DECANTERS

Decanters were used extensively in the nineteenth century for the very good reason that most alcoholic beverages had a huge amount off sediment.  One of the reasons that so many drinking glasses had fluting or honeycomb patterning to the lower half of the glass was to hide the amount of sediment that had been poured into the glass.  Decanting didn't get rid of all the sediment, but it did allow for much of it to be poured off before it was served to a guest.  Decanting was required for all types of liquor including ale and champagne.  



Georgian, gilded, small rum decanter and stopper

Georgian, gilded, small rum decanter and stopper

This is what we believe to be a small, English, Georgian, gilded, Prussian-style, three ring Rum 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 over 150 years of use.  
 
The pouring rim of the decanter shows the remains of gilding.  The neck of the decanter is decorated with three hand-applied angular neck rings.  The body of the decanter is plain save for a faux gilded label for Rum within a cartouche.  The base has a polished pontil mark and is 7 cm (2.8 inches) in diameter.  The decanter itself is 18 cm (7.2...

Late Georgian champagne decanter

Late Georgian champagne decanter

This is what we believe to be a rare, Georgian, hand-blown, sugarloaf champagne decanter dating from early in the 19th century, c1810.   It is possibly earlier and there is a similar decanter in Andy McConnell's book, "The Decanter, an Illustrated History of Glass from 1650" at plate 636 where a date of 1770 is given.  I have dated it later due to the cutting which is in the Regency style.
 
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 use.

Pair of Georgian/Regency cut glass decanter stands

This is what we believe to be a pair of late Georgian cut-glass decanter stands dating from the beginning of the 19th century, c1820.
   
The stands are in excellent condition for their age.  This means, of course, that they show the age related wear and tear to the rims of the bases consistent with some 200 years of use.  
 
The stands measure 20 cm (8 inches) in diameter and the centre resting zone measures 11.5 cm (4.6 cm) across, so allowing decanters of up to that base measurement to be placed thereon.  The underside of the stands are cut with bands of relief diamonds as are the upper rims.   There are the expected, very minor flea bites to some of the cut facets.  There are no...
