5185 A Plain Prussian Decanter with Annulated Neck Rings


Click on the images to see more detail

This is a very simple, plain Georgian decanter of a type known as a 'Prussian'.  That is not to say it is not English; it is, but the shape is known that way.

Holding a full bottle with ease, it is the quintessentail Englsih decanter of the opening years of the 19rth century.  It has three neck rings, each comprised of three smaller rings, the central one being larger than its neighbours.  Such an arrangement gives a good grip for pouring.

There is no decoration, nor is it needed, the form being the attraction.

Date: c.1810

Dimensions: 10.3", 26.2 cm high incl. stopper
