Listed is a fine representative of fine American cut glass , produced at a time when European glass houses were considered the international leaders in cut glass production.

"HAWKES" - D elft Diamond pattern hand cut blown glass wine decanter with an impressive heavily clad. This is a rare piece produced by the T. It measures 12 " inches in height and measures 5-1/2 " inches in diameter at its widest point. Rling clad onion domed stopper. But suits the decanter well.
The underside of the decanter is acid etched with an early marking : a fleur de lis with a bird/hawk on either side , all encased inside a trefoil , underneath which is etched " HAWKES ". All component pieces of this mark are very distinct, but the etching is light. Was unable to snap a good image. Pix # 12 , which is vague, provides some semblance of what it looks like.
The sterling silver stopper is marked " STERLING " just above where the base of the sterling onion dome meets the glass. Also hand- scratched is the number " 13 " in the glass area of the stopper. The large stopper measures 4 " inches tall by its' 2-1/4 " diameter. See all pictures and "item specifics " above for additional details.Thank you for shopping younique_expressions!
