This listing is for an early blown three mold decanter with its original blown molded stopper. Lead glass, colorless; blown-molded; barrel shape, sloping shoulder, molded collar rib at base of plain tapering neck with flanged lip.
This is a RARE find. It is in the Arch and Fern with Snake Medallion Pattern (GIV-7). This is the most complex of the Arch Patterns.
THIS EXACT DECANTER IS ON DISPLAY AT THE CORNING MUSEUM OF GLASS AND CLASSIFIED AS RARE.
Hand blown - three mold - Flint glass - Early American Pattern Glass.
This decanter was most likely made by either the Boston Sandwich Glass factory of Sandwich, Massachusetts and also by Deming Jarves' New England Glass Bottle Co. of East Cambridge, Massachusetts.
Circa - 1825-1835. That would make this gem approx. 193 years old.
This work of art measures approx. 10 1/2" tall and 4 1/4" wide.
The stunning stopper is a hollow swirl-ribbed cushion stopper with sunburst top.
This is a must for anyone who loves collecting as much as we do. Photos do not do justice to its beauty.
IT HAS BEEN PART OF OUR OWN PRIVATE COLLECTION SINCE 1972.
This gem is in excellent antique condition. Glass is clear. Any white in the photos is from my camera flash. There are a few pin pricks here and there. No chips or cracks. Remember that you are looking at a very old item that was used. Please examine the photos very carefully to add to my description. Ask all needed questions before purchase.
