800 German Silver and Cut Glass Wine Decanter, Stamped with H. Schaper. Hugo Schaper (1844-1915)
was a Berlin Court Jeweler. In 1875 he opened his own shop in Berlin.
After his death in 1915, the shop continued well in the 1940s under the
direction of his son Carl Hugo Schaper.This graceful decanter is
13 inches tall. The base has a diameter of 3-3/4 inches. The weight is 2
pounds, 2 ounces. The front has an ornate monogram that appears to be the
letter S. There are no chips or cracks. The finial has taken a slight
bump on one occasion (before it got to me) and it has a slight list (see
photo 12). The serial number is A10874. The
little candlelabra mark stamped to the left of the 800 denotes the Koch
and Bergfeld Company, Bremen Kirchweg 200, founded in 1829. They are
still in business to this day. Insurance and shipping are included.
