    This is a clear glass decanter with a silver overlay of grapes and leaves.

    There are markings on the bottom in the silver:

    999/1000 FINE
    Marking which appears to be Alvin Manufacturing Co.
    1508

    Height: 11" tall with stopper, 8-1/2" tall without stopper
    Diameter: approx. 5-1/4"

    What I found, providing this is indeed from Alvin, is they were acquired in 1928 by Gorham and the Alvin mark may have been used until the 1970s.
