This is a heavy, cut glass, late Georgian, English, three-ring Prussian-shaped decanter dating from the early 19th century, c1820. 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 180 years of use. The neck of the decanter is decorated with three hand-applied annular neck rings. The body of the decanter is hand-cut with a row of broad petal-flutes to the shoulders and a basal band of finger flutes. The plain base measures 10 cm (4 inches) in diameter. The decanter is 21.2 cm (8.5 inches) in height without the stopper and 25 cm (10 inches) tall with the stopper inserted. It holds approximately 900 cl. of liquid (about one and a fifth standard bottles of wine). There are no 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 reasonable fit but is possibly not the original. Yo can turn the stopper in the neck of the decanter and lift the decanter by the stopper when empty, always a good sign that they may have been made for each other. There are a couple of tiny chips to the end of the stopper peg. It weighs 895 g. (~ 2 lb.).
