We LOVE this and believe it to be exceedingly rare. A truly gothic decanter and stand, ideal for that red or green sticky liqueur nay poison - that is lurking at the back of your cupboard.
Measuring some 13 inches high and weighing in at 3lb (both measurements include the brass stand) this heavy piece of kit must have started its life gracing the table of some bishop or other, or perhaps it even escaped from a papal feast under the skirts of a light fingered cardinal. The decanter itself is cut glass and a tad damaged (big chip on final collar and some nibbles out of the stopper topper nothing an idiot with a diamond file cant improve.)
The brass holder is highly decorated in the gothic style down to a Tudor rose normally hidden under decanter. The base is covered with green baize so it will not scratch your polish as one cleric slides it to the next.
We guess high Victorian.
