Early 20th C. Japanese Sterling Silver Overlay Captain or Ship's Decanter

Offered for sale is an early 20th century sterling overlay glass ship's decanter or captain's decanter with stoppered top. The decanter is fully decorated with a thick "Cherry Blossom" sterling overlay pattern, marked on the bottom,"Sterling 950", denoting early to mid 20th century Japanese sterling content.

Ships' decanters are shaped with a wide base, usually more squatty than other decanter forms, giving it a lower center of gravity to allow for stability in rough seas. These wonderful pieces are now collected for their handsome shape, splendid to showcase on a tray or bar, especially the fabulous overlaid examples.

The decanter is in excellent condition with a slight indentation to the stoppered top.

Size: 7" Height.
