Description


This fine antique George V cut glass and sterling silver mounted decanter has a square shaped rounded tapering form.


The impressive decanter has a plain hallmarked sterling silver collar incorporating a fully working locking mechanism which retains the removable key*.


This antique decanter is fitted with the original rounded cut glass stopper with a bayonet style sterling silver fitment; once the stopper is removed it is placed back over a catch and loop to lock into place.


The body of this glass and silver decanter is embellished with a diamond design in addition to a star cut base.


* This locakable sterling silver collar and mortice is a noteworthy feature. John Grinsell and Sons created many high quality sterling silver mounted items. Grinsell patented the 'Sesame' lock up liquor stand, and the device on this decanter may be a variation of this unique locking system.


Date: 1927

Condition


This antique decanter is a very good gauge of sterling silver, fine quality and in excellent presentation condition.

The glass body of the decanter is in perfect condition.

There are some minor blemishes to the glass and sterling silver mount as to be expected.

Reflections in photography may detract from the true representation of this fine glass and silver decanter.
