Footed European Crystal Glass Cordial Liquor Decanter with Gilded Enamel Grapes

Footed European Crystal Glass Cordial Liquor Decanter with Gilded Enamel Grapes
A gorgeous crystal art glass cordial liquor decanter with rich red enameled grape vines, all hand-painted and trimmed in gold around the decanter's teardrop belly. The short tapered foot, spout rim, bubble stopper, and handle all have a gilt trim, with both ends of the applied handle adorned by a trefoil leaf.

Standing 9" high to the stopper top, I'm uncertain as to whether this decanter would have been used for dessert wine, as a vinegar cruet, or simply for display.

Showing only a hand-painted number (79) styled in European form on the underside of the foot, I am uncertain as to maker, but believe Baccarat is a likely candidate. (Baccarat didn't start marking their glass until the 1920's or thereabouts, and the glass and construction of this piece is definitely high quality. Finally, the bubble stopper is much like those I've seen on marked Baccarat decanters.)

In excellent condition, with no nicks, chips, or cracks, and only a bit of wear to the gilt trim on the spout and stopper.

Customer Reviews
I received my mugs today and I could not be happier. Packaged with great care, lovely card to say thank you, and all intact. They are better than expected, with the size I really wanted, thinner rim for sipping coffee and hot chocolate. I really have a thing for pottery mugs and these are great quality and wonderful drip glaze. Flashback Alley owner Holly is wonderful to work with, great communication, extra service all along. Thank you again! I love them.

The packages of Royal Doulton tea cups and dinner plates arrived in perfect condition. I could not be happier with the merchandise. Holly is personable and cares about the quality of the product as well as the packaging. Holly is a pleasure to work with and I will be shopping at Flashback Alley in the future. I'm so glad I found Flashback Alley!
