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 19th century. It has three neck rings, which allow a good grip for pouring.

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

Date: c.1815

Dimensions: 10.2" high incl. stopper
