5191 A Good 'Prussian' Decanter


Click on the images to see more detail

This is a good 'prussian' decanter of elegant proportions.  It has, typically, three bladed neck rings, panel-cut shoulders and a band of flutted cutting around the base.   It is fitted with an inverted pear-shape stopper which is bevelled.  Such stoppers are sometimes referred to as "lozenge" stoppers, but I don't understand the logic for that as lozenges are quite differently shaped!

Holding a full bottle with ease, this is very fit for purpose and is to be recommended.

Date: c.1800

Dimensions: 11", 28 cm. high incl stopper.
