Click on the images to see more detail

This is an elegant example of a late 18th century decanter of taper form.  It has a panel- or slice-cut neck and a slightly everted lip.  There is a band of fine flute-cutting around the base and he decanter is fitted with a lozenge or pear-shaped stopper with a bevelled edge.

The decanter holds a full bottle and pours well.  There are no chips or cracks and there is no cloudiness - so thoroughly fit for purpose.

Date: c.1790

Dimensions: 11.6", 29.5 cm. high incl. stopper
