French A.guyot Art Nouveau Sterling Silver Etched Crystal Nightcap Decanter/cup:
I'm sure there's another name for this but what I believe it to be is a bedside decanter for a nightcap before turning in. It's sterling 950 silverbound frosted and grooved etched glass styled in a floral accented garland like motif. The glass and decanter are a match and marked with French Hallmarks for 950 silver and the makers mark of Auguste Guyot. The stopper at the top of the decanter is actually a mini flask made to hold a shot of whatever and the decanter itself would hold water or some other mix. The decanter is 8" height to the top of stopper and the glass is 3" height x 2 3/4" diameter across the top. The decanter and glass are in very good condition. All frosted etching is crisp and well defined. The drinking glass is free of cracks or chips and shows modest wear. The decanter also shows modest wear but does have a small crack on the inside of the neck. The crack is inside the glass, smooth to the touch and does not leak or affect the performance of the decanter in any way. It is only visible when the shot holder is removed. A lovely old piece that you won't be disappointed in. Starts low with .
