This is a William IV/early Victorian, engraved, amethyst glass mell decanter dating from the early to mid 19th century, c1835/1840. 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 consistent with some 150 years of use. The neck and lower body of the decanter are plain. The upper part of the body is nicely engraved with a trailing, fruiting vine and ends in a plain base with a polished out pontil mark. The decanter measures 15.5 cm (6.2 inches) in diameter at its widest point. The decanter is 18.5 cm (7.4 inches) in height. There are no chips, cracks, scratches or any evidence of restoration. The decanter is pictured just after being washed so some water beads can be seen. Weighing in at 456 g. (~ 1 lb.).
