Blown Clear decanter with doughnut hole Baccarat - Lenox - LSA?

Post by RVsaid on March 20th 2013, 7:54 am

Nice decanter here with 17 mark on the decanter base and stopper base so well made. Looks close to the Lenox one except it has a round top to the stopper and not pointed. Someone has sold one on etsy as Baccarat and Ruby Lane has one also. Third option is another etsy which just has it as Poland manufacture.

Interesting points include the shape of the ground out pontil, the fact that the stopper has a facetted finish to the end and that the 17 mark uses a European crossed 7 style number.

If it was Baccarat it would have the etched Baccarat mark on the base.

Is the hole all the way through? because I saw a similar one recently which was pressed either side leaving a 'window' in the middle. Unfortunately it didn't have a mark or label so I don't know who made it.

It is all the way through - couple of links below - looks like people just do not know but the Baccarat attributed got $373 so just shows what misleading people gets eh :0(

Does seem like the Baccarat one. Is there a decent amount of wear on the base?

Yes it does at the ends but that is due to the base arching, tough call but I would say about at least 40+ years of age with nice fine lines from genuine slow use. Almost exactly 12 inces tall, down to mm so possibly very precisely made. I think the Baccarat sale was a chancer and trying to think back to the ground out pontil mark on my last 'Aristocrat' decanter as I'm not in love with the more oval shape of the ground out.
