An early 19th century georgian nailsea glass carafe. The carafe has a bulbous body with a pontil mark underneath and a reeded double ring around the slender neck that has a flared lip. The decanter has a white opaque decoration within the blown glass that is typical of nailsea.
The carafe is in excellent condition. A characteristic of nailsea glass was splashed-on, flecked-on, or striped colour, and glass of this kind is often assigned to nailsea disregarding the fact that it was made throughout the united kingdom and also in america, and that is not possible to pin-point the place of origin. This item is made of glass.
