Beautiful Old Barber Bottle / Decanter Amber Glass with Silver Overlay

From 1895 to the late 1920s, this elegant and exciting manifestation of the glassmaker and silversmith's art garnered its own avid following, just short of becoming a decorative rage. Silver overlay and silver deposit were regarded as an exquisite, special gift or accent for that certain table or shelf. A few nice pieces of overlay were as evident in the genteel home as a piano in those days of refined, yet simple pleasures. This beautiful silver overlay bottle / decanter was probably made in the early part of the 1900’s. The glass is a wonderful yellow amber shade and has been decorated with a silver overlay design of trailing flowers and foliage set with a light and airy lattice-like pattern. The geometric angularity of the vertical and horizontal lines provides a vivid contrast with the curving free-flowing forms of the flowers and foliage which is most appealing. The silver has some wear so please see the pictures.
