Follow that crystal outline!

Antique Fancy
Non-round shapes such as Pear, Marquise, Oval, etc. cut prior to 1940 have some of the same features we associate with old cuts: most often an open culet, a blockier pavilion (thanks to short lower halves) and sometimes a taller crown and smaller table.  In principle, the rough dictates the final outline and many times the result is a hybrid of standard shapes, for example the "Moval Cut" (Marquise + Oval).
As expected, sharp points are seldom seen and rather rounded from Bruting in the pre-forming process.
Generally 1890-1930s
Likely Holland, Antwerp, London
Other Names
Depending on outline: 
Moval Cut
Antique Marquise, Oval, Pear, Drop
Large pops of light from the larger crown facets.
The common "Bow-Tie" effect which radiates from the relative center of antique fancy cuts is uniquely complement the larger pops of light in the roundest areas.
