This is an absolutely amazing early Hawkes cut glass decanter pictures in a Hawkes catalog from 1885 in the book on Corning glass by Spillman. This is the exact decanter in every detail. The piece features tusks that are wonderfully carved and the blank is absolutely the best. Cut in super fine accurate cane below the tusks and terminates in a thick heavily rated foot.
The piece is extremely thick and heavy. The decanter does have a very tight internal hairline where the neck meets the body of the piece that runs about half way around. It is impossible to photograph, but it is there but very hard to find.You will not see this piece available very often.
