Antique Early Georgian glass RARE Cruciform decanter serving bottle c 1720
February 25, 2021
On offer from my own collection. Rare original early Cruciform decanter or serving bottle c 1720. They were closed using a cork not a glass stopper, and the idea was that having more body area from the shape, the contents would cool quicker when placed on ice. They were said to be uses for cider or champagne. This one having a v section string rim similar to an onion wine bottle, and re-fired type pontil. Good used condition no chips or cracks, but has had professional restoration to the lip at some time in its life, but does not detract nice job. Height 20.5 cm 9.5 cm across base both ways. Added 23/02/21 The chip like shape in the lip is not a chip, just a fold in the glass or air bubble not a problem not broken the surface. Only some one asked that question today. I WILL BE LISTING OTHER EARLY GLASSES FROM MY COLLECTION OVER THE COMING MONTHS, SO LOOK OUT FOR SOME BARGAINS.
