Help identifying decanter
« on: August 06, 2012, 07:51:57 PM »
I've recently acquired this decanter and would be grateful if anyone can help identify the style or better still a maker and age. It stands about 12.5 inches tall including the stopper. There is a pontil mark which has not been polished. Thanks in advance.

Do you mean there is a sharp pontil mark? I think we need a picture of the base please.

I don't think that's a pontil mark at all. It looks machine blown and the stopper is also moulded. I would say mid-20th, but I know little about decanters.

Thanks - that's helpful in itself.
