5142 An Elegant 'Prussian' Decanter


Click on the images to see more detail

This decanter is slightly unusual in that it is a transition form between a 'prussian' and 'indian club' shape.  Also slightly unusually, it has two (not three) neck rings.  The panel cuttting on the shoulders extend through the neck and there are two bands of step-cutting - a single step each - above and below the central plain section of the body.  The base is flute cut and the decanter has a bevelled pear-shaped stopper with a central lenticle.

This is a very practical decanter which holds a full bottle and is in fine condition with no chips, cracks or restoration.

Date: c.1800

Dimensions: 12", 30.5 cm. high incl. stopper
