Described in contemporary catalogues as the "revival of old time decoration" This would pass for a Victorian rich cut decanter of 1870 with ease.

 

Additional Information : The 'Rich' or 'Brilliant' cutting style began in the mid 1870s as people tired of repeated classical designs. The style was first refined in America but the complex and deep cut designs soon reached Europe
