Offering for your consideration is this lovely antique Hawkes cut glass jar. This piece is done in their early "Venetian" pattern. The Venetian is a high-quality pattern that features fine wood wheel polishing. Venetian pattern contains a chain of 8-pointed hobstars. The hobstars have a field of fans in-between their points and a smaller clear-button 8-pointed hobstar in the interior. Fans lie in-between each of the larger stars. The center portion of the pattern is made up for 6-looped split-vesicas. This jar with its sterling top stands 4 5/8 inches tall. At its widest point it measures 10 2/8 inches around. Its beautiful ornate top is marked sterling and tested to ensure its purity. This is in well cared for condition. Sterling top fits nicely and holds securely in place. Exterior of jar does have base wear as expected with its antiquity. Light small fleabites but noting that deters from this beauty! You'll be pleased when you see it in person.
