This a pair of late Georgian decanters of 'prussian' outline.  The bodies are panel-cut about their height, above  three basal step-cut rings and below the tripple ringed necks and pronounced flange rims.  The undersides are star-cut with a ground central pontil.  The mushroom stoppers are also star-cut.

These are eminently useable decanters, each one holding a full bottle with ease and with the neck rings, they provide a good grip to aid pouring.  

The decanters are in excellent bright condition, without any cracks or chips, although one stopper has a chip (which does not show when in the decanter) and one stopper looks to be contemporary but not original.
