at the base is about 3”. Height is 2 1/2”. Length of the creamer (from handle to spout) is about 5 1/2”. Width from side to side is about 3” and diameter of the base is about 2 1/2”. Height is about 3”.
CONDITION: One handle on the sugar bowl has a line through it – right where it is connected to the bowl. We cannot tell if this is a crack in the handle, or a defect that happened during manufacture. The handle is very solid, but it is visible. The last picture shows this very well, along with what appears to be bubbles that burst--which may have caused the crack.
