Decanter (or perfume) stopper size question
« on: January 23, 2013, 01:22:58 PM »
Can anyone tell me what sort of stopper this decanter should have. The hole is really tiny, as far as I can tell as it's difficult to measure the hole is one centimetre or less. Many thanks.

Might be for perfume, on a lady's dressing table, rather than for alcohol. In which case it would have a long narrow glass stopper.

I think this is a lesson to me to be much more descriptive. The object weighs one and a half kilos and stands eight inches high so I have assumed it is a decanter of some sort. On the other hand is it possible that there were perfume bottles this big? With such a small hole anything poured comes out in a trickle as I've tried it with water. It is monogrammed with an "R" - could it just be meant to be decorative?
