This is a wonderful decanter with matching stopper. It has beautiful designs cut into the yellow exposing the clear glass. Flowers, leaves, lattice work, buildings and elk designs decorate the main part. The base has oval cutouts around the edge. Thumbprint cutouts decorate the neck and rim of this piece. The stopper has panels on the slender part exposing the clear glass and also etched design around the middle. The form, method of creation, style of decor, and crystal recipe help date this wonderful piece date to the early 1900s. The beautiful "Bohemian" style of overlay cut glass has been made for centuries and still made today. Present day overlay glass is mixed, blown and cut by machine, usually made in Poland or the Czech Republic (and even in China). These stunning relics of the past were all hand-cut. Yesteryear's Bohemian glass was made in France, Germany or Czechoslovakia. At the turn of the 19th Century, American makers like Duncan Miller made this beautiful glass style also. There is a small nick on the rim or this piece other wise it is in wonderful condition.
