This decanter consists entirely of wheel cuts. It is free from the needle etched plant/thistle design. The artist's initials are etched on the bottom of the decanter as well as the stopper. I conclude from my research that this thistle decanter is probably one-of-a-kind, and made expressly for a special client by a master Edinburgh glass cutter. The lack of an acid mark indicates that it likely dates to the early days of the company; circa 1900.
It stands approx 13 1/2 tall. CONDITION EXCELLENT There is typical age scuffing on the bottom of the decanter.
I cannot detect a single flaw or any evidence of prior use, even though a tag was applied to the bottom stating "J&B". Check out my other items.
