A fine and handsome, full bottle size “Lynn” decanter with a shoulder style body with six incised rings or corrugations and broken pontil mark. The loose fit and un-ground multi-teared stopper has a rather attractive open elongated central tear and a broken pontil mark at its base.
Height with stopper 10½ inches;
Height without stopper 9 inches
Body diameter at base 4¼ inches;
Capacity 850 mL.
Good condition. The stopper appears to be original in that it is period, sits at the correct height in the neck and is well fitting for a lose fit stopper i.e. not ground to fit as is usual with decanters. The decanter shows fairly light and normal wear for it’s age and the body is free of bloom.
