This cruet is 6.5 inches tall with the stopper. The diameter is 2.25. The stopper is ground and has a rough pontil. The cruet was made by Duncan Miller in the early 1900s. (Ezsell and Newhouse VOLUME 1, CRUETS, CRUETS, CRUETS, p. 136). The cruet is made from blown in the mold glass. The pattern, Punty Band, features wheel cut flowers and beads.
The top portion of the decanter has a wheel cut floral etch with vertical line cuts. The top pattern is separated from the bottom pattern by a narrow double ring band. The bottom part has a vertical line which looks like serrated ribbons in columns on each of the panels. The cruet neck is fluted just above the design.
Although the stopper is not the original one (it differs from the one shown i the photo on p. 136), it fits well. The stopper is ground. There is slight wear around the stopper area of the cruet.
There are no chips or cracks and the glass is still clear with no signs of residue or discoloration. When black light tested, the glass glows canary yellow under the UV.
