Offered is a striking Haig & Haig pinched 3-sided glass decanter with hand-chased sterling silver overlay. The decanter stands 8" H without the stopper and 10" H with the cork stopper in place. The decanter is impressed "Haig" on the bottom along with the number 5 and the initials "G. B." (Great Britain, presumably). The overlay is marked "Sterling 935" and also bears an illegible hallmark. There are two small areas of loss to the overlay (see photos) but these are hard to spot due to the intricate nature of the design. The rim of the stopper is dimpled and slightly uneven but the cork is intact.
Based on the overlay style and the way the glass was made, I would date the decanter to the early 20th century, probably the 1920's. It is a lovely piece and can do duty either as a spirits bottle or simply an eye-catching decorative accessory.
Thank you for looking and please call or email with any questions.
