A fine piece of American Brilliant cut glass that displays to advantage and causes comment
This pair of clarets are not cased glass but are a solid green glass whose intensity of color increases with the thickness of the glass. They are well-crafted, ‘old’ glass whose cutting is wheel polished and whose stems are in-notched. They stand 5-inches tall and have a 2 3/4-inch top diameter; the base has a 16-point radiant star. Both top and base rims are in their original condition. An eye-appealing and interesting pair that promote conversation. Both are in better than extremely fine condition

This American Brilliant cut glass bowl is cut all over, stands 3 1/4-inches tall, has a top diameter of 8 1/4-inches and weighs 3-lbs. 13-oz. It fluoresces properly and uses known American Brilliant Period motifs in the design.
This bowl has an unusual rim treatment, uses hobstars with four different centers, merges design elements in unusual ways and still looks great! The blank, cutting and polish are all very well done and the piece is in better than extremely fine condition.
After 10+ years of searching for its cutting house and/or its design name, we give up….. Your turn! We would greatly appreciate your ID help and comments about this lovely bowl.
Due to its exceptionally clear, colorless blank, the curvature of its blown-out shape, and the mirror-like polish on its finely-cut, 7-motif design, this serving tray sparkles like diamonds! A beautiful piece that brightens any display.
The tray measures 12 3/4-inches long, 7 3/4-inches wide and stands 2 1/2-inches tall on each end. The two large hotstars on the sides have 32-points and the hobstars on each end have 24-points. American Brilliant cut glass at its best! Unfortunately, the cutting house and design are unknown. The piece is in better than extremely fine condition as outlined on our website. Enjoy!
THIS PIECE HAS BEEN SOLD
The “Byzantine” design was patented February 13, 1909 by William R. Eliot and assigned to the International Silver Company. The unnamed design was assigned the name “Byzantine” by Revi who also said: “Eliot’s designs were undoubtedly cut at the Meriden Cut Glass Company shop — a subsidiary of International Silver — from blanks provided by the Pairpoint Corporation of New Bedford, Massachusetts.” (See Revi, page 93 of second book.)
J. Michael Pearson called the design “one of the rarest and finest patterns (designs) of the Brilliant Period!” Pearson also rated “Byzantine” 1 for rarity (rarest/highest category) and 1 for quality/price range (highest category). It is possible that Pearson’s 1-1 rating is understated as we have located photos of only two items cut in the full patented design, a 10 x 4-inch bowl and a 9 x 4-inch bowl that we sold for $5,000. We know of only two versions of the patented design, one on a 9 x 2-inch low bowl shown in a Hobstar ad (November 1992) and the other is a twin to our bowl in size, shape and version and is shown in the Hobstar of September 1996.
This bowl has a delightfully odd shape that measures 10 3/4-inches from one point-to-point set and 9 3/4-inches from the other point-to-point set with heights that vary from 3 1/8-inches to 3 3/8-inches. The cutting is precise and beautifully polished to a mirror-like brilliance on a clear and colorless blank that weighs a heavy-to-the-hand 4-lbs. 12-oz.
This piece is in better than extremely fine condition (as defined on the website) and is a beautiful piece of American Brilliant cut glass that displays to advantage.
This American Brilliant cut glass cheese cover and plate are exceptionally well-cut and have very clear, colorless blanks. The six-motif design is precisely cut and has been polished to a mirror-like brilliance.
– The plate is 9-inches in diameter, stands 1-inch tall at the rim and has a 32-point radiant star
– The cover is 6-inches tall and has a maximum diameter of 6-inches
– Assembled, the two pieces weigh 5-lbs. 2-oz.
– The plate has the Hawkes, Sinclaire and Egginton ‘U’ cut at the low points on the plate rim
– The cutting house and design name are unknown
– Both pieces are in better than extremely fine condition
Both pieces of this most unusual footed, covered comport are signed with the ‘shamrock’ trademark of the T.G. Hawkes Co. It stands 9 1/2-inches tall with the lid in place and 6-inches tall without the lid; it has a maximum diameter of 7 3/4-inches. The piece is heavy to the hand at 4-lbs. 15-oz. and has a 24-point radiant star on the base. The clarity of the colorless glass is stunning.
A simple but elegant shape that displays to advantage and is in better than extremely fine condition.
T.G. Hawkes & Co. of Corning, NY was one of America’s finest cutting houses and was also one of the first companies to patent their designs. The “Aberdeen” design was patented by T.G. Hawkes on April 14, 1896. The design and its execution are typical of Hawkes’ ca.1896 work product; the blank is of the highest quality, the cutting is extremely deep and the wood-wheel polishing has a mirror-like brilliance. Pearson rates “Aberdeen” 3 for rarity (very rare) and 4 for quality/price range (high priced).
This is a large piece measuring 13 1/2-inches point-to-point, 11 1/2-inches side-to-side, stands 1 3/8-inches tall and weighs a hefty 4-lbs. 14-oz. The tray is in better than extremely fine condition and is an excellent example of the best of early American Brilliant cut glass. A really handsome piece that deserves prominent display in your collection.
We have enjoyed this large, high-sided, oval bowl for several years. The blank is amazing! It is very clear and has a diamond-white color that sparkles as it reflects light off the deeply-cut major miters. The cut-all-over design is precisely executed and completely wheel polished to a mirror-like brilliance. Even the inside of the bowl looks like it was wheel polished!
— The bowl measures 12 3/4-inches long, 9-inches wide, stands 5-inches tall at each end and weighs a very heavy-for-its-size 8-lbs. 11-oz.
— The blank is 1/2-inch thick and fluoresces a deep, soft, apple green that is very similar — if not the same — as known Steuben blanks
— The rim has the Hawkes, Egginton and Sinclaire ‘U’ cuts but the design does not show in the books or catalogs of any of these three companies
— The piece is in extremely fine condition as defined on our website
An unknown American Brilliant cut glass beauty that causes comment and deserves predominate display in your collection. Enjoy!
