      If you can get a better shot of the mark it would help. The anchor suggests England Birmingham but there are some other discordant ideas. Maybe the bee is a leopard's head? Not a bad pick at all for a buck!

      I those are exactly the marks, the dog is a lion and the UK sterling mark for 925 silver, the Anchor is the city mark for Birmingham and the letter is a gothic G is the year 1830. I don't know about a lions head but a leopards head is London and it can't be made in London and Birmingham. We usually think of shaft and globe decanters as Victorian, but yours is Regency when it would have been a rare shape. The palmate pattern on the silver is a classic Regency pattern, and the top is very reminiscent of Brighton Pavilion from that period. The hallmark and style go together, the top and decanter go together because of the chain and glass loop. I think you have done very well for a dollar. Don't tell the people you bought it from.
