This is an early 20th-century decanter of Art Deco form. It comes from my own collection and I have owned it for many years before offering for sale in my online shop.
It has an unusual shape - with the main body section formed like a cone. It sits on a large round foot. It has a shaped neck and collar - and into this sits a large faceted stopper - the geometric design of the shapes very much inthe Art Deco taste.
The decanter is made of clear glass - and decorated all over with large shiny silver stars. One star on the flattened section of the cone has been sightly rubbed over time and seems to be just ilttle less shiny and duller in its finish, but perhaps this is just how the light hits it - none of the enamel paintwork is missing (as photographed). But given that this decanter is nearly 100 years old it is in fine condition. It would look lovely on display on a glass tray with chrome handles with a little set of cocktail glasses.
Dimensions: Overall height (including stopper) is 9 3/4 inches. Top of the main body section is 9 1/2 inches. The diameter of the foot is 3 3/4 inches. The body height 7 1/4 inches. The stopper height is 3 inches and diameter at the top of the stopper is 2 inches.
With its atomic / geometric silver stars - I think that the decanter would look so good with a brightly coloured gin as its contents.
It is a rather rare example - and the only one that I have seen of comparable shape is one that sold with a specialist dealer for $1200. That one had the exact same body shape and stopper - but it had a different black enamel geometric decoration to the exterior and was accompanied by four small matching tumblers. They described their decanter as being inspired by the Czech glass designer, Karl Palda.
