This is a French art glass wine decanter with a clear hollow stopper; the stopper appears to be original to the bottle. The glassmaker is Cristalleries de Nancy, or Crystal Glass of Nancy. The date is circa 1922.
The bottle has an acid mark on the bottom that I was not able to photograph, so I provided the text copy in the first photograph for your perusal.
The bottle is 12 1/2" high to the top of the mouth, 15" high to the top of the stopper and 4" wide at the base.
The shape is a long cylinder with a round flared mouth.
The glass of the bottle is ruby red or pink cranberry crystal. The stopper is clear crystal glass with a raised design on the glass and a mold seam down each side.
There are two wide bands around the bottle that are cameo glass, glass that has been cut to show a design of raised flowers, stems and leaves in red against a frosted clear glass.
Cristalleries de Nancy was a glassmaker in business from 1922 to 1934 and they were affiliated with Baccarat. The glassmaker produced crystal glass items of high quality with an emphasis on cameo ornamentation in the Art Deco style.
There are no chips, nicks or cracks. The tip of the stopper, the part that fits into the wine bottle, is ground down and it appears to have been done by the glassmaker.
