unusual armorial decanter
« on: February 24, 2006, 04:15:48 AM »
Hi
I have this unusual decanter or serving bottle which i would like your opinion on.
The armorial is that of the Sandeman family of the Ports and Sherries fame. The glass is quite heavy wiyh a very slight yellow tinge. There is a few white oxide traces in the glass as well  some small bubbles. The pontil has been polished.there are remains of gilding on thebase of the  neck , foot, and very top. The enamel work has been painted on a glass lozenge which has been applied to the body, its edges have been polished. It is 11 1/2 inches high.
