    I did a little research on the information sent to me by artfoot and I have come across another antique cranberry dimpled decanter/jug I think it's by Thomas Webb around 1850. The decanter measures 9.1/2" in height and is in nice condition.

      This is later than 1850 as jugs with handles applied from bottom to top didn't start until about 1870. Also the dimples kind of declare Aesthetic movement, which again makes it post 1870. I still think it is pre-1900 and probably nearer 1870 than 1900. Sorry to be the bearer of bad tidings but the handle thing is one of those time barriers. When you see old catalogues you can clearly see it. For example in the Museum of London Whitefriars book by Wendy Evans it has pages from catalogues through the ages in the 1850s and 1860s pages they show all the jug handles are top to bottom but the 1870s pages have a mixture. Top to bottom handles fade out pretty quick after that.
