This is a beautiful old decanter for serving water, wine or perhaps a nice double malt scotch. The bulbous base has a trim neck that flares at the top. The neck has eight panels with zipper cut edges. I am not terribly knowledgeable when it comes to glassware of this sort so I don’t know the patterns but it appears to have fans, pinwheels, stars and crosshatching. The bottom has a 32 point star. I don’t know if this falls in the category of American Brilliant Period or not but it is a very attractive piece and would be a beautiful way to serve even an inexpensive bottle of wine. The estate we purchased this from stated that it was originally acquired as a wedding gift in 1916. This style of decanter did not come with a stopper.
It measures about 7 ½” high and approximately 6” in diameter at the widest. It is in very good condition with minimal wear and no noted damage. There is a slight amount of foxing in side the bowl of the decanter.
The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
