This special piece was designed by William C. Anderson and likely cut by American Cut Glass Company. The blank of the whiskey jug was made by Libbey.
The an pattern is an incredible combination of motifs William C. Anderson was known to use. The main vesica consists of three clear-button hobstars connected with fields of crosshatching. That vesica is surrounded on either side by notched cutting. Feathered cutting envelopes each of these vesicas and a hobstar sits perched atop and below the feathering. The base of the decanter has a rayed star. The original stopper is finished with crosshatching and topped with a clear-button hobstar. The handle is triple notched while the spout is finished in the traditional lapidary manner.
The decanter is in perfect condition and measures 8 5/8″ tall and 4 3/4″ wide. The Anne design displays particularly well on a vertical piece like this and this blank has always been one of the most popular of the Brilliant Period.
