4091 A Miniature Shaft & Globe Decanter
This is a VERY small decanter which holds about 100 ml. (10 cl) - about sufficient for one measure of port or sherry. It is decorated with a band of long thin printies around its widest diameter, and the neck is panel-cut. It has a facetted ball stopper which is contemporary, but not orginal, as both the decanter and stopper are numbered.
This is a fun object - something of a talking point to have guests contemplating its original purpose. Perhaps it was for some wildly potent spirit - or absinthe?
Dimensions: 5.9", 15 cm. incl stopper, 4.6", 11.7 cm without stopper
