This is a very well-cut and decorative decanter which is also entirely practical. The body is cut with three principal bands, the uppermost one is a broad band of 'diamonds' (or pyramids, above a narrower band of circular 'printies', while the lowest band has slanting grooves between very fine diamond-cutting. the bands are separarted by double step cutting.
The underside is star-cut and the shoulders are panel- or slice-cut. The lowwer two neck rings are diamond-cut while the top ring is plain. The hollow stopper is cut with vertical grooves below a diamond-cut crown.
The decanter is very fit for purpose, holding as it does, a full bottle (75 ml).
Dimensions: 9.5", 24.3 cm high incl. stopper.
