A fine antique crystal cut flute and panel or bar lip decanter in the Anglo-Irish tradition, probably American, Pittsburgh, and from the middle period, 1830-1880. This wonderful piece has cut panels around the body, each panel being separated by a cut blaze and then having a cut "window" within each panel. The upper body has cut flutes which are matched on the neck. The neck has double neck rings at the lower and upper ends and a rounded lip. The matching stopper has cut panels all around.
The decanter stands 10" tall to the top of the stopper; 7 3/4" tall to the lip edge. The base diameter is 3 5/8".
Overall condition is very good--good clarity to the glass with a trace of residue at the very bottom. There are a few fleabites along the edge of the flutes where the decanter would have bumped against another bottle over its 150+ years. These are quite minor. There is a chunk out of the bottom of the stopper as pictured, not uncommon for a piece of this age. There is considerable age wear to the base ring as pictured and as expected.
