An early 19th century Georgian Nailsea glass carafe. The carafe has a bulbous body with a pontil mark underneath and a reeded double ring around the slender neck that has a flared lip. The decanter has a white opaque decoration within the blown glass that is typical of Nailsea.
The carafe is in excellent condition. The'Nailsea Crown Glass and Glass Bottle Manufacturers' was founded in 1788 at Nailsea near Bristol in England, and is known for its coloured novelty glass such as rolling-pins, canes, shoes, bells, top hats, model ships, pipes and other useful objects. A characteristic of Nailsea glass was splashed-on, flecked-on, or striped colour, and glass of this kind is often assigned to Nailsea disregarding the fact that it was made throughout the United Kingdom and also in America, and that is not possible to pin-point the place of origin.
