5068 An Early Cut Ship's Decanter
This is another fine ship's decanter. The body is a broad pear shape, and is decorated with slice- or panel-cutting to the shoulders and neck, and it has three plain shallow incised neck rings. The lower part of the body has a band of broad flute cutting. It has a (replaced) bull's eye pear-shaped stopper.
Like most ship's decanters, this example is of fine glass blown thickly. The lack of a sharply everted lip is a sign of 18th century making and this makes it a good early example.
Dimensions: 11", 28 cm. high incl stopper.
