Abp Libbey American Brilliant Period Cut Glass Colonna Decanter Crystal Acga For Sale
This is a particularly unusual decanter – it features two air bubbles in the neck which are blown right on top of each other. Each of the bulges is faceted entirely and gives it a look like two pieces of glass were applied together! The body of the decanter is bell-shaped and quite elegant. This piece is signed Libbey and is cut in their Colonna pattern.
The Colonna pattern is made up of what appear to be alternating 5-pointed stars. Each alternating section is made up of either a deeply cut hobstar or a flat hobstar. The formation is made up of checked cutting and full fans. The neck is fluted and notched up until the two facetedair bubbles. The base is finished with a rayed star.
The decanter is in great condition – the stopper appears to have had a chip polished out at one point in time, but is a great fit to the decanter. There is also a bruise to one of the facets on the stopper. The piece measures 12 5/8″ tall and 4 1/2″ wide.
