Technical Description 

A mid 19th century European  Segmented Liqueur decanter with its 4 original glass and cork stoppers, one for each segment which would hold a different liqueur. Applied neck ring and polished pontil.

Historical Relevance 

This form of decanter was very popular and made across Europe from the 18th century onwards. This is a first half 19th-century example, no later than 1850 and a particularly fine large example with an annulated collar and original stoppers. Lead glass and not English, possibly Iberian.

You can see an example of this decanter on page 470 plate 659 of "The Decanter an Illustrated history of glass from 1650 By Andy McConnell"
