If the world famous Hawkes Factory were still in operation, it would seem they just yesterday created this dream of a piece -- at least, that's the way it appears in its original, ideal condition with both glass and sterling free of issues. Wow' factor presence at 7 1/2 tall, this stately, signed Hawkes , Rock Crystal, pedestaled Muffineer with hallmarked, double Sterlng mounts is engraved on a perfectly clear and brilliant blank with exacting detail: e.
The upper band of hundreds of incredibly narrow miters, punctuated with clusters of pointed punties, is further bordered both above and below with chains of oval splits, each separated with microscopic miters. Another band of larger, oval punties rings the pedestal base. The Hawkes trefoil is easily seen, dead center on the base and can also be spotted when looking into the shaker. Some call this a Muffineer, others a Sugar Shaker or Sugar Sifter, and occasionally, a Talcum Shaker.
Pedestal, signed, sterling mounted examples (many are plate) are extremely difficult to acquire, especially in this condition. One of the photos shows the Shaker next to a standard size 8 bowl for perspective. Perfect Cabinet piece, and the height of elegance at the table.The item "Hawkes PEDESTAL STERLING MUFFINEER AMERICAN BRILLIANT CUT GLASS ABP Perf Cond" is in sale since Friday, October 22, 2021.
