5132 A Prussian 4-Ring Decanter

Click on the images to see more detail

This is a typical 'prussian' decanter - but for one aspect - it has four neck rings instead of three.  Perhaps it was made for a man with five fingers (in addition to a thumb) as the usual three rings fit perfectly between the four fingers of the hand.  It has panel, or slice-cut shoulders and neck and the base has a band of fine fluting.  It is fitted with a target or bull's eye stopper which may be original.

As is usual with this model, it pours well and is thoroughly fit for purpose.

Date: c.1810
