A fabulous, early 20th century hand-blown and copper wheel-engraved colorless glass scent bottle from the premiere American cut glass studio of T. G. Hawkes & Co., Corning, New York. This scent features an intricate, deeply cut band of leafing blossoms meandering around the body of the bottle, with panel-cut loops, engraved with a feathered pattern, extending from the shoulder of the bottle through to the top of the neck. The bottle has its original stopper with the same cut, feathered and looped panels and exuberant floral design.
This beautiful bottle stands 6 1/2" high and measures approximately 5" in diameter. Quite a substantial piece of glass weighing two pounds! It is in very, very good undamaged condition. There is a tiny, tiny fleabite on the base of the stopper. There are no chips, cracks or regrinds and there is no interior staining. The glass has a wonderful clarity and sparkle. Both the bottle and stopper are signed with an acid-etched trefoil 'Hawkes' signature.
A very, very lovely example of American cut glass at its finest.
