    Just picked up a great Victorian or older decanter with ground bottom, cut sides, and gold stars, banding and border. Any help with the maker/ age and origin would be greatfully appreciated. Also would be interested to know what a decanter of this size was used for. It measures approx. 9 1/2" in height. Thanks!

      These kinds of decanters were from the late 1700s, however, ones with these checkerboard type motif were still in the Kosta pattern books up to at least 1940. Yours is too well made, and looks to be pre-WWII. What I can tell you is, it would have been expensive to buy and is a good thing.
