19th Century hand blown decanter in clear colorless glass having a ribbed, mallet form body enameled all over with gold fleur de lis decoration, and its rim highlighted with gold gilt enamel. Fitted with a hand-blown, ribbed, balloon-form glass stopper.
Measures overall approximately 11.5” tall. No damage or restoration to decanter. In the making, the stopper acquired a trapped impurity (see photo) resulting in a stable annealing crack. Polished pontil with no. 1974. Circa, 4th quarter, nineteenth century. Unsigned, however this particular ribbed form is remarkably similar to a line produced by the Daum factory from about 1885 - 1890. For examples, see the book, Daum, Mastery of Glass by Noel Daum.
