This splendid decanter was made in the closing years of the 19th century. It has an ovoid body decorated with seven vertical panels of hobnail cutting between deep V grooves. The shoulder is panel-cut below diamond facets and an everted rim. The base is supported on a low foot and is star-cut underneath. The hollow spire stoppepr is cut in four sections to match the body.
The decanter is in excellent overall condition - no cracks, no or negligible chips and it is bright and clear. It is very fit for use.
English c.1890, 12.9", 32.6 cm high incl. stopper.
