GLASS CUTTER / PATTERN NAME: The glass cutter and pattern name are unknown to me. This same blank appears on page 81 of the ACGA Val Saint-Lambert catalog reprints. These decanters are listed as Pyramide as their shape. Because of this reference I'm comfortable in saying that Val Saint-Lambert surely made the blank and this may be one of their unlisted patterns or they could have sold the blank to another company to be cut by them. A cranberry colored decanter with this same shape is located on page 163 of the book Rarities In American Cut Glass by Wiener & Lipkowitz.

AGE: This piece was probably made in the early 1900's.

BLACK LIGHT TEST RESULTS: The clear glass fluoresces the icy blue-green color that is typical of many pieces of American Brilliant Period cut glass.

MEASUREMENTS: 15-3/4" high and 4" in diameter at the bottom.

WEIGHT: 2.1 pounds

BLANK / GLASS CLARITY: This is a blown blank with a layer of emerald green glass on top of clear glass. The glass is generally bright and clear, but to be very picky I'll mention a black speck that is only 1/16" in size that is embedded in the glass of the top rim. You have to look very hard to notice it.

CUTTING DETAILS: The pattern is created by the green class being cut to reveal the clear glass underneath. The lower portion of the pattern consists of elongated ovals that provide a cool optical effect that can be seen in my pictures. The cutting has good depth and the overall precision is excellent.

POLISHING QUALITY: The finish looks and feels very crisp.

CONDITION REPORT (ALWAYS VERY PICKY): The stopper is obviously a replacement. It fits very well and is certainly better than none at all. On the side of the top of the stopper are 2 pencil point sized nicks. On the center waist area of the stopper is a small chip that is only 1/16" in size. The stopper plug has evidently had some work done on it. The bottom is cut at a slight angle and there is an eye shaped groove on the bottom that is 3/16" in size and about 1/32"deep at its deepest point. On the top edge of the decanters hole is scribed the number 8. The original stopper surely had this same number scribed on it. If you look closely there are a couple of pinpoint to pencil point sized nicks on the outer edge of the decanters top rim. The notched neck area is in great shape. On the shoulder area is a small chip that is only 1/16" in size. Otherwise the center area looks very good. The lower side portion has a few pencil point or less sized nicks and some minor wear near the bottom outer edge. The bottom looks very good with some typical minor wear scratches on the high spots. The interior is clean with no sickness or residue. Please remember that my condition reports are far pickier than most and a typical person would consider this piece to be in very good condition overall.

FINAL COMMENTS: High quality cut to clear items like this are getting very hard to find these days. In spite of the replaced stopper, this is still a great decanter that will display very nicely and could certainly be used if desired.

offerDING FORMAT: There is with a $9 starting price. This is my favorite way to sell even high-priced items. I will never under any conditions end my sales early to sell to an anxious buyer requesting a buy it now.

SHIPPING & INSURANCE: A flat rate for shipping with insurance included by USPS Standard Post (formerly called Parcel Post) to anywhere in the U.S.A. will be $10. This method may take longer, but should save money for both of us. I don't ship my cut glass outside of the U.S.A. Please don't ask me to make an exception just for you. I will gladly combine multiple purchases at a reduced rate based on the buyer's location.

I am a member of the American Cut Glass Association. I subscribe to the ACGA Code of Ethics. I regularly buy quality cut glass and I hope to have plenty more to offer in my future items. I'm very much into cut glass, but I'm not your typical cut glass collector and dealer. I prefer to enjoy this glass for short periods of time and everything that I buy will eventually be sold. Because of this strategy I'm able to sell even the most desirable and rare pieces that I can find and not keep them for myself. Many serious cut glass collectors have benefited because of this and I also hope to keep the casual or beginner buyers happy with some desirable cut glass also. Please check out my other current listings and bookmark my site or add me to your favorite sellers.

RETURN POLICY: Please offer with confidence, your satisfaction is always guaranteed. I offer a 14-day return privilege. If you are unsatisfied or if you feel the item was misrepresented, it may be returned provided the item is in original condition. If the return is the result of an error on my part, I will refund the shipping & insurance costs also. For questions please use the "Ask seller a question" link in the sale or you can phone me at 412-486-9727 during reasonable Eastern Standard Time hours.

Payment

SALES TAX: Pennsylvania residents without a valid resale tax number are asked to please add 7% sales tax (6% PA. & 1% for Allegheny County) to your final purchase price when checking out. There will be no exceptions to this tax if you live in Pennsylvania and do not supply a valid resale number.


I accept the following forms of payment:
  • PayPal




Shipping & Handling

I will try my best to send out items within 24 hours of receiving payment. If this is not possible I will inform the buyer of the intended shipping date. Shipping including insurance is given as a flat rate to anywhere in the U.S.A. Depending on the buyers location and size of the box, I will use at my discretion either USPS Priority Mail or USPS Parcel Post. If by some chance my flat rate amount is larger than the actual cost, I will refund the difference. I do not charge for packing materials & handling. I pack all items very carefully to ensure a safe arrival.

$10.00 USPS Parcel Post®
