£165.00

Tall cylindrical decanters of this proportion became very popular for a brief period in the mid-19th century.  The opaque white overlay decoration of this decanter is typical, with its broad band of stylised foliage, fruit and flowers around its middle cut into the opaque white to reveal the clear glass behind.  The neck and base are panel-cut also to reveal clear glass benneath and the vase-shaped stopper is similarly cut.

The decanter is in fine condition with no chips or cracks and holds a full bottle.

Date: c.1845-55
