This is an early Victorian heavily cut cylinder or Nelson decanter and stopper dating from the mid 19th century, c1845. The decanter is in excellent condition for its age. This means, of course, that it shows the age related wear and tear to the rim of the base commensurate with some 175 years of use. The decanter has a wide pouring rim and is prism-cut down to the shoulders. The body is panel-cut. The star-cut twelve edged base measures 9.3 cm (3.7 inches) in diameter. The decanter is 17.8 cm (7.1 inches) in height without the stopper and 21 cm (8.4 inches) tall with the stopper inserted. There are a couple of minor chips to the prism and panel facets as is to be expected of this type of cutting after this amount of time. There are no other chips, cracks, scratches or any evidence of restoration. The stopper is of radially-cut mushroom form and is of the right type and is contemporary with the decanter. It is a good fit and is possibly the original. There are no chips, cracks, scratches or any evidence of restoration. It weighs 1,032 g. (~ 2 lb. 4 oz.). It holds 500 ml. (~ 17 fl.oz.) of liquid, approximately 2/3 of a standard bottle of wine.
