This is likely a little finger bowl, made in the early part of the 1900s. It features the strawberry diamond and fan pattern, and is very similar to a bowl in this pattern made by Hawkes. There are subtle differences, and this bowl is not marked. We believe this one is not made by Hawkes, although it is very well cut. We have not identified the maker. The base is cut into a 34 point star.
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: Diameter at the top is 4 3/8” and at the base is about 2 3/4”. Height is 2 1/4”.
CONDITION: There are three very small chips on the base (largest is about 3x2mm). Otherwise, we do not see any chips or cracks in the glass.
This is a pretty little piece of glass that would display well – and would also be beautiful on the table with candy inside.
