6517 A Plain Prussian Decanter with Three Neck Rings


Click on the images to see more detail

This is a good and quite early example of a 'prussian' decanter.  It is devoid of decoration - except that the neck has three rings to aid one's grip (there are three gaps between the fingers of the hand).  The early date is evidenced by the pear-shaped stopper and the slightly everted pouring lip.

The decanter is in good bright condition without any interior cloudiness and there are no chips, cracks or restorations.  There are a few minor scratches as one expects from a decanter of this age.  It is very fit for purpose.

Date: c.1810

Dimensions: 11.5", 29.2 cm high incl. stopper
