A rare American crystal decanter dating 1810-1850. 10" tall, the center is hand engraved with bowknot swags of leaves and tendrils. Cut flutes about the neck, inverted thumbprint cuts on the upper rounded body, then 2 rows of inverted cut ovals. The lower portion repeats the double row of inverted ovals, with inverted thumbprints cut around the base perimeter. Cut starburst bottom and original lapidary stopper. There are no chips, cracks, or damage to this piece, and it glows a dusky yellow when exposed to UV light. Most likely of Philadelphia area origin, perhaps Dithridge or Phillips. An excellent example of early American glass.
