Andy McConnell describes an identical three part moulded decanter as being either British or American. The style of glassmaking was brought to American by Thomas Cairn's in 1812. He joined the South Boston Flint Glass Company in New England where it was advertised they could make "Decanters, Wines, Tumblers moulded and cut into all the varied forms of taste and fashion, fairly challenge comparison with articles of a similar kind from any part of Europe".
