This fine antique George V cut glass and sterling silver mounted decanter has a square shaped rounded tapering form.

The impressive decanter has a plain hallmarked sterling silver collar incorporating a fully working locking mechanism which retains the removable key*.

This antique decanter is fitted with the original rounded cut glass stopper with a bayonet style sterling silver fitment; once the stopper is removed it is placed back over a catch and loop to lock into place.

The body of this cut glass decanter is embellished with a diamond design in addition to a star cut base.

*This locakable sterling silver collar and mortice is a noteworthy feature. John Grinsell and Sons created many high quality sterling silver mounted items. Grinsell patented the 'Sesame' lock up liquor stand, and the device on this decanter may be a variation of this unique locking system.
