Click on the images to see more detail

This is a fine quality 'Prussian' decanter of c.1790-1800.  It is cut with three broad incised or integral neck rings between vertical panel cutting.  It has a slightly everted lip and the lower section is cut with fluting.  The stopper is a bevelled inverted pear shape.

The weight of this decanter demonstrates its high quality made in an age when glass was sold by weight.  It holds a full bottle with ease and pours well.  We recommend it as a good 'everyday' using decanter.

Date: c.1790 - 1800

Dimensions: 11.6", 29.4 cm high incl. stopper

Price: UK customers £265, US customers $345, Euro customers €305, Australian customers $465
