SCARCE GIII-2 TYPE 2 BLOWN THREE MOLD DECANTER WITH MATCHING ACORN STOPPER

ITEM 5990. BLOWN THREE MOLD DECANTER WITH MATCHING ACORN STOPPER STOPPER, (McK# GIII-2 Type 2), clear flint glass, pontil scar, quart, outwardly flared mouth, a mint bottle with a few wisps of light interior haze. American, 1820-1840, a scarce decanter with a rare stopper.

It has been proposed that acorn stoppers were used for special orders and that they were never intended to "match" any particular blown three mold pattern. With that said, the metal and fit of this stopper seem to indicate with near certainty that the two pieces started out their life together and that they are in fact a matching pair. As shown, the stopper and well blown decanter work beautiful together, striking a handsome pose and elevating the whole from good to GREAT.
