Any guesses on age or origins of this ewer/cruet? Almost 7 inches tall, ground pontil, no uv reaction. Floral decor and Applied handle are hand painted.
the ewer
the bottom
the top

The inside of the neck isn't ground, so maybe it didn't have a stopper?  Is more properly called a decanter, ewer or cruet?
