I've had several pieces with the Hughes Cornflower cutting over the years and am grateful to the kind person on eBay who told me what the design was called. Hughes was a Canadian who started a cutting company in his basement that became one of the best known glass decorating firms. Their premiere design was Cornflower. Cornflower is a flower and leaf design that you won't mistake once you see it. The flowers have 12 petals with fringes around the tips formed by tiny cuts. Flower centers have hexagonal grid and the leaves are deeply cut sprays. This picture is from the article by Walter Lemiski on the National Depression Glass Association website. My thanks for its use.
