Tadpoles or tears........or cairngorms?
These tears are clear and not green.
There are eight of them around the decanter that meet at the bottom which has a ground and polished pontil.
This decanter is a mystery. I have seen another cairngorm decanter: British or Bohemian Art Nouveau Style Glass Decanter
a new piece by "cogito" on CW.
I've put this one hurriedly on to show similarities to his. I had supposed my decanter to be Whitefriars. But I am asking for help here and advice as to whether it is Stuart or Whitefriars.
I've had another look at the stopper and see that it is marked '8' and the lip of the decanter has an engraved '19'. This troubles me a bit. The stopper is a Whitefriars shape. But is it exclusive to them?
