Decanter with stopper
Overall: 12 3/4 x 5 in. ( 32.4 x 12.7 cm )
Colorless lead glass decanter blown in a mold (possibly pressure molded); cylindrical neck with rounded lip, ring at shoulders, conical body heavily molded with rounded pillars that separate six drapes, with pillars extending onto base with possible ground pontil mark in center; cork stoppers painted black with yellow and gold vine and grapes.
This decanter could either be pressure-molded (which would mean it was made in France, 1825-1855), or it is mold-blown (which would mean it was made in England or America, 1840-1870). See publications.
