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

The glass body is in perfect condition.

Full hallmarks struck to the surface of the mount and part hallmarks to the stopper and locking mechanism are all very clear; the maker's mark to the mount shows signs of wear in keeping with age and due to location.


Reflections in photographs may detract from the true representation of this example of antique glassware.


Height to top of stopper 21.8cm/21.8"

Width of base 8cm/3.1" square

Diameter of stopper 5cm/2"
