    Thought you would like to know.......
    J. Hoare & Company registered their trademark, as illustrated on this signed bowl in 1853. Most of the vast quantity of unusual and brilliant, completely handcrafted pieces were cut, from 1895, and throughout and beyond the American Brilliant Period which ended in 1916. The Period:  1870-1916). 

    We owe many thanks to J. Hoare, who helped in the establishment of many of the most renown and influential cutting houses of the Period.  Hoare emigrated from County Cork, Ireland, in 1853.  The original Hoare cutting business was Brooklyn Flint Glass.  Hoare was induced to move to Corning, New York, where the company was then called Corning Glass Works:  The cut glass department was  J. Hoare & Company.  John Hoare became known as Captain Hoare after having won a gold medal at the World's Columbia Exposition in 1893, in Chicago.  James Hoare, his son, continued in business using the same name after the death of his father.  They  produced some of the finest cut glass of the Period and counted the White House among their numerous clients.   

    It is also important to note the following regarding the momentum of the Period's beginnings:  In1868,
      John Hoare asked Thomas G. Hawkes, also from Cork,  Ireland to join his firm. Hawkes remained with Hoare & Company until 1880, when he established his own firm. Many of the most renown cutters of the period worked for Hawkes,  just as Hawkes had worked for Hoare, before starting their own businesses -  Egginton, Sinclaire, Hunt.  And so an extremely important and influential part of the American Brilliant Period had its beginning with the trademark issuance -J. Hoare & 
    Co.  in 1853.

    I would now like to describe this 8" in diameter bowl which weighs almost 5 pounds and reaches a height of 4 inches:
    "Pluto"  is among the most famous Hoare designs, such as "Croesus", "The Wedding Ring" design, "Manitou", "Carolyn". The list goes on and on and each is extremely valuable and very desirable.  None surface often. Some never. "Pluto"   is rarely brought to the marketplace,  and I have never seen this, his variation of "Pluto" offered.

    I have decided to list it for a limited time.

    Pearson has placed this pattern, Hoare's "Pluto Variation" in a sub category, under Chain of Hobstars, that he termed "Chain.......with beading and strawberry diamond".   Beneath a saw toothed and scalloped outer edge, there are double finely cut "X" crossed miters outlining the hobstar chain which circles the bowl.  The centers, also hobstars have been cut in relief. The hobstar formation is constructed with points and cross-hatching, so that the entire area is cut with in much the way one would draw a parabola. The hobstars are set in diamonds, beneath which you will find triangles whose bottoms are curved and filled with strawberry diamond. The third field, which terminates at the center of the bowl is the beautifully executed beading. There are lateral cuts at the top with the beading that is cut using enhanced miters, or flutes.. In the center of the bowl there is a hobstar, with a profusion of points and a hobstar cut in relief in its center.

    The entire design has been planned and designed and finally hand cut to produce an effect of total radiance and brilliance.  The linear and curved miters are integral to the pattern and outline and separate the areas astonishingly well.  The miters that have been cut in the hobstars glisten in daylight.  All appear to be as perfect as one is able to imagine.  There is symmetry, balance, resonance with a musical lingering tone, use of refractive and reflective qualities to their utmost possibilities. And so the production of brilliance and radiance is a fait accomplait.  Cut through and through, one can view the bowl from either the front or underside and see each magnificently executed motif and the various motif groupings.

    Please review the photos and remember this description and the photos do not in anyway display the true glory of this magnificent collector item bowl.

  • Without any pattern flaws: however, there are two flawed teeth: One has a very small chip at its top and the other is flayed on the inside. The display is good in that the cutting and light well cover the flaws.  I do feel that repair would not be difficult.  These are very minor faults when you consider the age and its rarity.  There are few chances to acquire a rarity at this time in a Buyer's Market when collectors are hesitant to offer their valuable items for sale.

    • So to summarize:  Perfect symmetry 
      and balance.
      The blank is superb, hand blown, water white and all cutting has been completed, completely by hand. Hand polishing followed.  So it follows that 
    there is radiance, refractive and reflective
     qualities, brilliance, clarity.
    Workmanship and craft in design and cutting are indicative of Brilliant craft.
    • I hope that you will bid and win.

    Thank you.
