These are decanters produced in the 1830s-40s. All with applied neck rings, blown mushroom stoppers, panel cut shoulders, and vertical cuts to the body.
These types of decanters are deeply out of fashion, and in the UK can be bought quite cheaply. In general they sell for £20-40, and this is in clean condition with original stoppers.
What is so sad about this, is that they are cheaper than a new decanter, yet they are so practical to use, and have 150 years of history in them. Even now I have one flying to me in the post, the same as the 2nd one along, that I got for £4.99 in eBay. If I am lucky it will make a pair.
