5259 A Fine 'Prussian' Irish (?) Decanter


Click on the images to see more detail

This really charming decanter was made in the opening years of the 19th century - very probably in Ireland. The milled neck rings, the simply moulded stopper (which appears to be original) and the somewhat quirky wheel engraving to the body all point to Irishness.

The decanter is very well crafted the shape being well-drawn and accurately symmetrical. the cut decoration around the body comprises stars, and stylised drapery with pendant 'arrowheads'.

In fine condition for its age and without any chips, cracks or cloudiness, this is a good and practical decanter we can happily recommend - either as a collector's piece or for daily (?) use.

Date: c.1810

Dimensions: 10.4", 26.5 cm high incl. stopper.
