Not sure i'll ever be able to get an ID for this wine flagon, but I thought it was so beautiful that i just had to show it off. I'm not sure if it would have originally had a stopper (?) but there is no sign of wear inside the neck nor a kind of ground surface that you often see with decanters to keep the stopper in place. The photos may make it hard to see the wonderful wheel cut engraving, which I think dates it to the turn of the 20thC in the Art Nouveau period.
forgot to mention, it had loads of limescale inside when i bought it, but i've found that Silver Dip solution works wonders!!!! and it's very quick, unlike vinegar or lemon juice type concoctions.

That would be a good tip to add to the glass restoration thread, I haven't heard that one before.

I don't know what it is, but, yes, it is beautiful.
Just my personal opinion, take it or leave it.

Silver dip solution ? is that what it says on the tin. Sorry for sounding dumb, its easy for me to do I have a crystal water jug, with ironically, water stains. I could use the powder I have but it takes hours of rubbing. Please could you tell me how you used it and where to get it. Thanks. Pete

it's a jar of clear liquid (contains ammonia,so use with caution and DON'T mix with bleach), called Goddard's Silver Dip. You can get it in large Asda's, probably Robert Dyas or John Lewis. Much easier to use on small bits of silver than the creams as well, so it's a useful thing to have in the store cupboard.
i just put a small amount in the flagon and swished it round for a few minutes.
I would guess Stevens and Williams or Webb. The lilies might be a clue. It's lovely and a quality piece of work
