5082 An 'Indian Club' decanter with Cut Decoration


Click on the images to see more detail

This is a good example of an Indian club decanter having an elongated barrel-shaped body.  The neck and shoulders are panel- or slice-cut and there are two double bands of very shallow step cutting at mid-shoulder and mid-neck level.  the lower part of the body is cut with a band of broad flutes, and the decanter is fitted with an inverted pear-shaped stopper.

This is a handsome and practical decanter that holds a full bottle.  It will pour well without gurgling, so is thoroughly fit for purpose.

Date: c.1785

Dimensions: 11.9", 30.4 cm. high incl. Stopper.

Price: UK customers £295, US customers $385, Euro customers €340, Australian customers $515
