The Ladle is not brilliant cut crystal but we thought it would be a nice addition. Very nice HC Fry Empire Company crystal punch bowl with a detachable base in the Argo pattern; which features a series of hobstar and diamond cuts. The interlaced pattern revolves around the circular hobstar with a smaller star in the center. Around the design, angular cuts highlight sections of diamonds and smaller grid-like patterns. The base has a solid foot with a hobstar in the center allowing it to fit firmly in the base.
The detachable base mimics the pattern with a wider bottom which tapers to the top. The bottom and rim of the bowl are scalloped with a sawtooth pattern adding an addition level of elegance to the bowl. The ladle is simple and clear with a gentle curve allowing it to extend out of the bowl. The spoon section has a large round bowl with a small spout for controlling the flow of liquid. This piece is the combined effort of two glass making companies in the early 1900's.HC Fry Glass Company crafted high quality blanks in Rochester, New York to be retailed around the country. The Empire Cut Glass Company, a subsidiary of Fry Glass, was known to primarily use HC Fry high quality blanks, cut and retailed the Argo Pattern and many others.
