6512 An Unusual Small Ships Decanter
This small decanter holds a litre to the neck, but a half-bottle would suit it well. The body is a simple conefluted at the base and engraved with a band of small stars mid-body below a pair of light horizontal chevrons, enclosing further stars and polished ovals. The neck is panel-cut and it has three incised neck rings below the slightly everted lip.
Like all ship's decanters, this one is unusually heavy for its size (weighing 795 grams). It is also unusual for being engraved as few ships decanters are.
Dimensions: 10", 25.4 cm high incl. stopper
