Wow!  This is one of the nicest pieces of Hawkes' "Holland" we have seen.  The blank is shown in the Hawkes catalogs as blank No.670--Tray.  The piece is 15-inches long, 10 3/4-inches wide and stands 2 1/4-inches tall.  The blank is very clear, water-white and weighs 9 1/2-lbs.  Portions of the blank measure 5/8-inch thick and more!  The cutting is entirely wheel-polished to a mirror-like perfection and has an unusually silvery appearance.  A large, heavy, very deeply-cut piece of American Brilliant cut glass that is an exceptional example of the craftsmanship of T.G. Hawkes & Co.  It is signed with the Hawkes' shamrock near the inside center of the tray.
