Until the 1670s wine was served at the table in jug or green glass bottle. The decanter started to appear after 1670 and usually took a jug form, it wasn't until the middle of the 1700s that decanters were seen in a form we are more familiar with now.

 

This is a mid Victorian decanter, the body and the shoulders are panel cut and polished. It would have most likely been used for sherry or port, and would have been  found in a relatively wealthy household.

 

The decanter and stopper are both in good condition.
