This is a wonderful decanter with matching stopper. It has beautiful designs cut into the red exposing the clear glass. Flowers, leaves and designs decorate the main part. The base has oval cutouts around the edge. Thumbprint cutout decorate the neck and rings. The stopper has circular designs exposing the clear glass. This piece weighs 2 lbs 15 oz which shows the quality of the piece. The form, method of creation, style of decor, and crystal recipe help date this wonderful piece date to the early 1900s. The beautiful "Bohemian" style of overlay cut glass has been made for centuries and still made today. Present day overlay glass is mixed, blown and cut by machine, usually made in Poland or the Czech Republic (and even in China). These stunning relics of the past were all hand-cut. Yesteryear's Bohemian glass was made in France, Germany or Czechoslovakia. At the turn of the 19th Century, American makers like Duncan Miller made this beautiful glass style also. This piece is in excellent condition with no chips or cracks.
