ITEM 2012. BLOWN THREE MOLD DECANTER
WITH PERIOD STOPPER, (McK# GIV-6), colorless, gothic arch over
short ribs, heavy solid bar pontil scar, quart, flared mouth
ground for a stopper, mint. American, 1820-1840, scarce.
This fine blown-three mold decanter is molded in the scarce "gothic
arch over short ribs" pattern and as shown, the bottle retains
what MAY be a matching stopper. (The McKearin charts do not designate
a particular stopper for this mold.) In any case, the stopper
is a pleasing addition to this already fine decanter.
