Early 20th Century Cut Lead Crystal Square Spirit Decanter c.1900
For a full product description, see below.
This is a high-quality cut lead crystal spirit decanter, maker unknown but probably dating to the turn of the 19th to 20th century.
The body of the decanter is approximately square in section, with chamfered corners. The shoulder has been cut with twelve panels; the panels that meet the corners of the body are elongated with a pointed end. There are two further facets cut on each large side of the body, giving the side a pointed upper margin. There is a short neck and the rim is everted and octagonal in shape. The base of the decanter is star cut and unmarked.
The stopper echoes the shape of the rim, being of flattened mushroom form and faceted around its eight sides. There is a short neck above the stopper, which has not been ground.
It has a height (excluding the stopper) of approximately 20.3cm and a maximum height (including the stopper) of about 23.6cm. It has a maximum width across the base of about 8.7cm.
It is in very good condition, with no chips or cracks, although there are some wear and tear scratches to the base. There is also a very faint water mark in the base of the interior; this is only visible on the closest of scrutiny and would not be seen when the decanter is in use.
