To fall in love with the visual appeal and marriage of elements of this rare piece is an easy thing to do.The unusual squat shape with a short silver neck and rounded shoulders of the amethyst cut to clear glass is very regal looking.The deep fluted fan cuts to the bottles sides and the cut stopper opposite each other beautifully.Which by the way, makes for a brilliant show when reflected by sunlight or candlelight.The silver is not simply an overlay but has been poured in after the design was first cut into the glass with art nouveau style and grace that was so loved and cherished today as it was then.As shown in photo 6,which was taken with a flash t( to be able to see better )there is a small piece of silver missing but it does show evidence of the steps taken to complete the piece and of the silvers thickness.The bottom of the decanter has been cut with a star design.Measurements are 6 1/2" tall,5" wide with a circumference of 14". I don't know why some of the photos have turned out with a pinkish tint but be assured it is a deep purple / true amethyst shade.
