Welcome to Antiques & Moore! This listing is for a unique cut crystal decanter/bottle with chased Dutch silver cased decoration.
We believe this bottle to date to the 1890's although we were unable to find the silver export stamp. The silver content is at least.
The decanter has an embossed silver applied band encircling the lower section of the bottle with a pierced silver decorative figural band around the mouth of the bottle. The stopper is also decorated with silver cased figural decoration and has a figure sitting in a sailboat mounted on top. Measures 7 1/4" high (to top of bottle), 10 1/2" high (to top of stopper), has a 1 3/8" diameter top, a 3" diameter base and measures about 4 1/2 at widest.The glass body of the decanter is high quality lead crystal with a panel cut design widest at the bottom (above the silver decorated base) and narrows as it reaches the diamond cut "knob" at the center and then is panel cut on the slender neck. The stopper has a diamond cut encased in the silver. The glass body and stopper are in excellent condition with no chips, cracks or repairs. The silver is also in excellent condition with no noted flaws. Although we were unable to find the tiny punch marks used on this type silver, we are certain that it is Dutch silver and it tests to be a minimum of. We have had several similar decanters and dresser items with this type decoration that have had the appropriate marks.
