Just out of a smoke free house is this fine antique glass decanter with a heavy engraved silver overlay. It has a nicely detailed fancy floral Art Nouveau overlay with matching stopper.
It has a scrolled cartouche with an engraved monogram. The decanter and stopper are both numbered #402.
The one quart decanter measures about 13 1/4 inches tall and about 5 1/2 inches wide. It is substantial and weighs almost 3 pounds 5 ounces.
It is very well marked Patented 3617 QT. 999/1000 Fine and has the Alvin silver mfg. The decanter is in very good condition and is just as we found it. It has some Very small dings on the silver, a few small nicks and light scratching on the star cut base from wear, a few Very tiny flea bites on the stopper, and there are signs of light residue on the interior. We did not try to clean the interior or polish the exterior but the decanter could benefit from a good cleaning and polishing.
There are no cracks or other chips. See photos as they are part of the description.Would make a nice addition to any collection and is guaranteed as described.
