These exceptionally rare American Brilliant Period Brazilian pattern cut glass four-arm candelabra were crafted by the renowned T.G. Hawkes & Co. The Brazilian motif is one of the most intricate and visually appealing American Brilliant Period cut glass patterns ever made. It is beautifully executed on this pair with its trademark alternating strawberry-diamond and fan cuttings featuring a brilliant hobstar at its center. Both the precision of execution and artistry of design are hallmarks of Hawkes' most desirable creations.

Founded in 1880 by Thomas G. Hawkes, the Hawkes Company was making glass for the White House by 1886. In 1889, two of their cut glass patterns won the Grand Prize at the Paris Exposition. This coveted prize not only brought prestige to Hawkes, but for the first time, American glass gained a firm place on the international stage. By the 20th century, American cut glass was world-renowned, with Hawkes's Cut Glass Company providing some of the finest and most inspired pieces of any other maker.
